Tate – “I prefer what we have in Detroit”

The city of Seattle has to be abuzz today after former wide receiver Golden Tate took what will be a perceived shot at the Seahawks. Tate told Monday Morning Quarterback that he prefers what he has in Detroit then what he had in Seattle. In my opinion, it’s not really a surprise. He’s now the number two receiver in one of the leagues most pass happy offenses. I’m sure Hawks...

For the Seattle Seahawks, the biggest single loss was wide receiver and punt returner Golden Tate. You can argue (correctly) that the losses on the defensive line (Clinton McDonald, Chris Clemons, Red Bryant) will have a bigger impact collectively, but as far as...

VIDEO: Golden Tate shows flashes of his potential against Oakland Raiders

I’m starting to believe that Golden Tate has a great chance at making the Pro Bowl as a member of the Detroit Lions. Last season with Percy Harvin and Sidney Rice missing so much time due to injury Tate became the Seahawks’ number one receiver, and as a result he saw his fair share of double teams and extra defensive focus. Despite that Tate finished the year with 898 receiving...

Tate The Detroit Lions start training camp on July 28 and there are a few positions battles to keep an eye on.

Golden Tate comes to Detroit with something to prove

Golden Tate comes in to this season with a chip on his shoulder. Tate should be happy, he just won a super bowl and at 25 years old, he just signed a $31 million contract with the Detroit Lions. Apparently, after being a second round pick, a two year starter and the NFL’s top punt returner, he felt that the Seattle Seahawks insulted him with their offer. Detroit is tailor made...
