Matthew Stafford might not be the only former Detroit Lions player currently up for grabs around the National Football League.
Shortly after the news broke of the Los Angeles Rams considering parting ways with their Super Bowl-winning QB, now the Philadephia Eagles might as well do the same with one of their biggest stars.
Slay is going to make at least $17 million next season, and the final year of his contract will incur a $26.1 million cap hit.
It’s also worth noting that Slay didn’t ask to be traded, and there’s still a possibility that he will stay with the team.
According to John Clark, Slay has stated that he wants to continue being a Philadelphia Eagle, adding that the money is important but that they hope they can figure something out that works both ways:
“I want an extension with the Eagles. I love the Eagles. I love that money, so of course I’m going to be talking about it this offseason. That’s everyone, that’s what all do when we’ve got 1 year left on our deal,” Slay said.

Slay has been one of the most steady contributors to their secondary defense since arriving via trade in 2020.
Also, the Eagles might be quite shorthanded on the defensive side of the football, as James Bradberry and CJ Gardner-Johnson are also most likely on their way out.
Add Jonathan Gannon’s departure to that mix, and there’s a strong chance that we’ll see their once-dominant defense take a major step back.
Will this be a one-and-done season for the Eagles after that failed Super Bowl trip? It sure seems like that.
