The Giants Vastly Overpaid Golden Tate, When They Should Be Tanking

Golden Tate

Golden Tate has had a quiet start to free agency, but it appears that things are starting to heat up for the NFL's "YAC" king. As hype as Rod Tidwell.

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 video went viral, prompting Tate to reach out to Dwayne Johnson on Twitter for advice on his next career move. This past season with both teams, he caught 74 passes for 795 yards and four touchdowns. On paper, that's not a bad deal for a player of Tate's pedigree, as he's now the 17th highest paid wide receiver in the league, but after watching him play last season, should he really be in line for a bigger payday than DeSean Jackson?

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.

No, he's not the answer to filling the cleats of Odell Beckham Jr.

Titans trade for QB Ryan Tannehill
According to a release from Tannehill's agency, the former Dolphins starter signed a one-year deal with the Titans. His career completion percentage is 62.8 percent, and his career passer rating is 87.0.

Tate is a fine receiver as a third option.

Let's be 100 percent real here, the Giants should be in full-on tank mode after trading Beckham.

"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.

Simply put, the only real victor in this deal is the Philadelphia Eagles. The Detroit Lions ended up dealing him to the Philadelphia Eagles instead. I want to go to a team that has a chance.
