At least he will be paid really well to do it. He should help the Giants win slightly more games than they would've won without him, but he's not going to transform them into a surprise playoff team.
The former Bucs wideout agreed to a four-year deal with Tennessee on Monday, but ESPN's Dianna Russini first reported that the Titans "were bidding against New England all day" for the slot receiver.
But landing a four-year deal with $23 million guaranteed on the wrong side of 30 is still a victory, too.

Tate's five-year, $31 million deal would go down as one of the best moves in Martin Mayhew's tenure as general manager. He was busy trading with the Browns and stocking up on draft picks. Entering his sixth National Football League season, his career includes previous stints with the Seattle Seahawks (2017), Houston Texans (2015-16) and the New York Jets (2014).
The Lions chose to find a more cost-effective slot receiver this offseason, signing Danny Amendola for a one-year deal worth at least $4.5 million. Tate has since played for the Lions and very briefly - after a midseason trade - for the Eagles.
Both Tate and Shepard have experience on the outside but will be playing outside of their strengths.
