Darius Slay is an American football cornerback who has played in the National Football League (NFL) for several teams, including the Detroit Lions and Philadelphia Eagles. Slay played college football at Mississippi State and was drafted by the Lions in the second round of the 2013 NFL Draft.
Slay quickly established himself as a talented cornerback in the NFL, earning Pro Bowl honors three times and being named a first-team All-Pro in 2017. Known for his speed, agility, and coverage skills, Slay has been one of the league’s top cornerbacks in recent years.
In 2020, Slay was traded to the Philadelphia Eagles, where he continued to play at a high level despite the team’s struggles. While there were rumors about his potential release after the season, as of my knowledge cutoff in 2021, there was no official confirmation about this happening.
Off the field, Slay is known for his charitable work and community involvement, particularly in his hometown of Brunswick, Georgia.
