Eagles Acquire WR Golden Tate For Third Round Pick

The Detroit Lions traded wide receiver Golden Tate to the Philadelphia Eagles on Tuesday. More

We here at Lions Wire wish the best of Luck to Golden Tate.

Immediately after the trade to Philly was announced, Tate took to twitter with a Rocky gif and a message for both his former and current cities: "It's been real DETROIT!". I'll love ya forever.

The Lions sit in last place in the NFC North standings, and the team showed it's already beginning to look toward next season by trading away wide receiver Golden Tate. In seven games with Detroit this season, Tate has 44 catches for 517 yards and three touchdowns.




The Lions also reportedly restructured the contract of Marvin Jones, which has started some speculation that Bob Quinn isn't done making trades. The Eagles need a big-time playmaker, and Tate has averaged 93 catches for 1,056 yards and four touchdowns over the past four seasons. He was chosen for the Pro Bowl in 2014, his first season with 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.
