The Lions appear to have ended a standoff with two of their best players.
It's likely that extensions are in the works for Slay and Harrison. Their agent, Drew Rosenhaus, met with the Lions last week, and now their holdouts are over.
Clearly, some kind of agreement has been reached.
As for what kind of raises the Lions are ready to hand out, it remains to be seen. But both players deserve one.
Slay, who can make a strong case for being among the top five at his position, ranks 13th among cornerbacks with an average annual salary of $12 million. And Harrison, arguably the best player at his position, ranks 16th among defensive tackles at $9.25 million.
In 15 games last season, Slay recorded three picks and 17 passes defended. He's the only defensive back in football with at least 10 interceptions and 40 passes defended over the last two years.
The Lions have high hopes for this season, with the makings of a defense that could be elite. As preparations begin in earnest in camp, it's positive news for the team that Slay and Harrison will be there.
