Darius Slay was one-half of the top pass defense in the league in 2022. He only allowed a passer rating of 83.9 against him. Quarterbacks only completed 58% of their passes.

Although Slay allowed 5 touchdowns on the season, the Eagles’ defense was able to have their way against opposing offense throughout the season.

Now that the Eagles have secured their cornerback duo. All eyes will turn to C.J. Gardner-Johnson who has been the focal point of this offseason for Philadelphia.
