He may be 33-years-old by the time the 2021 NFL regular season rolls around but Golden Tate is just what the doctor ordered for a Detroit Lions team that needs some depth at the wide receiver position.
As you know, the Lions current wide receiver corps, with Tyrell Williams, Breshad Perriman, and rookie Amon-Ra St. Brown, who replace Kenny Golladay, Marvin Jones Jr., and Danny Amendola from a year ago, is one of the worst units in football (at least on paper) and they could use a veteran like Tate.
Not only does Tate still have a little gas left in his tank on the field but I believe he can be even more valuable in the locker room for a guy like St. Brown, who some have compared to Tate for how he plays.
Unless Lions GM Brad Holmes plans on rolling with what he has, which is very possible, I would not be surprised at all if he adds Tate to the mix on a 1-year deal.
What do you think?
