Golden Tate has hilarious reaction to Giants signing him

While the Patriots would seem like the more logical destination for a veteran wide receiver like Tate, the Steelers have kept themselves in play for the 30 year old. 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.

In his years with the Seattle Seahawks, Detroit Lions and Eagles, he rolled up 611 catches for 7,214 yards and 38 touchdowns. That's good, but it's concerning that Tate's two-worst-graded seasons (since his rookie year) have come in 2018 and 2016.

When the regular season begins, Tate will be 31, seven years younger than his new team's starting quarterback.

Tate was the best receiver still available to sign in free agency.

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

"The Giants take a $16 salary cap hit in dead money with the trade of Beckham but gained $5 million in cap relief in 2019 after taking Beckham's $16.75 million base salary off the books", writes Schwartz.

Tate, who is fully guaranteed $23 million, caught 74 passes for 795 yards and four touchdowns for the Lions and Eagles last season.

Simply put, the only real victor in this deal is the Philadelphia Eagles. "I want to win now." in an interview with Geoff Mosher, Golden Tate's decision to sign with the New York Giants is beyond confusing. "I think they are going to draft a quarterback".
