Giants Agree To 4-Year Deal With WR Golden Tate

Giants Agree To 4-Year Deal With WR Golden Tate

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. The targets, receptions, and yards were all the second-highest totals in his young four-year career, and the scoring output was actually a career high for him. The veteran finished with just 74 receptions for 795 yards and four touchdowns in 15 games.

The Giants weren't going to find another Odell Beckham on free agency or the trade market.

Let's be 100 percent real here, the Giants should be in full-on tank mode after trading Beckham. Tate will probably catch a decent number of passes in 2019, but will he actually make the team better? They got Jabril Peppers, a New Jersey native from the Browns in the Beckham trade. Although his short stint in Philadelphia was a disappointment, Tate has routinely been one of fantasy's most dependable wide receivers, and especially so in contrast to a typically much lower ADP.

Now, at least Eli and the Giants offense will be able to spread the field and have multiple options.

Tate is a fine receiver as a third option.

He's definitely worth what he's been paid and is only 30 years old. Hopefully, he'll still be able to in the coming years for the Giants.

The New York Giants split their final eight games this past season after a 1-7 start.
