Detroit Lions defensive coordinator Teryl Austin would like to see more consistency from CB Darius Slay in 2014. "I think we have some good young pieces," Austin said.

There were some times he didn't look very good and there were some times he looked outstanding." "Our goal is to try to get him to be consistent, to be a consistent player. That way, that talent will start to take over, but I think he's a guy that has the ability out there and we probably want to try to improve," Austin said. "But we want to improve in all areas."
