No Golden Tate For Patriots: Lions Trade Receiver To Eagles

Earlier today, we talked about how Josh Adams' emergence was beneficial to the Philadelphia Eagles as the National Football League trade deadline approached, as they can now go after other positions of need.

Patricia was asked a question by ESPN's Michael Rothstein about how the Golden Tate trade makes the Lions any better. Now with Alshon Jeffery, Nelson Agholor, Tate and a pair of risky tight ends in Zach Ertz and Dallas Goedert, they have a pretty good group of pass catchers to offset an occasionally sluggish run game. A Detroit reporter was in the middle of asking the Lions coach about the Golden Tate trade when Patricia interrupted and asked him to stop slouching... "Philly Philly let's get it!"

The Eagles must really be looking to improve their passing game, as they'll have to pay Tate the rest of the $7 million he's due to make this season.


Tate, 30, has caught 44 passes for 517 yards and three touchdowns so far this season. He was chosen for the Pro Bowl in 2014, his first season with Detroit.

The trade gives the Eagles a much needed receiving weapon as they enter the second hald of the National Football League season with a 4-4 record.
