Darius Slay brings a presence to the Eagles defense and as the veteran cornerback prepares to open his ninth NFL season, he’s looking to set an early tone down in Atlanta.

During his Wednesday media session, Slay told Jeff Skversky of 6ABC, that he wants to “set the tone” on Sunday and get Nick Sirianni his first NFL win.

Slay’s statement says a lot about how Eagles players view the rookie head coach who has preached accountability and discipline from day one.

Sunday’s game also provides a huge early-season matchup with Falcons star wide receiver Calvin Ridley.
