      Don't be so picky, I had to re read it before I saw the goof, but we all make mistakes. and correcting others if one.

    He actually kept kis word about taking a pay cut to stay with the team, Tate on the other hand who said he wanted to do what he could to stay jumped to a cellar team the first chance he got for the difference of about a mill a year (if I remember right the Hawks offer was about 5 mill and the Lions was about 6 mill)

    Good Bye Tate! Thank you Zach, someone has their priorities in the right place. I can understand a player bolting for the right price, but there are always trade offs. A cellar team like the Lions or a another Super Bowl contender like the Hawks? Take your pick!
