PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — The Philadelphia Eagles acquired cornerback Darius Slay from the Detroit Lions for two draft picks. The Eagles posted the details of the trade on Twitter Thursday morning.
The Birds sent a third-round and fifth-round pick in the 2020 draft to the Lions in exchange for Slay.

The 29-year-old is a three-time Pro-Bowler and he’s also the man responsible for Carson Wentz’s first career interception back in 2016.
The Eagles reportedly reached an agreement with Slay on a three-year, $50 million extension, which includes $30 million guaranteed.
The Birds re-signed safety Rodney McLeod on a two-year deal and are bringing back cornerback/safety Jalen Mills on a one-year deal but it looks like he will be moving from cornerback to a hybrid position.
Mills is expected to play both cornerback and safety.
