Atlanta Falcons safety Dwight Lowery has a bone to pick with Detroit Lions WR Golden Tate. Lowery was placed on injured reserve last season when he was with the Jacksonville Jaguars. The reason? A block by Tate that gave Lowery a concussion.
So Lowery has made it clear that he is looking forward to meeting up with Tate this year.
“To me, that was more of a cheap shot,” Lowery explained. “I guess he has a reputation for that. But I know this: Football has a weird way of things happening. I’ll just put it that way. I don’t feel like I have to exact my revenge or anything like that. I know that we play them.
“Don’t get me wrong: I’m not going to go out of control if I see him on the field and he has the ball. Then I’d mess around and miss a tackle. And I’m also not going to do anything where the ball is running the other way and I see him and I go after him. But if I have an opportunity and he’s trying to crack me and the ball is coming my way, we’ll just see what happens.”
It sounds like Tate might need eyes in the back of his head when the Falcons play the Lions.
