Detroit Lions WR Golden Tate (undisclosed) will start training camp on the Physically Unable to Perform List, according to a league source.
Huddle Up: Tate should have time to carve out his wingman role opposite Calvin Johnson, assuming his undisclosed injury doesn't keep him on the sidelines for an extended period.

Detroit Lions WR Golden Tate said he expects to catch more passes in 2014 than he did last season because opponents will be focusing on trying to cover WR Calvin Johnson. 'I think if I can stay healthy ... it's going to be fun,' Tate said. 'I have a chance to catch a ton more balls. I'm going to see a lot of single coverage. I'm probably going to see a lot of No. 2 and No. 3 cornerbacks because everyone's going to be on No. 81.'
Huddle Up: The Lions throw more in one game than Tate's former team threw in a month, so even if he's the second option for Matthew Stafford he'll see plenty of balls in Detroit this season.

Detroit Lions WR Golden Tate said he has learned about 70 to 80 percent of the offensive playbook so far. 'I think I understand the majority of the material. I think I understand the concepts. I'd say around 70, 80 percent,' Tate said. 'The last 30 will really be understanding how to run their routes and how it's supposed to be executed.'
Huddle Up: Tate will be trying to repeat Nate Burleson's 2010 & 2011 stat-line feats as he's been the only No. 2 wideout to top 40 catches in a season playing alongside Calvin Johnson over the past 6 years.

The New York Jets could pursue Seattle Seahawks impending free-agent WR Golden Tate this offseason, because general manager John Idzik is familiar with Tate from his time with the Seahawks.
Huddle Up: The Jets are searching far and wide for offensive playmaker help, and Tate will be an option if his pricetag falls out of the Seahawks' range. Fellow Seattle WR Sidney Rice could also be an option.

The Seattle Seahawks will try to re-sign impending free-agent WR Golden Tate if they have enough money to spend this offseason.
Huddle Up: Tate had a career-high 64 receptions for 898 yards and 5 TDs in leading the Seahawks, but Seattle most certainly isn't going to overpay for Tate given the other similarly talented wideouts on the roster.

Seattle Seahawks WR Golden Tate had 5 catches for 93 yards and 2 TDs on Monday, Oct. 28 in a 14-9 win over the St. Louis Rams.
Huddle Up: Tate's big grab was an 80-yard catch and scoring run in which he taunted St. Louis defenders while sprinting down the sideline. The taunts and the resulting unsportsmanlike penalty didn't garner Tate many points but his recent surge has translated into some fantasy points as he has notched 19 of his 32 catches and all 3 of his TD grabs over the past 3 games. Tate could be in line for even more work if fellow WR Sidney Rice's knee injury -- suffered in the second quarter Monday night -- proves serious.

Seattle Seahawks WR Golden Tate has been the most impressive player in training camp showing big-play ability.
Huddle Up: Tate has had the opportunity to shine with Percy Harvin out and Sidney Rice in Switzerland. He put up decent numbers in that offense a year ago and would be the prime candidate to fill Harvin's role while he is sidelined; there's definitely fantasy upside there.
