NFL Rumors: Eagles Star Sounds Off On Trade Rumors To Dallas Cowboys

There were rumors that the Philadelphia Eagles were considering cutting Pro Bowl cornerback Darius Slay, but they ultimately found a way to keep him through a new contractual agreement.

During this time, rumors circulated that the Eagles had reached out to the Dallas Cowboys about a potential trade involving Slay.

However, this was later found to be inaccurate, and Slay himself joked about the idea on social media, expressing doubt that the Eagles would trade him to a division rival.

Meanwhile, the Cowboys made a move to bolster their secondary by trading for veteran cornerback Stephon Gilmore, who had been with the Indianapolis Colts.

The five-time All-Pro is set to start opposite Trevon Diggs next season and is expected to be a force for the Cowboys in their rivalry games against the Eagles. The Cowboys gave up a fifth-round pick for Gilmore, who will earn $7.9 million next season.

As for Slay, he remains with the Eagles and is looking to build on his Pro Bowl performance from last season.

While he had been given permission to seek a trade, it seems that he will stay put for at least another season.

The Eagles will hope that Slay can continue to be a key piece of their defense as they aim to compete in the NFC East.
