Reports: Darius Slay stays with Eagles, signs contract extension

Despite previous reports that the Philadelphia Eagles were set to release him, cornerback Darius Slay agreed to a $42 million contract extension that includes $23 million fully guaranteed, multiple reports said Thursday.Slay had been scheduled to enter the last year of a three-year, $50 million deal signed in March 2020. With the new two-year extension, Slay is reportedly now under contract with the Eagles through 2025.The agreement comes in the wake of mixed messages regarding Slay’s future with the Eagles. The Eagles had failed in attempts to find a trade partner for Slay and last week had given Slay’s agent Drew Rosenhaus permission to seek a trade while still negotiating a possible extension.Late Wednesday night, Slay hinted at the future when he tweeted, “Back like I never left!!! Run it back,” followed by an eagle emoji.According to the Philadelphia Inquirer, Slay’s new contract doesn’t contain any new money agreements, which should help clear up cap space for the Eagles.
