Detroit Lions’ WR Golden Tate included in ‘trade that makes sense’

For the past five seasons with the Detroit Lions, Golden Tate has emerged as one of the most consistent wide receivers in the NFL. He has had over 90 receptions in each of those seasons and he is on pace to eclipse 100 receptions in 2018. That being said, Tate, who is 30-years-old, is in the final year of his contract and Lions’ general manager Bob Quinn has a very important decision to make regarding the receiver’s future in Detroit. Embed from One option that Quinn may have available is to trade Tate to a contender in need of a wide receiver. On Thursday morning, ESPN released an...

3 Detroit Lions who could be traded before Halloween

After defeating the Green Bay Packers this past Sunday, the Detroit Lions are now within a game of the .500 mark and within striking distance in the NFC North. But there is one big problem. The Lions do not have a roster that is ready to contend for a Super Bowl and that is all that really matters. Sure, they have quality players in Matthew Stafford, Marvin Jones, Golden Tate, Kenny Golladay, Kerryon Johnson, and Darius Slay, but that is not enough. Moving forward, Lions general manager Bob Quinn has some very important decisions to make. One of those decisions may involve making a move prior...

Detroit Lions Week 5 report card: Big plays vs. Packers earn big grades

Detroit Lions Week 5 report card: Big plays vs. Packers earn big grades

The Lions weren’t consistently good on Sunday, but big moments earned high praise vs. Packers. The Detroit Lions defeated the Green Bay Packers 31-23 on Sunday, and it was a fairly solid effort all around. Here’s how the individual units graded out in Week 5. Quarterback: B+ I know statistically this wasn’t one of Matthew Stafford’s best games, but aside from one overthrow to Golden Tate deep and a couple of errant throws on screen plays that were likely to fail anyways, I thought he was extremely good on Sunday. Stafford was victimized by two penalties that erased huge plays. He...

That includes the team that plays down the road, the Detroit Lions.

It’s time for the Lions to trade Golden Tate

It’s time for the Lions to trade Golden Tate

The decision would not be easy, but the team must make the right choice. I love Golden Tate. If you are a Lions fan, you probably do too. Since coming to Detroit, the electric wide receiver has played in every game, scored 22 touchdowns, and has made defender after defender look completely silly. Tate’s effort against the Cowboys last Sunday was a perfect example of exactly what he can do with the ball in his hands. When Tate signed a five-year, $31 million contract with the Lions before the 2014 season, it had the potential to be a steal. Indeed, his $6.2 million average annual value...

PODcast recaps Lions-Cowboys, begs Detroit to pay Golden Tate

PODcast tries to focus on the good, when there’s a lot of bad around. The PODcast doesn’t like talking about losses, but we do the deed because some of you have decided that the vibrations of our vocal chords don’t cause you distress or dismay. We appreciate that, and it’s why we convene every week. This week, we have the unfortunate task of breaking down the Detroit Lions’ 24-26 loss to the Dallas Cowboys. It certainly wasn’t as bad as previous games, but watching Ezekiel Elliott destroy the Lions’ run defense was as pleasurable as it was surprising. However, we break it all...

Detroit Lions’ receiving trio sets NFL record

When Calvin Johnson left the Detroit Lions following the 2015 season, there was a question about whether or not Matthew Stafford would have enough weapons at his disposal. Now, three seasons later, the Lions have one of the best wide receiver trios (if not THE best) in the NFL with Golden Tate, Marvin Jones Jr., and Kenny Golladay. On Sunday, against the Dallas Cowboys, Tate, Jones Jr., and Golladay each had over 50 yards in the Lions 26-24 loss. That feat makes the Lions the only team in the NFL to have a trio of receivers eclipse the 50-yard mark in all four games this season. #Lions are...

JUST IN: Golden Tate stops to help out at car accident

Golden Tate is not only a great football player but he an even better person off of the field. The Detroit Lions wide receiver proved that once again on Tuesday morning when he stopped to help some people who were involved in an accident on Southfield Freeway. Not only is @ShowtimeTate a great receiver, but he’s a good Samaritan as well. Saw him helping people involved in an accident on Southfield Freeway this morning. He wasn’t involved, just stopped to help. — Tim Twentyman (@ttwentyman) October 2, 2018 Tate noted that everyone involved in the accident was ok, including the 3-year-old...
