When the Detroit Lions open up mandatory minicamp on Tuesday, don't expect Darius Slay to be there.

The cornerback said on Instagram Live on Monday that he will not be attending, per the Detroit Free Press.

Asked if he would show up for minicamp, Slay responded, "I don't know. I ain't going. ... Hey, man, I'm chilling, man."

Slay, 28, has two seasons left on a four-year extension signed with the Lions in 2016. The All-Pro cornerback is set to make over $13 million in 2019 and $10.5 million in 2020, per Spotrac.

The corner has already not participated in voluntary OTAs, forfeiting a $250,000 bonus in doing so. If Slay misses all three days of manadatory minicamp, the corner could be fined a maximum of $88,650, per the Free Press.

Defensive tackle Damon Harrison, who skipped OTAs alongside Slay, is also a candidate to skip mandatory minicamp in favor of a new deal.

We'll see on Tuesday whether Slay is serious about sitting out.
