Darius Slay came a long way in his seven years in Detroit.
He went from a second-round pick who struggled in his first season to one of the top cornerbacks in the NFL. And he became a fan favorite along the way, with his big personality and big plays.
"Since I got drafted to Detroit, the city has shown nothing but love & respect, imma really miss pulling up to all the high school games here in Detroit & showing y’all love," Slay wrote. "I can’t thank y’all enough. Big Play will always love the fans!"
It's fair to say the fans will always love him back.
