Ever since rumors began circulating about intimate relations between Tate and Wilson's then-wife, Ashton Meem, the Detroit Lions wide receiver and his former quarterback haven't exactly appeared buddy-buddy.
Tate flatly denies the rumors, and in a recent curbside interview with TMZ, the wideout said he wishes Wilson would do the same.
After fielding a couple of softballs about the Super Bowl (he totally would've caught that slant route, guys!), Tate dug into the subject of his rocky relationship with Wilson.
"[The infidelity rumors] are a bunch of bulls--t, and it's sad that [Wilson] is letting this go on," Tate said.
Tate then motioned to his girlfriend, Elise Pollard. He said there's no way she would continue to be Wilson and Meem's best friend if the rumors were true.
"Ashton and Wilson's best friend is right here…[Meem] almost came to church with us tonight," Tate said. "They wouldn't be best friends if that ever happened, and I think it's sad that whoever started that should get a life."
The interview ended with Tate saying he and Wilson are still friends, and that he holds out hope that this non-troversy comes to an end.
It's good to hear that Tate and Wilson are still supposedly on speaking terms. The world doesn't need the Cold War/social media screamfest this rumor has spawned.
The real takeaway from all this, however, is that Pete Carroll, like, really should've ran the ball.
