Will the Detroit Lions make a trade ahead of the NFL Trade Deadline today?

The Lions have been in the middle of multiple rumors as the Oct. 29 NFL Trade Deadline approaches. The team already traded away safety Quandre Diggs to Seattle last week.

On Sunday, ESPN's Adam Schefter reported teams were calling the Lions about cornerback Darius Slay:

On Monday night, Albert Breer reported the Lions are making Slay available:

"I'm told that the Lions are making Slay available on the market. Doesn't mean they move him, but it does mean they're open to it. Slay is under contract through next year and his 2020 financials (a total of $10.5 million) are very reasonable."

Yahoo's Charles Robinson reported Sunday that the Lions were aggressively scouring the running back market following Kerryon Johnson's injury, with Dolphins' Kenyan Drake mentioned as a possible target.

UPDATE: Arizona has reached agreement in principle to trade a conditional 2020 draft pick to Miami for RB Kenyan Drake, league sources tell ESPN.

The NFL trade deadline is 4 p.m. ET on Tuesday, Oct. 29.
