While with the Detroit Lions, Golden Tate established himself as one of the best and most reliable wide receivers in the NFL.
But, all good things must come to an end and that’s exactly what happened when the Lions decided to trade Tate, who was in the final year of his contract, to the Philadelphia Eagles for a third round draft pick.
Now, Tate is about to officially hit free agency and the question is, where will he land for the 2019 season? Will he re-sign with the Eagles? What about a return to the Motor City?
Well, Tate recently joined the “Prostyle Podcast” and he was asked about what he thought about joining forces with the Super Bowl Champion New England Patriots.
Tate’s response made it very clear that he would love to join the Patriots.
”Man, I would love it,” Tate said, via NBC Boston. “I would love it. That organization, they’ve proven to be champions year in and year out. They work hard, for sure. But you know where you’re going to be at the end of the season. You’re going to be looking at not going to the playoffs, but you’re going to be looking at maybe a first-round bye, which is key.
“You gotta admire that organization. They do things right. They’ve been doing it for a long, long, long time. So, I’d definitely love to be a part of something like that and catch a few passes from ol’ Tommy Boy. Julian is a buddy of mine. I’m real good buddies with him and I’ve heard good things. Kyle Van Noy, who got traded from Detroit and has been there and has been balling out since, has said great things about the organization. I definitely would not mind going over there for sure.”
Nation, would you like to see Tate get a chance at winning a Super Bowl by signing with the Pats?
