The Detroit Lions finally added a legitimate No. 2 option to work off of Calvin Johnson when they signed free-agent WR Golden Tate during the offseason.
Tate, who caught 64 passes for 898 yards and 5 TDs last season with the Seahawks, said this offseason that he envisions himself working in a Lance Moore-type role as Lions OC Joe Lombardi installs his version of the New Orleans Saints offense. Moore's heaviest workloads with the Saints had him reeling in 79 passes in 2008 (16 games), 66 passes in '10 (16 games) and 65 passes in '12 (15 games).
