JUST IN: Detroit Lions WR Golden Tate hops on Twitter, responds to trade rumor

On Monday night, Ian Rapoport tweeted out that the New England Patriots could be interested in trading for Detroit Lions wide receiver.


Well, one person who thinks that report is a load of garbage is…


Tate took to Twitter not too long after Rapoport’s tweet to comment on the trade rumor.

“What you talking about Willis?”

The Lions receiver also spoke to the Detroit Free Press on Monday about the trade rumors.

“I don’t think so,” Tate told the Free Press on Monday. “I feel like I’m a huge part of this organization and this offense especially, so hopefully that’s not the case. But again, I do understand it’s a business and if it happens then, you know, depends on where they send me.”

Apparently, Tate does not think there is much truth to that rumor. It would not be the first time Ian Rapoport took a swing and missed.


Detroit Lions DL Ricky Jean Francois calls out teammates following loss to Seahawks

The Detroit Lions should be embarrassed after their abysmal performance during Sunday’s 28-14 loss at home to the Seattle Seahawks. After all, the Lions were dominated in all three phases of the game as the Seahawks were clearly the more prepared team and the team that wanted the win the most.

Following the game, Lions defensive lineman Ricky Jean Francois spoke to the media and he was clearly not thrilled as he called out his teammates.

Quotes via Kyle Meinke:

“We didn’t focus on nothing, we couldn’t stop the run, and we let the Seattle offense control the game. We killed ourselves in penalties, we didn’t connect with their plays and we didn’t focus at all. We were just out there playing.”

“I just want everybody to lock back in. Lock in for these next 10 weeks, just lock in. Leave everything else alone outside of this building. I know you love your family, but tell them you will see them in February. Just lock in and do your job.”
