PHILADELPHIA (AP) — The Philadelphia Eagles have acquired wide receiver Golden Tate from the Detroit Lions for a third-round draft pick next year.

Tate has 44 catches for 517 yards and three touchdowns this season. He joins Alshon Jeffery, Nelson Agholor and Jordan Matthews, giving Carson Wentz another target.

Tate wrote on Twitter: “It’s been real DETROIT! I’ll love ya forever. Philly Philly let’s get it!!”

The 30-year-old Tate averaged 93 catches, 1,056 yards receiving and five TDs the past four seasons in Detroit. He went to the Pro Bowl after the 2014 season. Tate spent his first four seasons with Seattle.

The defending Super Bowl champions Eagles are 4-4 and have a bye this week.

    What’s with the sports teams in Detroit? They traded the Red Wings away years ago, the Tigers in the last two years, and now the Lions trade away the guy who was one of the only receivers they had. Must be a professional sports death wish, and when they lose it’ll be deserved.

    What did he do to warrant a trade?Football teams are well known for covering up “incidents”.Maybe we’ll find out sometime.
