It is hard to know exactly where Slay is after last year’s zero pass rush. He was top 5 before last year. But age tends to catch up with CBs. I would love to see a two year plus a two year team option. He has been healthy enough to get a nice guarantee. But I would not accrue beyond two years so there is a clean cut off if need be.
The reason I go a 2+2 is that I think he can still have value late in the contract with nickle and dime coverages as he ages. I do not expect and I sure hope he is not our cb1 in 2 years. If so, he has held up miraculously well or we have neglected the position.
