Lions general manager Bob Quinn has been a busy man since taking the reigns of the team in January.
Today, he met with agent Drew Rosenhaus – who represents both cornerback Darius Slay and linebacker Stephen Tulloch – at the NFL owners meetings.
Slay, who’s contract is up after next season, has been vocal about wanting an extension with the Lions. He has quickly emerged as a top corner in the NFL, and was even rated as the second best corner in the league according to ProFootballFocus. If he continues to trend up, he could really cash in on either an extension or a free agent contract in 2017.
Rosenhaus has opened the floor for an extension with the Lions, but any negotiations regarding Slay are still considered to be preliminary, and no deal is considered “close”.
Tulloch, who is still on the roster after being told he would not be brought back for the 2016 season, already earned a $500,000 roster bonus five days ago. Quinn has not taken any questions regarding Tulloch’s status, but he is expected to to have a session with the media at some point during the owners meetings.
