The Eagles made a move before the trade deadline on Tuesday, dealing a 2019 third-round draft pick to the Detroit Lions for wide receiver Golden Tate. The veteran was the leading wide receiver on the Lions with 517 yards on 44 catches and three touchdowns in 2018. He also leads the league in yards after catch since he was drafted in 2010 and has not missed a game since 2012. His speed and playmaking ability provide Carson Wentz with another reliable weapon. Here are some reactions from around the league to the Eagles' trade.
