ALLEN PARK, Mich. -- Darius Slay is going to be late Tuesday night. He knows it. He understands it. He doesn't want it to happen.

Not with Beyoncé in town at his Sunday home, Ford Field.

"I'm gonna be a little late, but I can’t miss 'The Formation,' you know what I'm saying," Slay said. "So if I'm gonna catch 'The Formation', I gotta catch 'The Formation' at the beginning, when she come in, because I know she gonna spot me.

"I'm gonna be looking sexy for her."

Slay said a lot of the Lions players should take their wives or significant others because, well, it's Beyoncé and it'd "be a good treat for the ladies." It'd be a good treat for Slay, too, who is a clear Beyoncé fan.

But what happens if her husband, Jay Z, spots Beyoncé looking at Slay? Well, Slay will immediately back off. Slay believes Jay Z is that powerful and wants nothing to do with that power.

"Who doesn't like Beyoncé? Man, who doesn't," Slay said. "I'm just waiting for her to get on her knee and marry me. Hov sees this interview and next thing you know, the whole Detroit Lions be gone. He gonna own the team."

While many of the Lions players' their wives like Beyoncé, at least one person within the organization is not going to be at Ford Field on Tuesday night. That'd be the head coach, Jim Caldwell.

"No, that's a little bit out of my element," Caldwell said. "I do have some family members that will be there, but I won't be one of them."
