The Philadelphia Eagles have extended the contract of their cornerback Darius Slay, contrary to earlier reports that he was going to be released.
Slay was initially informed of his potential release amidst trade talks and contract negotiations, but the Eagles ultimately kept him on board.
Last night, Slay agreed to a two-year contract extension worth $42 million, with $23 million guaranteed.
This deal will keep him with the Eagles until 2025.
The Eagles have been working to retain key defensive players, including Fletcher Cox, Brandon Graham, and James Bradberry, as they prepare for a new season under the leadership of Jonathan Gannon, who recently left to become the head coach for the Arizona Cardinals.
