Slay for a third-round pick, seventh-round pick

This is the very basic that the Detriot Lions have made known that they are asking for. They are looking for a second or third-round pick and Slay’s $15 million. Now, that is a ton of money to use on a cornerback, but is he worth it?

The Saints don’t have a second-round pick so they would have to offer a third-round pick plus the $15 million. That might sound like a lot of money, but if they let Jenkins and his $10 million walk away.

A third-round pick is a lot to give away as well, but Slay has already proven himself and could sign a long term extension with the team. That would make Lattimore and Slay one of the best cornerback duos in the entire league.

Now, the downside to this offer, is that it is the bare minimum. The Detroit Lions will likely receiver multiple offers of this variety. They will need a little more incentive to trade away Slay so this next offer might be more enticing.
