Matt Patricia scolds reporter for his posture

Matt Patricia scolds reporter for his posture

A Detroit reporter was in the middle of asking the Lions coach about the Golden Tate trade when Patricia interrupted and asked him to stop slouching...

Tate's contract situation - and his impending free agency - had loomed over this entire season, with reports surfacing as far back as training camp that other teams were calling about his availability.

He also leads the league in yards after catch since he was drafted in 2010 and has not missed a game since 2012.

It was later announced that the Lions would be receiving a third-round pick in return.

Eagles quarterback Carson Wentz and Tate tweeted their excitement about the trade.

The trade gives the Eagles a much needed receiving weapon as they enter the second hald of the National Football League season with a 4-4 record. This isn't a situation where we're getting a guy on Tuesday and he's got to come in and play on Sunday. "During the season, the playbook gets a little smaller because it's game-plan-specific, so I think that will help him, too". Players develop relationships with teammates, fans and cities, so it's not always easy to show them the door when it's about that time. "I talked to Golden at length yesterday". Teams have until 4 p.m. Tuesday to complete trades.
