Lions ‘exploring’ trades for CB Slay

INDIANAPOLIS — Lions cornerback Darius Slay is drawing interest in trade talks, but general manager Bob Quinn and head coach Matt Patricia haven’t given up hope they can keep him in Detroit.”Everything is on the table,” Quinn said Tuesday at the Indiana Convention Center on the first day of the NFL Scouting Combine.Slay, 29, is due $10 million in the final year of his contract in 2020. He could command a deal worth more than $15 million per season along with his relocation. He held out briefly last summer in hopes of driving talks toward a new deal.”We’ve had some conversations with other teams, but nothing to report right now,” Quinn said. “I think we’re very much in the information-gathering phase of this. Those conversations from here on out will be private between us, the teams and the representatives for Darius and Darius himself.”Patricia said trade talks are merely “exploring” and discussions with other teams do not equate to “an actively trying to trade thing.”
