New Eagles cornerback Darius Slay wants the pressure on him

New Philadelphia Eagles cornerback Darius Slay welcomes the opportunity to cover the opponent’s best receiver.

“I love the challenge,” Slay said in a conference call Thursday. “I kind of ask for it a lot because the fact that I want the game on me, and I want to help win the game, and if the best route to go about it is me traveling with a guy, then I’ll do it. If the coach sees otherwise, if he says left or right, I’ll want to do whatever to help the team win.”

The Eagles traded a third-round pick (No. 85 overall) and a fifth-round pick (No. 166) to the Lions to get Slay two weeks ago. The move reunites Slay with defensive coordinator Jim Schwartz, who was Detroit’s head coach when Slay was selected with the No. 36 overall pick in the 2013 NFL draft.
