Patriots reportedly showing interest in free-agent WR Golden Tate

Sure, he's not as good as Tate right now, but he still has upside. And the high-volume pass-catcher is now a member of Big Blue after inking a deal with the New York Giants.

Tate fills a void the Giants had at the wide receiver position following their decision to trade star Odell Beckham Jr.to the Cleveland Browns ahead of the official start of free agency on Wednesday.

The Giants made a surprising move on Thursday, when they announced the signing of free-agent wide receiver Golden Tate.

While Tate will have his work cut out for him in NY, the team realistically had no choice but to nab the last remaining free agent wide receiver that could give them any kind of chance on offense going forward.

"My years are limited", Tate said at the time. After trading away Beckham, it certainly looked like the Giants wanted to rebuild.

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. "I need to go somewhere where they believe they can win now".

Golden Tate of the Detroit Lions makes a catch over Jonathan Jones of the New England Patriots during the first quarter at Ford Field. This seems like a unusual move for a team that's supposedly in rebuild-mode, and though I don't love the fit, I do love the player.
