Detroit Lions Boost Offense and Sign WR Golden Tate To A 5 Year Deal [Video]
Tate was the leading receiver for the Super Bowl Champion Seahawks last year, and is excited about his new opportunities in Detroit. He told ESPN:
“I feel like I’m going to get a lot of balls, the other receivers are going to get a lot of balls,” Tate said. “That’s exciting. Especially coming from a run-heavy offense where all the notoriety went to the defense, I’m super-excited about that opportunity, but I see myself being a great complement to Calvin and him being a great complement to myself.”
Tate is also a dangerous kick returner, and will help the Lions on special teams. The terms weren’t disclosed, but sources say that the 5 year deal is worth $31 Million.
