Lions notes: Golden Tate, NFC North news, more

Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports

Lions notes looks at Golden Tate, various updates on other NFC North teams and much more.

  • This piece on Golden Tate from Pro Football Focus is pretty nice to read now that he's joined the Detroit Lions.

  • The Free Press has the story behind where Tate's first name came from.

  • Just as an FYI in case he does in fact sign with the Lions: James Ihedigbo's last name is pronounced ee-HEAD-ee-bo.

  • Jason La Canfora put together a good breakdown on why it's more important to look at the guaranteed money in contracts instead of the overall worth of them.

  • After being released by the Chicago Bears, defensive end Julius Peppers signed a three-year deal worth up to $30 million with the Green Bay Packers on Saturday.

  • On a related note, this is pretty interesting:
  • In other NFC North defensive end news, Jared Allen visited the Seattle Seahawks on Sunday.

  • Finally, Pro Football Talk has a recap of all the moves NFC North teams have made so far during free agency.
