Golden Tate Drawing Interest From Patriots In Free Agency

"I remember just always seeing the Giants on TV growing up and always kind of picturing myself maybe playing there one of these days, and it's kind of truly awesome that that time has come and I'm excited about the opportunity to play for this team". In effect, that makes Tate the 14th-highest-paid wide receiver in total guaranteed money, or the 19th-highest-paid wide receiver in total value.

Most of the big-name wide receivers in 2019 free agency have already found new homes, but there are still a handful of quality talents on the market.

It was a puzzling move, as the Odell Beckham Jr. and Olivier Vernon trades made it appear as if the Giants were headed toward a full rebuild. He had 74 receptions between the two teams in 2018, and remains one of the NFL's top receivers in yards after the catch. He's also always been a reliable and productive fantasy asset. At 30, this is likely the last big contract Tate will command.

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. Throughout his career, Shepard has run 75% of his routes from the slot.

In 2017, Tate ranked as our seventh-highest-graded wide receiver (of 102 qualifying).

Tate was traded from Detroit to Philadelphia before the trade deadline in October for a third-round pick in the upcoming draft. 2018 is notable because, well, it's his most recent season.
