Eagles acquire WR Golden Tate from Lions


The team announced Tuesday that they have acquired wideout Golden Tate from the Detroit Lions. "Philly Philly let's get it!"

The Lions also were hamstrung by the early nature of the trade deadline, to some extent. The 30-year-old Tate was the Lions' leading receiver this year with 44 grabs for 517 yards and three scores.

If Tate and the Lions had chose to part ways in the offseason, a move now certainly made some sense, especially with Detroit acquiring a third-round pick.

Tate averaged 93 catches, 1,056 yards receiving and five TDs the past four seasons in Detroit. He was chosen for the Pro Bowl in 2014, his first season with Detroit.

The Lions lost 28-14 to the Seattle Seahawks on Sunday, dropping their record to 3-4 on the season.

The former Super Bowl champ didn't think he'd be among the players dealt at the deadline.

Coming off a win against the Jacksonville Jaguars in London on Sunday, the Eagles, 4-4, are sitting in second place in the NFC East behind the Washington Redskins.
