Looks like the current Eagles players are pretty happy about the newest addition to the roster.
Just a few hours before the trade deadline, the team announced it traded for Lions WR Golden Tate in exchange for a third-round pick (see story).
The players took to social media to welcome the new guy.

And a couple of tweets from the man himself, who looks like he's embracing Philly culture already.

However, some current Lions players didn't seem quite as happy about the trade, expressing their disappointment on Twitter.
