Golden Tate Agrees To Four-Year, $37.5M Deal With Giants

Golden Tate Agrees To Four-Year, $37.5M Deal With Giants

He didn't break the bank in free agency, but he was able to find himself a long-term deal with guarantees.

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

Although we're barely a full day into the 2019 NFL league year, the free agent signing period, for all intents and purposes, has been going strong since Monday.

According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, the nine-year veteran has agreed to a four-year deal with the Giants worth $37.5 million - $23 million of it guaranteed. That was before receivers started raising the bar for contracts. However, they've also swung a trade with Philadelphia for DE Michael Bennett, a move that was officially announced by the team late Thursday morning. He posted all of his best seasons in Detroit, racking up 90 catches each of his four full years.

Sources confirmed that New England's offer was for roughly $30 million over four years, which is in the ballpark of the Titans' four-year, $36 million deal. He felt like more of a complementary piece for the Eagles' offense, but did make his presence known with a game-winning touchdown reception in the team's NFC divisional round victory over the Chicago Bears.

The Giants' top receiver in the Beckham void is Sterling Shepard, whose best production comes from the slot. It's a position they could still look to address in the draft.
