Could Detroit Lions’ WR Golden Tate be headed to the New England Patriots?

With their loss to the Seattle Seahawks on Sunday, the Detroit Lions dropped to 3-4 on the season, which puts then a game out of first place in the NFC North.

As the NFL trade deadline approaches, it remains to be seen if the Lions will be buyers, sellers, or if they will just stick with that they have.

One Lions player who has been mentioned on and off when it comes to potential trade candidates is Golden Tate. Tate has been the Lions most consistent receiver on the team since the start of the 2014 season but he is also in the final year of his contract.

So the question is, are the Lions set on bringing Tate back for the 2019 season or would they rather try and trade him now to accumulate some draft capital?

One team that is reportedly interested in dealing for Tate, according to Ian Rapoport, is the New England Patriots.

Tom Pelissero notes that though Tate’s name is one that has come up as the trade deadline approaches, it would take a lot for the Lions to move him.

Nation, would you like to see the Lions trade Golden Tate or are you convinced they would be better keeping him and trying to extend his contract?
