Lions notes: Golden Tate celebrates Veterans Day with a coat drive

Today's notes looks at Golden Tate's charitable organization, a small transaction from the Lions, and a few bad offensive stats.

  • Given that today is Veterans Day, let's take a moment to celebrate Golden Tate's charity organization, Golden Future Foundation. Tate's charity focuses on providing support to American heroes who have served their country. This year, he held a coat drive and collected roughly 2,000 coats for the veteran community. For more information on how you can help through Tate's charity organization, visit his website.
  • Just how bad is the Detroit Lions' running game?
  • Speaking of bad offensive stats, both of the Lions' starting offensive tackles are on the wrong side of this statistic:
  • The Lions made a small transaction on Tuesday. Marion Grice was released from the team's practice squad and was replaced by offensive tackle Tyrus Thompson. Thompson was drafted in the sixth round this year by the Minnesota Vikings.
  • The Kellen Moore era in Dallas is over: Moore was on the Cowboys' 53-man roster, but had not been active on gameday in the past four weeks. He is still eligible to return to the Cowboys' practice squad.
