The New York Giants have decided to part ways with the 11-year veteran receiver, Golden Tate after two up and down seasons with the club. Tate spent the last two seasons dealing with a handful of injuries and a suspension that never really allowed him to get in a groove.
Tate was brought into the building two years ago with the intention of providing then-rookie quarterback Daniel Jones with a veteran wide receiver he could rely on to make the tough plays. Tate is best known for his time with the Detroit Lions in which he had his four best seasons by a long shot.
Looking back at Tate’s time with Giants
While in Detroit we saw Tate totaled 372 catches for 4,224 yards and 19 touchdowns. That high-end production sadly never made its way to East Rutherford, New Jersey. While playing for the Giants Tate only managed 84 catches with 1,064 yards and eight touchdowns. Not eye-popping stats but still solid numbers for a slot wide receiver who only appeared in 23 games with 14 starts in two seasons.
The Giants have a number of team needs they need to address this off-season if they want to compete with the big boys. Luckily for the Giants, they play in the NFC East which is the worst division in the NFL currently. Making a few key additions, getting Saquon Barkley back, and hoping Daniel Jones takes that next step forward could have the Giants in the playoffs in 2021/22.
In this article, we will take a look at the possible Golden Tate replacements in the upcoming 2021 NFL Draft.
