Rich Shertenlieb: Can you confirm a story we’ve been told during the first meeting he had with the Lions, he basically said that he was the greatest and that you guys hadn’t won anything. Is that true?
Darius Slay: That’s pretty much true.
Rich Shertenlieb: So what happened?
Darius Slay: It was just weird how he came in like he was bigger and better than all of us. He was acting like we asked to be there. We do get selected. That was the crazy part about him.
Rich Shertenlieb: And he had a problem with you working out with great players, correct?
Darius Slay: Yeah. Big problem.
Rich Shertenlieb: So what did he say?
Darius Slay: He basically just said, ‘You are not in that category yet.’ At that time, I only had one Pro Bowl but now I’m at five, so I want to know how he feels about that now.
Rich Shertenlieb: Are you shocked that the Patriots didn’t do well with Matt Patricia?
Darius Slay: I don’t wish bad on him, but as a man, me and him just don’t get along. He’s a smart coach, he knows his Xs and Os, but the disrespect is not what I’m with.
