“It’s been real Philly!!! It’s all love,” she wrote.

Married since 2018, Jennifer has supported Slay throughout his NFL career, which began with the Lions in 2013.

“SUPERBOWL BOUND!!! My baby deserves it all!!!” Jennifer wrote on Instagram, to which Slay replied, “Yes ma’am … it’s go time.”

Despite grabbing an early lead over the Chiefs in Super Bowl 2023, the Eagles lost to Kansas City, 38-35.

In the days following the loss, Slay reflected on his 10th year in the league in a social media post.

“Yr10 in the books… one of my best seasons I’ve play. Appreciate my guys for making this captain life easy🙏🏾 #flyeaglesfly YR11 go be special,” he wrote in February.

Prior to his release, the Eagles permitted Slay’s agent, Drew Rosenhaus, to seek a trade.

NFL Network’s Mike Garafolo reported Wednesday that the Eagles “would designate Slay as a post-June 1 release.”
