Free-agent wide receiver Golden Tate spent roughly four and a half seasons playing alongside quarterback Matthew Stafford while with the Detroit Lions but was traded in the fall of 2018. Tate spent the last two campaigns with the New York Giants and was unsurprisingly released in March, and he told SiriusXM NFL Radio he wouldn't mind a reunion with his former signal-caller.
"I would love to go back home to Tennessee," Tate explained, per Josh Alper of Pro Football Talk. "Indy, over with Carson Wentz. Obviously, the L.A. Rams would be fantastic with Stafford. I had my best years with Stafford. I really like the entire NFC West, to be honest."
Tate tallied only 35 receptions for 388 yards and two touchdowns during the 2020 season, and he may find that he has to sign a one-year "prove it" deal with a club such as the Rams if he wishes to play for a presumed contender this fall. He and Stafford have established chemistry, and the veteran who turns 33 years old in August was right in saying he produced his best overall numbers catching passes from the new Rams starter.
