Golden Tate started the 2018 NFL season as a key member of the Detroit Lions and ended it as an underused receiver for the Philadelphia Eagles.
On Sunday, the Eagles were eliminated from the NFL Playoffs and there is a chance Tate may have played his final game for Philadelphia as he is slated to become a free agent.
So the question is, where will Tate play in 2019? Will the Eagles lock him up? Will Tate test the waters of free agency and go to the highest bidder? Will he return to the Lions, where he put up over 90 receptions in four consecutive seasons and was on pace to do so again this season before he was traded?
Only time will give us the answer to those questions but on Monday, Tate talked to reporters about his future in the NFL and he noted his “time is limited” and that he wants to go to a team that “has a chance.”

Nation, where do you think Tate will end up in 2019? Should the Lions attempt to bring him back?
Michigan State’s Mark Dantonio goes all-in with 2-7 off-suited hand
With the announcement of an unscheduled press conference with Mark Dantonio yesterday afternoon, the hearts of every Michigan State Football fan started to beat with anticipation. Thoughts were flying through Twitter, with eager hands rubbing together slowly. “He’s going to finally ax some of these clowns,” most thought. Then, at 4:19 PM, Graham Couch broke their hearts via Twitter:
…and the sounds of broken Spartan hearts was heard echoing across the country.
It was to Michigan State football fans what gasoline is to a forest fire. After a season that ended with the offense putting up six points in three out of four performances including an embarrassing 7-6 loss to Oregon in the Red Box Bowl to end the season, it was time to make bold changes. Spartan fans were clamoring for Coach Dantonio to show that fire and passion which has endeared him in the hearts of the Spartan faithful by taking the program back to the heights achieved in 2015 when they lost to Alabama in the College Football Playoff Semi-final. All of that hope and expectation over the last three weeks was gone. No major changes would be forthcoming. Heck, almost no changes happened period!
Instead, Mark Dantonio stepped up to the podium with a circuitous speech that seemed to be focused on delaying the inevitable reveal. He did, however, start the announcement calling the moves “the most significant change” to his coaching staff in 12 years. Really? In reality, he simply shuffled around the titles and responsibilities of the same five offensive coaches as outlined in the tweet above.
