Earlier today, we talked about how Josh Adams' emergence was beneficial to the Philadelphia Eagles as the National Football League trade deadline approached, as they can now go after other positions of need.

The Detroit Lions head coach snapped at a reporter Wednesday over posture - of all things.

Let me first preface this Philadelphia Eagles hot take by saying that I am a fan of Golden Tate.

Obviously Aberdeen have taken that on and developed it further, playing in big games week after week". You can't keep saying in the next game we want that reaction.

The Detroit Lions traded wide receiver Golden Tate to the Philadelphia Eagles on Tuesday. He joins Alshon Jeffery, Nelson Agholor and Jordan Matthews, giving Carson Wentz another target. Perhaps the third-round pick - higher than they would have received in a compensatory pick for letting him walk as a free agent - is the biggest selling point. As we've mentioned several times on this website, Tate was one of only two receivers to catch 90 or more passes in each of the last four seasons.

Tate, 30, is entering a contract season, and yet reports surfaced on Monday that the Lions would have to be blown away in order to green-light a deal. He went to the Pro Bowl after the 2014 season.

Coming off a win against the Jacksonville Jaguars in London on Sunday, the Eagles, 4-4, are sitting in second place in the NFC East behind the Washington Redskins.
