Detroit Lions cornerback Darius Slay skipped minicamp last week, exposing himself. The cornerback could stand up to the bill that is nice further by avoiding training camp.
The corner that was veteran combined The Pride Podcast recently and wouldn’t hint when camp opens in late July.
“Will I be there?” Slay said, through the Detroit Free Press. “We’ll see. Time will tell.”

He is subject to fines of $88,650 for your 3 times by bypassing minicamp. A could be incurred by eschewing training camp, as these penalties call for penalties of $40,000 per day missed. Fines are at the discretion of the team.
Slay has two years left on his contract with base salaries of $12.55 million in 2019, and $10 million in 2020. The two-time Pro Bowler has seen he is leapt by a bevy of corners since signing his four-year, $48 million contract extension in 2016 in the pay department. Slay sits 13th in average salary among corners. The 28-year-old failed to update his contract negotiations.
“I ain’t getting into that,” he said. “I’m going to let my broker and the company kind of handle all that. I am just going to be chill about it and see how everything plays out.”
With two years left on his contract, the Lions might be hesitant to acquiesce to some demands, thereby setting a precedent (fellow teammate Damon”Snacks” Harrison also held out of minicamp).
Now, the Lions haven’t triumphed at if they are amicable to reworking those bargains — possibly subsequent to the Julio Jones-model of sweetening the pot this year with notions of an expansion next offseason. Detroit coach Matt Patricia insists he focused on the players showing up to work outs.
“I think I’ve addressed this problem,” Patricia said. “I think I’m really going to concentrate on the men which are here, as far as that is concerned, and talk about them. Whatever communication we have are kept confidential between the participant and us. So when we get back for training camp, we expect everybody to be where they’re supposed to be if they’re there. We deal with this, and we proceed from there. But do not really look into that too far.”
The Lions are away for another six months or so, until training camps open in late July. If Slay will last to hold out we’ll see then.
