Lions have spoken to multiple teams about CB Darius Slay.

Recommended Posts

I'm very surprised the Lions want to deal him. If they want Okudah out of Ohio State, shouldn't they want to keep Slay around and have a great secondary? I wonder if the Colts were one of the teams who spoke to the Lions about him.

I can see them calling us because of all of our cap space.  He's going to need a new deal.  So I can see Ballard having a conversation.

Lions just don't want to pay Slay so they are trying to get pick(s) for him. 

Agree.  I can see Ballard doing that down the road as well.

Not giving up picks for a 29 yo CB. Then have to pay him on top of it.

Yep.... this is a job for Dan Snyder.

Slay even responded to Kenny. Kenny trying to recruit him. Ballard’s isn’t going to give up a high draft pick for him. Wonder what we would have to give up.

Oh My!  Could they know it's going down?   Pro Football Rumors mentioned the Colts as a potential destination along with the Broncos and Eagles.

If this somehow went down Wilson would be gone. Desir would become a good backup.  I noticed Wilson has been working with Moore at a DB camp. I doubt Kenny knows anything though. Probably just likes the guy.

He is retweeting stuff by Darius Butler too. But also Keenan Allen. I think it’s just other players liking how he plays. He and Kenny are both from southern Georgia so maybe they know each other.

Wilson could be part of a trade.  Or could Ballard be willing to trade Hooker?  Odum could take his spot.  

Not sure giving up a 24 yo for a 29 yo would be wise. Hooker has had a hard time developing when he keeps getting injured. I think they have to decide on whether to give him his fifth year option by May.

He hasn't really paned out.  I think he had injury issues in college too.  Not all 1st rd picks have their option picked up.  If we could get Slay it might be worth it to let the Lions take the risk.

I think we played better defense when hooker was injured and Odum played. Just not sure if it’s wise to give up yet. I could see them not picking up his option and making him really earn it this season.

I saw an article of 10 teams that would be a good fit and they listed the Texans.

 

What could they possibly trade?

Their 3rd rounder and a trip to the Houston Rodeo?

Sounds like Kenny wants him on board but I might be reading too much into this.

Lions want a #1 plus!! No way do we do that, even for our own #2 it would be too much.

The Colts don't need a CB, with Moore, Ya-Sin, Desir and Tell, the Colts have 4 good to great starting quality CBs.

 

If the Colts needed a CB, then Slay would be a good one but there are other areas more important to waste the limited resources to get another CB.

I’d take him on a 2 year deal at max. He’s older and CBs seem to fall off a cliff at 30 exactly.

Certainly would be an upgrade at the CB position provided that we could get him for a reasonable cost. I don’t think Ballard pulls the trigger here, but I wouldn’t be surprised if he had inquired.

    • How about a variation on the theme?  Draft Mims at 34 and Claypool at 44, with the intent to utilize Claypool as a move TE and offensive chess piece.  He'll be big enough after a weight room makeover to play the position; he apparently has an aggressive mentality in that he plays ST's and likes to block. And he can also be used as another WR in the red zone. That would be a curve ball vs. taking a known TE commodity in Kmet, which is certainly an option. But the receiving corps will have gotten a huge shot in the arm as far as size and talent with the additions of Mims and Claypool. 
    • Brissett has plenty of leadership and charisma on the field.  Everything I've seen about him from unbiased sources praises both of those attributes   Where he falls short is his ability to make throws.  Unfortunately that's just as critical as being a good field leader if nor more so.    Brisssett proved to have some big holes in his game that cost us down the stretch, that's a fact.  But don't drink the haterade.    Try to be impartial if you can.  If you won't acknowledge the good points of players you dislike, all you get is ignored.
    • The idea of any type of package for Brissett is laughable. He doesn’t have any of the skills that players who have packages built in for them do (speed, elusiveness, quickness, ability to catch, etc...)   Sounds like Reich saving face since they will likely have a guy due $12.5 million just holding a clip board. To this day, the one Ballard move that deserves the most criticism was how awful the Brissett contract is/was.
    • I see your point, but I think you can still go TE/OL in the 3rd, and the other in the 4th. RB you can get quality guys 5th or later, or UDFA. In a pass happy league WR is a priority. I'm actually not as down on our position group as a whole, I like the depth we have. But it lacks elite talent. So going 2 WR in the 2nd, gets you 2 potentially elite guys.
    • Just checking in to see if it is my time to pick (#155).    See you later. Stay safe.
