Eagles trade for Lions WR Golden Tate

Lions seeking mid-round pick for Golden Tate why the Eagles should make the call

The Philadelphia Eagles have added another explosive weapon to the offense, as the team announced a trade for Golden Tate of the Detroit Lions.

But it makes sense in that the Lions were not likely to keep Tate after this season, and the draft-pick return looks strong - especially after Detroit traded its original 2019 third-rounder to New England on draft weekend in April. I'll love ya forever.

Originally drafted late in the second round (60th overall) in the 2010 draft, Tate played four seasons for the Seahawks, averaging 41 receptions, 549 yards, and almost four touchdowns per year.

Yards after the catch since 2016, most in the National Football League, and a sign that despite being 30-years old he isn't showing any signs of slowing down.

Tate has 44 catches for 517 yards and three touchdowns this season.

Tate, 30, is in the midst of another solid season.

Past year at the trade deadline, the Eagles sent a fourth-round pick to the Miami Dolphins for running back Jay Ajayi, who led the Eagles in rushing yards in the playoffs on the way to the Super Bowl. His career totals with the Lions include 416 receptions, 4,741 yards and 22 touchdowns.
