New Orleans Saints: 3 trade ideas for Lions’ Darius Slay
Darius Slay for Janoris Jenkins and a third-round pick.
Darius Slay is coming off of three consecutive Pro-Bowl appearances and one first-team All-Pro selection. He has more than made his worth known, and he is unhappy playing for one of the worst teams in football.
However, if the Saints could get the seventh-year cornerback for the right to restructure price then this would be ideal. Hopefully, in the long run, he would end up costing the New Orleans Saints less than what Jenkins would cost them.
I took away the seventh-round pick from the last trade because of the talent jump from Eli Apple to Janoris Jenkins. Slay is a year younger than Jenkins, and he is looking to sign a long-term contract with a contender making the Saints perfect trade partners.
Trading for Jenkins would allow a Lions team that’ll need another rebuilding season to have arguably the most cap room in a loaded 2021 offseason.
This could be a toss in the air for Jenkins and Slay which one will have a better end to their career, but Darius Slay is definitely a safe bet and would thrive in the defense Sean Payton has put together in New Orleans.
