Philadelphia Eagles: Golden Tate to the Giants is a best-case scenerio

New England Patriots wide receiver Chris Hogan works out prior to an NFL football game against the New York Giants Thursday Aug. 30 2018 in East Rutherford

According to the New York Daily News' Pat Leonard, the Patriots receiver's representatives have spoken to the Giants, who traded their star receiver earlier this week.

Beckham's departure leaves 124 targets (across 12 games) unaccounted for in this offense, which is good, but the Giants are likely to be a much more run-heavy team in 2019, and one of Tate or Sterling Shepard is likely to be playing out of position.

It's a four-year, $37.5 million contract that includes $23 million guaranteed, per ESPN's Adam Schefter. On paper, that's not a bad deal for a player of Tate's pedigree, as he's now the 17th highest paid wide receiver in the league, but after watching him play last season, should he really be in line for a bigger payday than DeSean Jackson?


Chris Hogan could be part of the Giants' plan to replace Odell Beckham Jr.'s production.

Tate's production dropped dramatically a year ago after a midseason trade from the Lions to the Eagles, where he averaged just 9.2 yards per reception and 34.2 yards per game. I highly doubt it.

Tate was the best receiver still available to sign in free agency. After trading away Beckham, it certainly looked like the Giants wanted to rebuild. This year's draft class is full of defensive prospects, which is the direction Russini believes the Giants will go with their first pick. I want to go to a team that has a chance. But instead of wearing the Philadelphia Eagles' midnight green, he'll be wearing the blue of the New York Giants.
