New York Giants add WR Golden Tate and DE Markus Golden

16 March 2019

This paints the picture of Tate as one of the league's best slot wide receivers, or one of the league's best wide receivers once the ball is in his hands - and I think that's correct.

Tate will help the Giants in the post Odell Beckham Jr. era.

Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver Golden Tate (19) warms up before action against the Dallas Cowboys at Lincoln Financial Field.

The Giants made a surprising move on Thursday, when they announced the signing of free-agent wide receiver Golden Tate.

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

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

Locking up Tate until he's 36-years old flies directly in the face of that philosophy, and even if they were to release him after two years when his guaranteed money will be all but spent the move is no less questionable.

The Niners were rumored to be in the mix for Beckham before the Giants shipped him to the Cleveland Browns for safety Jabrill Peppers, the 17th overall selection, and a third-round pick.

Trading Beckham put the Giants in a likely rebuilding mode. "I need to go somewhere where they believe they can win now". "I don't have time to go someone who's trying to rebuild".

Of course, it's one thing to say you were a fan of the team you just signed with; it's another to prove it.
