ICYMI, PFF wrote an article ranking corners against every type of route. Slay got the nod for in and out routes.

Here's what they had to say in that:

"Slay was targeted 12 times on such routes in 2016, allowing four catches for 38 yards, and just 7 yards after the catch. 38 yards allowed was the second-lowest amount in the NFL. He had one interception and earned a QB rating against of 8.3, by far the lowest of any defender on these routes. His interception came while playing in a cover-2 zone. He had six targets while in man coverage, and four targets in a cover-4 zone. On his six man targets, he broke up three passes and allowed two catches, one for 9 yards and a first-down conversion. While in zone coverage, he allowed one first down on six attempts, with an interception and a pass breakup. His first-down completion in zone was versus the Colts when Andrew Luck took 3.4 seconds to throw the ball."

Top ranked corners on other routes:
Slant- AJ Bouye, Double Move- Brent Grimes, Go- Dre Kirkpatrick, Post/Corner- Xavier Rhodes, Hitches/Comebacks- Aqib Talib, Crossing- Marcus Peters

Really wouldn't mind adding Bouye across from Slay. Laughing

Wouldn't be the first time we grabbed some secondary help from Houston. Will probably get around what Jenkins got from New York last year, maybe more.
