6 Possible Golden Tate Trade Destinations

The NFL trade deadline is right around the corner, which means the rumor mill is churning once again. Golden Tate has been a name that's been thrown around recently, and with so many teams in need of a top WR option, Tate has been more of a trade target now than ever. 


Reports say that the Lions' asking price for Tate is at least a mid-round pick and if he were dealt, there would be a big uptick in production for Kenny Golladay and Marvin Jones.


With all of this in mind, here are six possible landing spots for Tate prior to Tuesday's deadline.

6. New England Patriots

The New England Patriots have more than enough receiving options, but are rumored to still be in the market for another wideout. Tate would do wonders for a passing offense that already has Josh Gordon, Julian Edelman and Rob Gronkowski. Plus, he would have barely any attention on him, meaning it would give him a chance to put up gaudy Seattle-like numbers once again.

The Panthers have some weapons for Cam Newton, but nobody like Tate. He would perfectly compliment Greg Olsen on the opposite side of him in the slot -- or paired together. That could also open up the outside for Devin Funchess to get more jump ball situations. 

4. New York Jets

The New York Jets have tried their hand at adding a top wide receiver and it simply hasn't worked out. Robbie Anderson is nothing more than a deep threat, Jermaine Kearse is inconsistent, Quincy Enunwa is hurt, and Terrelle Pryor is gone. Sam Darnold needs a top target, if he's going to develop properly, and Tate can be that player to make sure things go as planned.

3. Washington Redskins

The Washington Redskins are a first-place team, but they don't have a first-place offense. Paul Richardson has been their best wide receiver and he still hasn't cracked 20 catches. Alex Smith doesn't throw the ball to wideouts a ton, but maybe that's because he hasn't had a receiver quite like Tate to throw to.

2. Philadelphia Eagles

The Philadelphia Eagles need one more wideout. Just one more. Nelson Agholor is the perfect slot receiver and Alshon Jeffery has been great when healthy. If Tate could join this duo and push Agholor to the slot full time, it would go a long way to push the Eagles back into the NFC playoff picture.

1. Houston Texans

The Houston Texans have talent at wideout, but not a ton of that talent is healthy. Will Fuller is out for the year with a torn ACL and Keke Coutee is still dealing with a hamstring issue. Tate is a deep threat, but he could put up huge numbers and help take the Texans to the next level if they trade for him.
