Lions listening to trade offers for Golden Tate

Lions listening to trade offers for Golden Tate

The reporter asked how trading Golden Tate to the Eagles on Tuesday makes the team better, and instead of answering the question right away, Patricia told the reporter to sit up. The 30-year-old has caught 581 passes for 6,936 yards and 37 touchdowns in 129 career regular-season games. Tate had 416 catches for 4,741 yards in less than 4 and a half seasons in Detroit. He originally joined the League after signing with the Lions as an undrafted free agent out of San Diego State following the 2017 NFL Draft.

Tate tweeted: "It's been real DETROIT!"

He may be just a half-season rental for the Eagles, who are now a disappointing 4-4 and in second place in the NFC East behind Washington.

"We know this is an incredibly smart guy and an incredibly hard worker", Roseman said of Tate. We have a little bit of time to get him up to speed. Players develop relationships with teammates, fans and cities, so it's not always easy to show them the door when it's about that time.

Before this trade, the Lions (3-4) appeared to be in acquisition mode when they acquired defensive tackle Damon Harrison from the Giants last Wednesday.

A sort of wide receiver logjam had surfaced in Detroit prior to the trade.
