Lions wide receiver Golden Tate began training camp on the Physically Unable to Perform List, but as expected, he didn't stay there long. The Lions activated Tate, and he took part in his first practice with his new team Monday. Tate landed on the list after landing on his shoulder awkwardly during OTAs in May. FANTASY ANALYSIS: Tate's average draft position sits in the mid-to-late 30s among wide receivers. However, this is a very quick player who gained more than 900 yards and scored five times in the league's most conservative offense last season. Now he's in an offense that will throw it...

Lions WR Golden Tate taken off PUP list

Lions activate Golden Tate from PUP list

The Detroit Lions have activated wide receiver Golden Tate from the PUP list, meaning he is eligible to practice on Monday. Last week, the Detroit Lions put wide receivers Golden Tate and TJ Jones and defensive end Ziggy Ansah on the PUP list. All three players ended up on the PUP list with shoulder injuries, although none of the ailments were believed to be long-term things. In Tate's case, his shoulder injury was indeed only a short-term issue. I say that because the Lions actually activated him from the PUP list on Monday morning. This means that he is eligible to practice when training...

Report: Detroit Lions Golden Tate, Ziggy Ansah place on PUP

Detroit Lions wide receiver Golden Tate and defensive end Ziggy Ansah have been placed on the Physically Unable to Perform list prior to training camp, according to Ian Rapoport, insider for the NFL Network. This is basically a precautionary move.  It does not mean the two will sit out the first six games of the season. To be eligible for the PUP list once the season starts, which would make players unavailable through the first six weeks, players must have been on PUP list prior to training camp. Ansah underwent shoulder surgery in February and should be close to a return. Tate...

Report: Golden Tate, Ziggy Ansah to open training camp on PUP list

According to a report, the Detroit Lions are going to put Golden Tate and Ziggy Ansah on the PUP list in what is likely just a precautionary move. The Detroit Lions are set to open training camp next Monday, and it appears that wide receiver Golden Tate and defensive end Ziggy Ansah might miss at least one practice. I say that because Ian Rapoport reports that Tate and Ansah are both going to open camp on the PUP list: #Lions Golden Tate and Ziggy Ansah will begin training camp on the PUP list, source says. — Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) July 23, 2014 Tate missed some time last month...

Lions notes: Golden Tate, Reggie Bush, more

Lions notes looks at Golden Tate, Reggie Bush and much more. Atlanta Falcons safety Dwight Lowery is still pretty upset with Detroit Lions wide receiver Golden Tate for a block that Tate delivered on him last year when both players were on other teams. Lowery suffered a season-ending concussion on the block, and Tate received a $21,000 fine for it. Lowery and Tate will square off again this year when the Lions play the Falcons in London on Oct. 26. Reggie Bush found some lions statues while in Barcelona. This is a real thing that you can buy: So, this exists....

Golden Tate compares Matthew Stafford and Russell Wilson

Detroit Lions wide receiver Golden Tate recently compared his new quarterback (Matthew Stafford) and his old quarterback (Russell Wilson). By departing the Seattle Seahawks for the Detroit Lions this offseason, wide receiver Golden Tate went from a run-first team to a pass-first team. In Detroit, he should get more chances to catch the ball, especially when you consider that defenses will be dedicating so much of their attention to Calvin Johnson. There are going to be a lot more opportunities for Tate to get his hands on the ball this year. Another big difference for Tate this year will be...

Golden Tate looking forward to chance for more touches

Golden Tate looking forward to chance for more touches

After leaving the Seattle Seahawks this offseason, wide receiver Golden Tate is excited for the "chance to catch more balls and make Pro Bowls" with the Detroit Lions. Considering he won a Super Bowl last season, I think it's safe to say that wide receiver Golden Tate had a successful final year with the Seattle Seahawks. He was a member of the NFL's best team, and he has a shiny new Super Bowl ring to show for it. One thing that Tate doesn't have to show for his time in Seattle is gaudy statistical production. That's because the Seahawks are not a pass-happy team. Their recipe for success...

Former Seattle Seahawks wide receiver Golden Tate knew the reigning Super Bowl champions employed an offense that didn’t cater toward his skill set. And while he enjoyed the best year of his career in 2013 — capped off by a ring in February — he wants even more. In an appearance on ESPN’s “First Take” […]
