Davante Adams’ reaction to Eagles CB Darius Slay All-Pro snub will have Philadelphia fans drooling
The NFL All-Pro teams have been announced, and Philadelphia Eagles fans are not too happy with the results. Many fans felt that cornerback Darius Slay deserved an All-Pro selection, and for good reason. His lockdown play has helped the team make it back to the playoffs.
Yet despite Slay’s best efforts, the Eagles CB earned just one vote for the All-Pro squad. Darius Slay clearly thought this was a travesty, and so did Davante Adams, the Packers’ star receiver.

It’s undeniable that Adams has been one of the best receivers in the NFL all year. For him to give his flowers to Slay in this way is a huge sign of respect for the cornerback. Slay’s raw numbers aren’t as flashy as Trevon Diggs’ 11 interceptions. Watch an Eagles game, though, and you’ll see just how big of an impact he has on opposing receivers.
More importantly for Eagles fans, Davante Adams hyping up Darius Slay has them thinking about potential off-season moves. The Packers star receiver is entering unrestricted free agency after this season. There isn’t a lot of indication that Adams would leave Green Bay, but it’s still fun to speculate where he could go. Based on his tweet, it seems like he’s liking what he sees in Philly.
The Eagles have more to worry about than Adams’ next destination, though. They’ll be facing the defending champions Tampa Bay in the playoffs this week. The Buccaneers have a decimated receiving core without Chris Godwin and Antonio Brown. Slay should be looking at this game to prove that he deserves the All-Pro spot that he was snubbed from.
