With the 2018 NFL Draft Thursday night one receiver will be hoping his team can make a Super Bowl run this upcoming season.
Golden Tate, wide receiver for Detroit Lions, attended this past season’s Super Bowl LII pregame party “Leather & Laces.” In attendance, he sported his Super Bowl XLVIII ring which he won as a Seattle Seahawk.
“I feel it was time to sport this guy,” Tate said in his one-on-one interview looking at his ring. “I don’t wear it very often but just to remind the people here this week that I am a champion. I have me one.”
While Tate was a spectator when Super Bowl LII was in Minneapolis, he hopes to be playing in Super Bowl LIII in Atlanta. Tate wants to feel the way he did when he won the last one the 2013 season and explained what it means to be a Super Bowl Champion.
“It’s such a blessing. Its a small fraternity of guys who have em’ so to be able to call myself a ‘Super Bowl champion’ is something very, very special,” Tate said. “I’m so hungry for it. I want another one so bad and we’re working for it every day.”
Lions missed the playoffs last season finishing 9-7 and is one of four teams to have never appeared in a Super Bowl.
