Golden Tate aiming to exploit single coverage
by Larry Hartstein |

New Lions receiver Golden Tate said his production "can be way better" in Detroit than it was in Seattle, reports

"I was coming from, you gotta think I was in the toughest division with the 49ers, Rams and Cardinals, defensively, with a run-heavy offense and now I'm going to a pass-happy offense where I'm on the same team as the best player in the league, one of the best players in the league who is going to draw a lot of attention, a lot of double coverage, which is going to leave me with a lot of single coverage by a lot of No. 2 and No. 3 cornerbacks," Tate said, referring to Calvin Johnson.

"So mentally I think I should be able to excel and do very well here."

Tate stressed, however, that his main concern is winning and he won't care what his numbers are if the team goes deep in the playoffs.

Kyle Van Noy likely to miss regular-season opener
by R.J. White |

Lions linebacker Kyle Van Noy will see a specialist to get another look at his abdominal injury, the Detroit Free Press reports.

"He’s still under evaluation," Caldwell said Monday. "He’s still got to see the doctors, and the doctors are going to tell him. He’s going to a specialist to take a look at it, and we’ll make a determination, at that point in time, where he is."

Van Noy may require surgery for a sports hernia, and he isn't expected to be ready for the start of the regular season.

Nate Freese wins Lions' kicker battle
by R.J. White |

Lions kicker Nate Freese was announced as the team's starting kicker Monday by head coach Jim Caldwell, reports.

"Obviously it was a tough competition, it was a very, very difficult decision and Giorgio (Tavecchio) did a nice job," Caldwell said. "I think both guys took this thing on in a professional manner and Nate ended up edging him out. I think they are both very capable guys but as we look at all the factors, Nate was the best one for us at this time."

Freese was able to make a 55-yard field goal attempt off the dirt at Coliseum in the second preseason game, and it was a kick that helped the rookie kicker stand out in the competition.
