You won’t believe what Detroit Lions WR Golden Tate said on Twitter last night

Right or not, Detroit Lions wide receiver Golden Tate has a reputation as being a bit of a ladies’ man. Maybe it’s because of the rumors about him and Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson’s ex-wife. Maybe it’s because when TMZ catches him out on the town he’s surrounded by gorgeous women.

Stafford combined for 19 touchdowns and 21 interceptions, shaky statistics at best for a young quarterback's first 13 games. Before missing 13 games in 2010, Stafford did show some...

Do the Seattle Seahawks regret letting the Detroit Lions get Golden Tate?

2015 NFL Draft Needs for the Detroit Lions: Wide Reciever

While it may seem like the Detroit Lions have more roster spots that need to be filled on defense, one thing needs to be kept in mind; The Lions offense was awful this past season, and their defense was great.
