Lions' Caldwell feels Tate can surpass Pro Bowl numbers in 2015
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Lions Pro Bowl receiver Golden Tate had a career year in 2014, posting 99 catches for 1,331 yards and four touchdowns in 16 games. While his numbers were impressive, coach Jim Caldwell feels Tate could be in for an even better campaign in 2015, per the Detroit Free Press.

"It doesn't take a whole year to determine what a guy can do from a schematic standpoint, but I do think that what happens is, guys get more comfortable within the system from quarterback to offensive line to running backs to all those involved, and you should see an uptick," Caldwell said Wednesday at the Senior Bowl. "If we're not playing better than we played this year then obviously all of us are going to be disappointed about that. So I would anticipate in every phase that we're going to be able to improve."

Caldwell said Tate's role probably won't change much, but he added the Lions should be more balanced when Tate and wide receiver Calvin Johnson are on the field at the same time. Johnson missed some time in 2014 due to an ankle injury.

"Golden had a superb year with 99 catches and just did an incredible job on third down for us," Caldwell said. "Was a great leader for us as well. Stepped into some very, very difficult situations and certainly gave us an opportunity."

by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com

Lions wide receiver Golden Tate will replace Eagles wide receiver Jeremy Maclin in the Pro Bowl, the team has announced. Maclin has decided to bow out of the game for personal reasons, according to Alex Marvez of Fox Sports.

Tate had 99 catches for 1,331 yards and four touchdowns in 2014. He was considered the fourth alternate for the game. It is also the first time in Lions' history two wide receivers will play in the Pro Bowl in the same season.

Golden Tate, Calvin Johnson play well in Lions' Wild Card loss
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Lions wide receiver Golden Tate led his team with six receptions for 89 yards and one touchdown in Sunday's 24-20 Wild Card loss to the Cowboys.

Tate was able to break free for a 51-yard touchdown early in the first quarter, catching a pass on a slant route as his defender fell down and running around another defender who took a bad angle to the receiver. He was held quiet in the second half, managing just two catches and nine yards after the break.

Wide receiver Calvin Johnson also performed well in the loss, catching five of his targets for 85 yards. His big play came on a 28-yard reception early in the third quarter to put his team within field-goal range, but the Lions were unable to score after going up 20-7 after the kick.

Lions' Tate fires back at Cowboys' Church: 'I don't know this guy'
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Lions wide receiver Golden Tate responded Thursday to comments from Cowboys safety Barry Church, who vowed revenge for a blindside hit Tate had on Cowboys linebacker Sean Lee in 2012 when Tate played for Seattle.

"Man, I don't know this guy," Tate said Thursday, per ESPN. "I just now heard of him yesterday from this incident. He's trying to get on the scene, I guess. We'll see."

Church said Wednesday that Tate's hit "was the dirtiest shot I've ever seen." The hit led to a $21,000 fine for Tate, who hit Lee in the chest and chin with the crown of his helmet.

"We were talking about it on the way back from Washington, me and Sean," Church said. "He was just like, 'Man, I wish I could play so bad in this game just to give a little payback for what he did in Seattle.'

"Obviously he can't play, but we're definitely going to keep our radar out for [Tate] because that was a dirty shot. We're looking forward to seeing him. We'll definitely get him back after that, but it will be within the rules, within the rules."

Cowboys S Church seeking 'payback' on Lions WR Tate
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

In the wake of the overturned suspension to Lions defensive lineman Ndamukong Suh, another perceived cheap shot by a current Detroit player has Cowboys safety Barry Church seeking revenge.

Church is vowing payback against receiver Golden Tate, who clobbered him on an illegal blindside block while the latter was playing for Seattle in September 2012.

"That was the dirtiest shot I've ever seen," Church told 105.3 The Fan in Dallas. "We were talking about it on the way back from Washington, me and [teammate Sean Lee]. He was just like, 'Man, I wish I could play so bad in this game just give a little payback for what he did in Seattle.'

"Obviously he can't play, but we're definitely going to keep our radar out for [Tate] because that was a dirty shot. We're looking forward to seeing him. We'll definitely get him back after that, but it will be within the rules."
