Golden Tate Reportedly Down to Patriots and Steelers in Free Agency

The Eagles re-signed defensive end Brandon Graham to a three-year deal prior to the veteran hitting the free agent market.

But when it was all said and done, veteran Golden Tate opted to remain in the NFC East - this after a half of a season with the Philadelphia Eagles.

Help is on the way, New York Giants fans.

Prior to last season Tate had two consecutive 1,000-yard receiving seasons.

Tate finished the 2018 season with 74 receptions for 795 yards and four touchdowns split between stints with the Eagles and the Detroit Lions.

The New York Giants have reportedly signed WR Golden Tate to a four-year deal worth $37.5 million, which includes $23 million in guarantees.

In the aftermath of their decision to trade away superstar receiver Odell Beckham, the Giants have insisted that they have a plan without telling us what that plan is.

Tate really came into his own as a high-volume wideout during his days with the Detroit Lions.

Before the start of free agency, I broke down Humphries' film from last season to explain what made him such a great fit in the Patriots' offense.

The Lions discussed an extension with him past year but had numbers lower than he was looking for. Is this really a team in rebuilding mode? 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.
