Tracy Walker recruits Darius Slay to Lions
As you can see below, Walker is trying to recruit Slay back to the Lions.
“Cuz need to come back to the d. It's only right,” Walker tweeted.
Bottom Line: The Lions do need a cornerback
Whether or not trading for Slay is an option, there is no question about it that the Lions need a starting cornerback to bolster their defense. Prior to Matt Patricia ruining (literally) everything, Slay enjoyed being in Detroit, and the fans loved him. If he is truly available, it would not be an awful idea to see what it would cost to pry him from the Eagles.
