"I absolutely loved the Golden Tate signing. He is a player that will make an instant impact in Detroit. Getting a possession receiver that runs great routes is something the Lions have been looking for, and should also help take pressure off of Calvin Johnson. He is also another good option to return punts, but I will throw that idea out for now with the emergence of Jeremy Ross last season, but coaches shouldn’t forget about Tate as a returner. This was a fantastic signing for Detroit overall."
