Eagles reportedly grant Slay permission to seek a trade

The Eagles have granted Darius Slay’s request to seek a trade according to a published report as the two sides try to find common ground regarding Slay’s contract.T

ESPN’s Dianna Russini, quoting unnamed sources, tweeted Friday morning that the Eagles have granted Slay’s agent, Drew Rosenhaus, permission to seek a trade but added that the Eagles hope to resolve the issue and keep Slay in an Eagles uniform.

Soon after Russini’s tweet, NFL Network’s Albert Breer tweeted that Slay did not request a trade but that this is simply a part of negotiating.

The final year of Slay’s three-year, $50 million contract extension from when the Eagles acquired him from the Lions three years ago this week includes $17.5 million in salary and a $26.1 million cap figure.

Slay doesn’t want to go into the final year of his deal without future security, and the Eagles would ideally like to lower Slay’s cap figure but without making too much of a commitment to a player who’s 32 and whose best days are probably behind him.

How realistic is a trade? According to OverTheCap, a trade before June 1 would give the Eagles $22 million in dead money while clearing only $3.7 million in cap space.
