SiriusXM Radio: Golden Tate says Seattle “will always have a place in my heart”

Seahawks fans may have moved on from the  loss of receiver Golden Tate, who signed as a free agent with the Detroit Lions last month.

But for anyone who wants some more insight into Tate’s thoughts on leaving Seattle and signing with the Lions, here you go, as he was a guest today on SiriusXM NFL Radio.

Most of the conversation is about how Tate thinks he will fit in with the Lions.

But Tate also addresses his thoughts on not being able to stay with the Seahawks as they try to defend a Super Bowl title in 2014.

Tate said it is “definitely disappointing” he couldn’t stay with the Seahawks but that “at the same time, I understand this is business. … in a perfect world we would have kept every single free agent. But with the cap numbers I guess they couldn’t afford it and that’s what happens. … I had to do what was best for my career and my family and that’s what I did.”

Tate said that Seattle “will always have a place in my heart. But that being said, I had to make a judgement call. And I don’t think I made the wrong call.”
