The Detroit Lions were in the market for a receiver to compliment Calvin Johnson, and they got exactly what they were looking for in Golden Tate.

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.

Will this be the year that the Lions break through and make a playoff run?  Let us know in your comments below.
