    Getty Images Darius Slay and Joe Schoen. The New York Giants don’t have much to complain about with a 3-1 record to start the 2022 season. But there is one former player that they might regret kicking out the door. In May, the Giants opted to release cornerback James Bradberry, who was in the final year of a three-year, $43.5 million contract that was set to produce a $21.8 million cap hit. The release was an attempt to clear money for their draft picks. The Giants still had to eat a $9.7 million cap charge in the process. Unfortunately for New York, the Philadelphia Eagles signed Bradberry to a one-year deal worth $7.25 million. He’s been a rock-solid outside corner opposite Darrius Slay and came up with his second interception of the season in Week 4. Bradberry has also allowed just 10 catches for 73 yards on 23 targets in four games. After the Eagles’ win on Sunday, Slay spoke to reporters and didn’t shy away from getting back at the Giants for letting Bradberry go. “They asking the...
    Getty Eagles CB Darius Slay celebrates an interception with C.J. Gardner-Johnson on Monday Night Football. Philadelphia Eagles cornerback Darius Slay earned NFC Defensive Player of the Week honors for the fifth time in his illustrious career. He was the definition of lockdown in Week 2. Slay held Vikings All-Pro Justin Jefferson to one reception on six targets, showing off his trademark swagger all evening after striking up a fast friendship with James Harden. Slay finished the game with two interceptions and five pass breakups. He has now recorded 119 pass breakups since 2013, which is the most in the NFL during that timeframe. Dominant. Elite. Unstoppable. There aren’t enough adjectives. Slay has put himself in the Hall of Fame conversation, according to Joe Haden. But Slay does it for another reason: interceptions equal big money. Seriously. “If I see ball, I try to get ball,” Slay told reporters. “I want the rock because the rock gets you a lot of money.” (Editor’s note: Slay is signed through the 2023 season after inking a 3-year, $50 million extension...
    Getty Pro Bowl CB Darius Slay has been voted the funniest guy in the Philadelphia Eagles' locker room. Pro Bowl cornerback Darius Slay has a magnetic personality, a breath of fresh air that his Philadelphia Eagles teammates love to breathe in. Rookie Jordan Davis didn’t flinch when asked to name the funniest guy in the locker room. Slay, all day. He lightens the mood and keeps things moving. “Slay, man, I’d say Slay. He’s a one-of-a-kind personality,” Davis told reporters on June 3. “He’s a guy you want to be around. He’s always keeping things light. You know, football is a hard game, it’s a hard sport, but just having those people that can keep things light, keep things moving, and keeping your mind off the football and the grind is really important.” That’s not to say Slay isn’t serious out there. He is constantly trying to improve his own game while mentoring the younger guys and challenging his peers. That includes talking a little trash to the receivers lining up across from him during intrasquad 7-on-7 drills...
    Getty Mac Jones Darius Slay is usually the one doing the chirping. Not at the Pro Bowl. He was on the receiving end of two vicious burns from New England Patriots quarterback Mac Jones. First, the rookie lobbed a perfectly-placed pass over Slay which Hunter Renfrow hauled in for a touchdown. Then Jones let the Philadelphia Eagles cornerback know all about it. He torched the four-time Pro Bowler, just like he did at training camp. The Eagles and Patriots participated in two days of joint practices last summer in South Philly. Many reporters on the scene at the time chalked up the Eagles as the winners. However, Jones didn’t agree with that assessment. Here’s what he said to Slay at last weekend’s Pro Bowl at Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas. Slay didn’t like what he was hearing, especially not with Chandler Jones and Javon Hargrave within earshot. Jones: What’s up, bro? Remember when I torched y’all in training camp? It was like training camp when I torched y’all. Slay: Hell no. We whupped your a** in training camp....
    Getty Darius Slay was searching for a palate cleanser after Sunday’s 42-30 loss. The Pro Bowl cornerback can’t stomach the taste of losing one game, let alone three straight. Slay was asked how he felt following another mistake-filled affair for the Philadelphia Eagles. Honesty set in and he blurted out: “This s*** sucks”, then pitched a great idea for an orange juice commercial. “I feel the same way after one loss as I do three. We gotta get in that win column,” Slay said. “I gotta get this taste out of my mouth. It tastes nasty. I’m finna go find me some orange juice and spray it in the back of my throat.” #Eagles CB Darius Slay hates the taste of losing after losing 3 straight "I need to get that taste out of my mouth, taste nasty! I'm going to find something, spray orange juice down my throat!"@bigplay24slay #Eagles pic.twitter.com/UUowF6GMm9 — Jeff Skversky (@JeffSkversky) October 3, 2021 Slay must have had a fridge full of orange juice in Detroit because he played on some really bad...
    Getty Eagles CB Darius Slay takes great pride in mentoring the younger players on the roster. Darius Slay could be an extra in a Kevin Hart movie. Funny, charming, and damn good at his job. He’ll playfully challenge anyone within ear shot with a non-confrontational comedic language all his own. On Tuesday, the three-time Pro Bowler joked that the game of football is the same as it was in 1960, only with “better looking people” doing it, then he proceeded to refer to Quez Watkins as “Ugly Quez.” Classic Slay. When a teammate yelled out “Hey Slay!” during his time in the media tent, the Georgia native shouted back: “Yoooooooooo!” It’s all about keeping it loose while building chemistry. “Everybody wants the best [for each other] and that’s the feeling we have in the [defensive backs] room,” Slay told reporters. “That’s a great thing we got going on, starting from me up, me and Rod [Rodney McLeod]. We want nothing but the best for the guys, it don’t matter if you’re coming in here trying to take my...
    Getty Darius Slay with the Eagles in camp. Darius Slay has never been too proud to compliment the guys he has to lock down week in and week out. So when the Philadelphia Eagles cornerback was asked to name the best wide receiver in football, he didn’t hesitate: “Davante Adams.” The Green Bay Packers stud was named first-team All-Pro after catching a league-high 18 touchdowns. He finished the 2020 campaign with 1,374 receiving yards on 115 receptions in 14 regular-season games. Adams, a four-time Pro Bowler, bombed on Slay in Week 13 after making 10 catches for 121 yards and two touchdowns. Slay ranked Adams number one — taking note of his quarterback, Aaron Rodgers — and put Keenan Allen and Amari Copper in the conversation. “He is for sure the best receiver in the league,” Slay said of Adams on the Pat McAfee Show. “With Aaron throwing him the ball, it makes him even tougher. He can do it all, you know, he’s not one of the fastest guys but on film, he looks fast. Good release...
    Getty Darius Slay makes a gesture in a Giants game. The one-on-one matchup between Darius Slay and DK Metcalf got chippy last week from the outset. Slay was flagged for unnecessary roughness in the first quarter following an extra shove following a scrum. Words were exchanged. Now the Philadelphia Eagles top cornerback has been fined. According to NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero, Slay was fined $10,500 for the in-game fight with included plenty of trash-talking back and forth. Metcalf ultimately got the best of the matchup, racking up 10 catches for a career-high 177 yards. After the game, the three-time Pro Bowl cornerback took ownership for a rare lackluster performance. The Seattle Seahawks won the contest 23-17 as Metcalf torched the Eagles’ secondary on multiple 50/50 balls down the field. “I would say this is by far the worst game I have ever played in the league,” Slay told reporters after the game, via NBC Sports Philadelphia. “I truly lost every 50/50 ball. I was probably O-for. I have never been that, but...
    Getty Darius Slay with the Eagles in camp. Darius Slay left Detroit on not-so-good terms, particularly due to his strained relationship with Lions head coach Matt Patricia. So it was only fitting that the Eagles shutdown cornerback would have something to say following Patricia’s unceremonious dismissal. Slay has been thriving in Philadephia — arguably a lone bright spot — and playfully poked fun at the situation. The former Lions cornerback first posted the open-for-interpretation “eye emoji” when the news first broke of Patricia’s firing in Detroit. Predictably, after friends and teammates tagged him on Twitter, Slay let his true feelings be known. The two had a tumultuous tenure together in Detroit, culminating with Patricia calling Slay out in a team meeting for not being an “elite cornerback” despite earning All-Pro honors after recording eight interceptions in the 2017 season.

    Getty Avonte Maddox is expected to be a key contributor on the Eagles' defense. Everyone was waiting for the Eagles receivers to race. Maybe it should have been the cornerbacks. When Philadelphia traded for Darius Slay, the team knew exactly what they were getting. A shutdown cornerback, with quick feet and steely eyes, plus a confident swagger. Slay — never call him Darius — is also quite the trash talker in the locker room and he loves reminding his teammates that he’s the quickest in the room. “He always goes, yeah, you like number three in the room, number two in the room, with quick feet … but you’ll get there,” said fellow starting cornerback Avonte Maddox. “We always teasing each other about who got quicker feet. We always push each other and make each other better.” Maddox was laughing as he spoke because Slay’s influence has made him a noticeably better player, in all aspects of the game. He’s learned how important eye placement is to avoid getting beaten on double moves. The two have worked extensively...

Slay takes nice satisfaction within the quantity of swagger oozing out of his 6-foot, 190-pound body, a trait that’s on show with every aggressive giggle and each told-you-so finger wag. The latter was one thing he began doing as a rookie again in 2013 and it advanced right into a cross between an ode to Dikembe Mutombo in addition to his personal childhood idol, Kobe Bryant. Regardless of the purpose, the 29-year-old isn’t about to cease. That swag is vital and Slay has tons of it, Deion Sanders ranges. “I obtained loads of swag. I used to be at all times taught to come back on the market with swag,” Slay mentioned. “Positively DBs, we obtained the toughest place on the market on the sphere. And the quickest method to lose the quickest confidence so you bought to have it,...
    Getty Darius Slay celebrates a big play in 2017. There are many reasons why Darius Slay is arguably the game’s best cornerback. This one might be the best one.

    Getty Eagles WR DeSean Jackson hit virtually 22 miles per hour, in line with Subsequent Gen Stats. It was just one rep — and the primary rep for Darius Slay in eight months.

Jackson, who underwent core-muscle surgical procedure final yr, could be seen lining up in opposition to Slay on the 40-yard line and sprinting previous the Eagles cornerback into the tip zone. Jackson will get Slay by about 5 yards in a video shared by former NFL receiver Chad Johnson. Slay responded with “sit back” on Twitter and T.J. Lang — Slay’s former teammate in Detroit — provided that Jackson possessed 4.6 pace. Johnson and Slay carried the dialog into the afternoon and ended it with a mutual understanding.

    Getty Darius Slay reacts after an interception. Darius Slay told everyone he was going to bring a “new energy” to the Eagles. Well, the receivers just got their first taste of that passion. Slay, the three-time Pro Bowl cornerback, came to Philadelphia to solve their lingering woes in the secondary. The unit desperately needed a shot of adrenaline, someone with a noticeable swagger to impart wisdom and build confidence. Slay has already proven he is the right man for the job. “I bring a new type of energy to their team, something they knew they missed and something they knew they needed,” Slay told reporters. “I’m looking forward to being here … y’all accepted me like a brother and I appreciate the organization for believing in me.” The man known as “Big Play Slay” was captured talking trash on Tuesday night to the Eagles receivers. It was all in good fun as the former Lions cornerback was baited into it by Greg Ward Jr. Either way, the vibe around the team is clearly different (for the better) with...
