On the day the Lions agreed to trade cornerback Darius Slay to the Eagles, Slay made several candid comments about Detroit head coach Matt Patricia in a radio interview.
“Of course I wanted to stay (with the Lions) for a minute, but I already knew how me and Matt Patricia (were), it wouldn’t last long,” Slay told WJR Friday.
Slay explained while he and Patricia frequently disagreed, the relationship between the two actually improved after Patricia’s first season in Detroit.

Slay told WJR his Lions teammates knew his departure was coming because “they already know I feel with me and Matty P…we don’t see eye-to-eye.”
Host Mitch Albom asked Slay what his message to Patricia would be on his way out of Detroit if given the opportunity.
