Winner: Darius Slay

Not only did Slay get out of Detroit, but he is now the highest-paid cornerback in the NFL. The Philadelphia Eagles gave Slay a three-year, $50 million extension after trading a third and fifth-round pick for the 29-year old cornerback.

Wisniewski, 30, became the third player to leave the Chiefs in free agency, joining defensive lineman Emmanuel Ogbah (Dolphins) and defensive back Kendall Fuller (Redskins).
