Patriots, Steelers have interest in Golden Tate in free agency

According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, the Giants are signing Golden Tate to a four-year, $37.5 million deal that includes $23 million guaranteed. The addition of Tate would also minimize the need to draft a wide receiver early and take some of the pressure off of James Washington early in the season. "Clearly, Tare cannot do what Beckham can and the Giants will attempt more of a spread-the-ball approach in their passing game, while leaning heavily on star second-year running back Saquon Barkley in the ground game".

The former second round draft pick has racked up 611 receptions for 7,214 yards and 38 touchdowns over his nine-year National Football League career. Tate has since played for the Lions and very briefly - after a midseason trade - for the Eagles. The veteran finished with just 74 receptions for 795 yards and four touchdowns in 15 games.

One potential conflict? Tate played about 75 percent of his snaps in the slot over the last two seasons.

No, the Giants look like they will be a really, really bad team again in 2019 and will continue to struggle to even sniff at the postseason until they can settle on a young, high upside corp to build around.

Over the past six seasons, (starting with 2018), Tate has ranked 28th, 17th, 24th, 12th, and 30th in fantasy points scored. That much is clear.

In the end, the Giants got better by signing Tate, Tate got paid, and the best receiver available is no longer a free agent.

The Giants' plan? Still not clear.
