Golden Tate's stay on the physically unable to perform list was a short one as the Detroit Lions announced the wide receiver has been cleared to return to the field, hours before the team's first training camp practice.
Tate, who injured his shoulder during an OTA practice earlier in the offseason, was placed on the PUP list as a precaution when he reported to camp on Tuesday.
The sure-handed Tate is coming off his best professional season, catching 64 passes for 898 yards and five touchdowns for the defending Super Bowl champion Seattle Seahawks. The hope is Tate can be a nice complement to Calvin Johnson. Tate's ranked 33rd among our WRs and we consider him a WR3 with upside, provided he can connect with QB Matthew Stafford.
