Newly acquired Eagles cornerback Darius Slay says he’ll be wearing No. 24 with his new team – as a tribute to Philly-area native Kobe Bryant.

In an Instagram video posted over the weekend, Slay said he’s “going Kobe mode” and wearing 24 in honor of”one of my favorite players”.

Slay was acquired from the Lions last week for 3rd and 5th round picks, and was promptly given a 3-year, $50 million contract extension.
