Eagles releasing Pro Bowl CB Darius Slay after three seasons

The news report states that the Philadelphia Eagles are planning to release their cornerback Darius Slay, as reported by NFL Network insiders Ian Rapoport and Mike Garafolo. The team intends to designate Slay as a post-June 1 release, which will save them $17.5 million in cap space in 2023, but they will have to pay $8.6 million in dead money this year. Garafolo has also reported that the team will have over $13 million in dead money on their cap in 2024 due to the release.

Darius Slay was acquired by the Eagles in 2020 in a trade with the Detroit Lions and was given a three-year, $50.05 million contract extension. He was set to enter the final year of his contract and earn $17 million in base salary, but the team could not come to an agreement with him on a potential extension. As a result, the Eagles granted him permission to seek a trade, but no team was willing to pay for him, leading to his eventual release.

Slay had a productive three seasons in Philadelphia, earning two Pro Bowl selections and making seven interceptions and 166 tackles. He is now a free agent and is expected to be one of the top cornerbacks available when the new league year opens.

The Eagles have also lost several other starters this offseason, including Javon Hargrave, T.J. Edwards, Kyzir White, and Marcus Epps, who have all signed with other teams. Free agents C.J. Gardner-Johnson and Fletcher Cox remain unsigned by the team. The Eagles have also re-signed cornerback James Bradberry.
