Patriots reportedly showing interest in free-agent WR Golden Tate

Grading the Move Giants’ decision to sign Golden Tate makes little sense

He didn't break the bank in free agency, but he was able to find himself a long-term deal with guarantees.

Less than 48 hours after agreeing to trade away their star wide receiver, NY has reached an agreement on a four-year deal with former Eagles WR Golden Tate, his agents at CAA Football announced on Twitter Thursday evening. Furthermore, while the Giants needed a receiver, they did not need a slot receiver when their only decent receiver, Sterling Shepard, already operates primarily out of the slot.

Golden Tate is arguably the best receiver left in National Football League free agency.


Giants general manager Dave Gettleman made a mistake throwing money around last offseason and most of his few free-agent signings, especially running back Jonathan Stewart and offensive guard Patrick Omameh, made little or no impact on the team. He posted all of his best seasons in Detroit, racking up 90 catches each of his four full years. He acknowledged that he was underpaid and wanted to do something about it. It's a four-year, $37.5 million contract that includes $23 million guaranteed, per ESPN's Adam Schefter.

"One of the top receivers available right now". He fell of to 74 for 795 last season, when he split time with the Lions and the Eagles. It's a position they could still look to address in the draft.
