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. Now going all in in an attempt to squeeze one final championship run out of an aging quarterback does have some merit, just ask Payton Manning, but his younger brother has looked like a shell of himself for seasons, even with a loaded collection of offensive weapons like Saquon Barkley, Odell Beckham, Sterling Shepard, and Evan Engram. That's good, but it's concerning that Tate's two-worst-graded seasons (since his rookie year) have come in 2018 and 2016. He split time with the Lions and Eagles in 2018 and finished with 74 receptions for 795 yards and four touchdowns. And if you combine his work with the Lions and Eagles this past year, those team's quarterbacks took aim at the nine-year wide receiver a combined 113 times. I highly doubt it.
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. This week, they traded Beckham, which suggests that they're looking to rebuild. This year's draft class is full of defensive prospects, which is the direction Russini believes the Giants will go with their first pick.
The New York Giants are seemingly not interested in winning anything in 2019. I want to go to a team that has a chance.
