Lions Ink CB Michael Jackson Off Cowboys’ Practice Squad

The Lions made a rather minor roster move on Wednesday, but one that will get a lot of attention based on the name of the player they signed.

That player is Michael Jackson, a cornerback who the team is taking away from the Dallas Cowboys practice squad.

Jackson was a fifth-round pick by the Cowboys this year and was on the practice squad after failing to make the team out of camp.

The Lions released running back Paul Perkins to make room for Jackson on the active roster. They also announced that defensive lineman Austin Bryant has been designated to return from injured reserve.

Report: Lions Asking Price Just too Much for Teams Interested in CB Darius Slay

There’s been plenty of rumors about the Lions looking or at least listening to offers for cornerback Darius Slay, a player that could bring them a decent return if they find the right trading partner.

It sounds though like a deal isn’t going to happen, as NFL Network’s Mike Garafolo says that now that the deadline is close to happening, the Lions asking price is just too high for many teams that would love to acquire Slay.

Here’s a tweet with the news about Slay:

Lions’ Darius Slay Speaks Out About the Surprise Trade of Quandre Diggs

Most of the Lions locker room had publicly taken an even-keeled approach to the team’s decision to trade starting safety Quandre Diggs this week, cornerback Darius Slay, Diggs’ closest friend on the team, had a more visceral reaction, questioning the decision, loyalty in the NFL and his long-term future in Detroit.

“(Crap), it basically say it don’t matter who you is,” Slay said. “No matter how much you put in, at the end of the day it’s a business so that’s how I just look at it. Nobody’s safe, in my opinion.

“Why wouldn’t it surprise me? Just told you he was an alternate Pro Bowler and our team captain. How would it not be surprising? That would be crazy.”

Diggs was traded to the Seattle Seahawks on Tuesday, along with a future seventh-round draft choice for the Seahawks fifth-round selection in 2020.

Slay, 28, a two-time Pro Bowler and one of the team’s best defensive players, said he didn’t have any conversations with coach Matt Patricia or general manager Bob Quinn before or after Diggs was traded.

“I ain’t talking to neither one of them about that,” Slay said. “That’s their problem. I’m working. That’s all I do. I work. It’s not no kind of relationship or nothing like that, just, I’m here. I work here. It’s my job. I got to do my job.”
