If you are a fan of the Detroit Lions, you are probably well aware that the NFL trade deadline is today at 4 p.m. You are probably also well aware that the biggest name being mentioned as far as trade rumors go is Lions receiver, Golden Tate.
On Monday night, rumors started circulating that the New England Patriots are one of the teams interested in dealing for Tate.
After catching wind of the rumor, Tate hopped on Twitter and responded with a hilarious tweet.
What you talking about Willis?

Now, as we are less than four hours from the deadline, Tate has posted another tweet that has many Lions fans frightened that he could be traded.

For the record, I do not feel there is any way that Tate is traded before the deadline. The question is, will the Lions bring him back for the 2019 season?
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.
“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.”
