Lions WR Golden Tate 'night and day' more comfortable in 2015

by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(6/1/15) Lions second-year wide receiver Golden Tate has stated that his familiarity and comfort level with the offense this offseason is "night and day" better than it was a year ago, per the team website. He added that his goal is to improve on the numbers he established last year.

That won't be easy. He had easily his best season in 2014 with 99 catches for 1,331 yards and four touchdowns to earn a Pro Bowl spot. A total of 58 of his receptions were for first downs.

Lions WR Golden Tate doesn't feel pressure due to loss of Suh

by Dave Peters | CBSSports.com
(3/30/15) Although Lions wide receiver Golden Tate feels the loss of Ndamukong Suh is a blow to the team, he doesn't believe it puts more pressure on the offense, reports ESPN. 

When asked specifically about the subject, Tate was clear about his thoughts.

"No, I don't think it adds any pressure," Tate said by phone Monday. "We just need to be who we are. We know that we have a lot of weapons all over the field. We just need to reach our potential each and every week.

"We just need to go out there and play fundamentally sound football and I have no doubt our defense is going to be really good again this year and we just got to do our jobs. There's no pressure on anyone but to be ourselves and to play good football."

Additionally, Tate recognizes that Suh was a game-changing player for the Lions, but he likes the addition of Haloti Ngata.

"Obviously, losing Suh is a big hit," Tate said. "I don't care what team you are, he's the guy that can change the game. Change an opposing offense's game plan. He affects the game so much. But with that being said, I'm thankful to have [had] the opportunity to play with him for a year and be a part of something special. But the show must go on.

"The guy we got, [Haloti] Ngata, is a heck of a player. I think it's a good pickup for us. I know he has a past with coach Caldwell so he knows the ins and outs of the system, probably. But we're ready to move forward. We can't live in the past and football season must still go on. We're preparing to have a great year and build from last year."

The 26-year-old stated that he plans on focusing on the intricacies of the offensive playbook heading into this season.

"One thing I really want to focus on is learning the playbook a little bit better," Tate said. "I felt like I knew it for the most part, but details, running the plays exactly how Joe Lombardi draws them up, could help us win more games and create more opportunities for myself and our team."

Tate finished his first season with the Lions catching 99 passes for 1,331 yards and four touchdowns.

Golden Tate might return more punts in 2015

by Larry Hartstein | Senior Analyst
(3/25/15) The Lions' Golden Tate was used strictly as a receiver during the regular season last year before returning a punt against the Cowboys in Detroit's playoff loss. Coach Jim Caldwell suggested Tate might get more opportunities as a punt returner in 2015.

"I suspect at some point in time he's going to play a role in that area for us," Caldwell told MLive.com.

Playing for Seattle in 2013, Tate had eight punt returns of at least 20 yards. Lions punt returner Jeremy Ross had just three such returns last season, and he fumbled four times.

Lions' Caldwell feels Tate can surpass Pro Bowl numbers in 2015

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(1/23/15) 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."

Lions wide receiver Golden Tate replacing Jeremy Maclin in Pro Bowl

by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(1/18/15) 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.
