Lions GM Martin Mayhew praised CB Darius Slay's improvement in his sophomore season.
"This is a guy who came in highly drafted, struggled some as a rookie, showed some flashes of what he could do, but didn’t do it all consistently," Mayhew said. "He took it upon himself to say, ‘hey, I’m going to be a better player than that’ and he found a way to get that done." After getting torched in limited playing time as a rookie, Slay played 1,039 snaps and graded out as a top-20 corner according to Pro Football Focus last season. With veteran Rashean Mathis likely returning for one more run, Detroit's secondary should continue to be a solid unit. Feb 28 - 8:57 AM
