Golden Tate announces he has been traded to Eagles

Golden Tate Lions

The Philadelphia Eagles have made a move at the trade deadline to bolster their offense, trading for veteran wide receiver Golden Tate.

Tate himself announced the move with a tweet on Tuesday.

According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, the Eagles have sent a third-round pick to the Detroit Lions in exchange for Tate.

Tate is still owed the remainder of the $7 million he is making this season, so he’s not exactly a bargain. That said, the 30-year-old is on pace to eclipse the 1,000-yard receiving mark for the third consecutive season and has been one of the most durable players in football, never missing a game with the Lions and sitting out just one since 2011.

Tate was also linked to a top team in the AFC, but he’ll be catching passes from Carson Wentz. He was not the only big-name wide receiver to be traded on Tuesday, as Demaryius Thomas was also dealt from the Denver Broncos to the Houston Texans.
