Former Seattle Seahawks receiver Golden Tate never was one to hold his tongue about anything. He's a smart guy, though, so he doesn't just speak his truth without facts involved. Tate appeared on KJ Wright's podcast, KJ All Day, and talked about anything you might want him to discuss, including the rumors surrounding Tate and Russell Wilson's ex-wife.

Wright's co-host, Gee Scott (and if you haven't heard Scott on Seattle radio, he is an amazingly good listen on his own), pin-point asks Tate about what happened, if anything, between Tate and Russell Wilson's ex-wife, Ashton Meem. As Tate says and many sites have speculated, there was was a rumor that Tate wasn't going to be re-signed by the Seahawks after the 2013 season because he alegedly had an affair with Meem. Tate says the rumors were "completely" not true, but he didn't stop there.

Tate says that he and Wilson had conversations about Wilson's "future" and the rumor "picked up steam." But Tate implies that Wilson didn't do nearly enough to squelch the rumors, even though the two were friends. Wright followed up on Tate's comment by saying he didn't want to go "viral" with say anything outright negative about Wilson, but Wright said Wilson has a "lot of making up to do" and lots of apologies to make.

Of course, this continues the narrative that Russell Wilson always saw himself as above his teammates, even those who may have been his "friends." Or at least Wilson wants to control the narrative on his own brand. Maybe he is the modern-day Steve Garvey.

Of course, Wright and Gee Scott ask Golden Tate about tons of other things as well. Top Pot donuts? Yep. Tate talks about it. Same with the "fail Mary" game when the Seahawks beat the Green Bay Packers on Monday Night Football in 2012.

Is it just me or does anyone else get irritated by people referencing what happened at the end of the game as "fail Mary"? It implies the Seahawks cheated somehow to win. They didn't. Golden Tate caught the ball. Period.
