Tom Pelissero is reporting that the Detroit Lions have been listening to teams that are inquiring about wide receiver Golden Tate. Pelissero says the Lions would have to be “blown away” to move the 30-year old receiver. He then goes on to say that they would be “blown away” by a 4th round pick.

The only issue with Tate is that he is in a contract year. If the Titans were going to acquire him they would have to sign him to a contract extension or he could possibly just be a 9 game rental. Tate is still very productive. On the year he has 44 catches for 517 yards and 3 touchdowns.

If the Titans are serious about making a run this season, there is no reason they shouldn’t offer the Lions a 4th round pick for Tate. He would be a huge upgrade over everything they have behind Corey Davis, and has obviously been far more productive in his career than Davis has been.
