The Detroit Lions inked now former Seattle Seahawks wide receiver Golden Tate to a fat five-year deal that will hopefully make him a star alongside Calvin Johnson. It’s not hard to imagine that both Johnson and his quarterback Matthew Stafford are happy to have Tate in town, but someone else is rather tickled by the move.
Matthew Stafford’s girlfriend Kelly Hall has been making waves lately, popping up on social media to either call out booing Lions fans or hit incredible basketball shots while showing up her boyfriend. She’s now let us know how she all feels about the Golden Tate signing and is apparently very excited to have a new friend to hang out with — Tate’s girlfriend Elise Pollard.
Since when did Detroit become the hotbed for young and attractive couples? Either way, it seems that the bond between Stafford and Tate has already begun, and while we can all stare at photos f their girlfriends in bikinis, this little Instagram shoutout actually means a lot more than you think.
Stafford has really only had one major connection on the Lions offense and that’s been with Calvin Johnson. Tate hasn’t even been officially introduced as a member of the Lions and it appears the chemistry between Stafford and his new receiver is being fused by their girlfriends.
Lions fans just need the team to be good, and they’ll likely be very happy to see the chemistry on offense already brewing behind-the-scenes.
Lions fans are probably pumped for other reasons as well.
