Darius Slay did not hold back.

On Thursday, the cornerback was traded to the Philadelphia Eagles and on his way out, he unleashed on his now former head coach Matt Patricia, saying he has no “respect” for him:

Justin Rogers of The Detroit News says Slay stated he “didn’t respect Patricia as a person” even before the controversial decision to trade safety Quandre Diggs in the middle of last season.

The Detroit Lions acquired a 2020 3rd and 5th round pick in exchange for Slay, who signed a 3-year contract extension with his new team, the Philadelphia Eagles.
