Diggs and Slay were close friends in the secondary; playing on the Lions together since 2015.

The Detroit Lions traded defensive back Quandre Diggs and a 2021 seventh-round pick to the Seattle Seahawks for a 2020 fifth-round pick on Tuesday.

Diggs had been a starter for the Lions since 2017 at slot cornerback and safety.

Diggs was a captain and one of the most popular players in the locker room. Despite his play, it's still worth asking why the Lions chose to move Diggs and a seventh-round pick for a fifth-rounder from Seattle. He has started five games for Detroit this season, missing one game with a hamstring injury.

Several injured as stolen Oslo ambulance hits people
Inside the stolen ambulance , police found an Uzi submachine gun, a shotgun and what they said were "large amounts" of narcotics. A woman who was pushing the pram and the infants are being treated in hospital, as well as an elderly couple, officers said.

The Seahawks are reportedly adding help to their secondary in the form of safety Quandre Diggs. He tallied three interceptions each of the last two years and has 20 tackles in five games (five starts) this season.

It's an interesting move by Detroit when you consider the fact that Diggs signed a three-year deal with the team back in 2018. Johnson left Sunday's loss to Minnesota with a knee injury. Rookie second-round pick Marquise Blair impressed coach Pete Carroll on Sunday while making his first career start. He can play free safety and nickel and could be an option after free safety Tedric Thompson has struggled in coverage at times this season. He allowed a 50-yard reception over his head on the the Ravens' opening drive Sunday, drawing the ire of Carroll. Immediately after the move was announced, Slay blasted Detroit for trading Diggs to the Seahawks.

"Well, we made a big mistake early". "I hate that we gave them that because there's no way that should've happened". "That's just distasteful", Carroll said Monday.
