Detroit Lions have needed a receiver to complement their premier wide-out Calvin Johnson for some time, and it seems now that they could have found their answer.
According to Adam Schefter of ESPN, Tate will meet with the Lions Tuesday night to see what the NFC North team have to offer.
The Lions have such a need for a wide-out that Tate may end up only visiting Detroit, with the team likely to offer the former Seahawks player an offer he can't refuse.
Tate made 64 catches for 898 yards and five touchdowns for the Seattle in 2013 and served as the team’s top receiver for most of the season.
In Detroit he wouldn't be the number one with Johnson in the building, which could work out well for quarterback Matthew Stafford and the Lions offense.
Tate, the 26th-ranked player on PFT’s Hot 100 list of free agents, said last week that he hadn’t heard too much from the Seahawks.
Whether he remains in Seattle remains to be seen, but Detroit are likely to test Tate with a good offer tonight.
