Ex-Lions CB Darius Slay says Eagles players are treated ‘like grown men’

During his time with the Detroit Lions, Darius Slay always seemed to give 100% effort when he was on the field but as his days in the Motor City wound down, it seemed pretty clear he was not 100% happy with his situation.

Slay, who was traded to the Philadelphia Eagles during the offseason, made it very clear he felt disrespected by Lions head coach Matt Patricia on multiple occasions.

On Monday, Slay spoke to media members in Philly and he pointed out that Eagles’ players are treated “like grown men” by the organization and they have the “ability to be yourself.”

Now, Slay did not directly call out the Lions during his talk with reporters but it was very apparent he felt he did not fit in with the culture Patricia was/is trying to build in Detroit.

Slay also mentioned (again) how the Lions didn’t disguise coverages that much when he was shadowing a top receiver. “I got to open my brain up more” in the Eagles’ defense, he said.

Personally, I was (and still am) a HUGE fan of Darius Slay and though I wish things would have worked out in Detroit, I am happy that he is happy.
