Although his short stint in Philadelphia was a disappointment, Tate has routinely been one of fantasy's most dependable wide receivers, and especially so in contrast to a typically much lower ADP.
According to National Football League reporter Ian Rapoport, the Pittsburgh Steelers might not be done in free agency yet.
Free-agent wide receiver Golden Tate has agreed to a contract with the New York Giants, per his sports representation, CAA Sports. And the high-volume pass-catcher is now a member of Big Blue after inking a deal with the New York Giants.
In the aftermath of their decision to trade away superstar receiver Odell Beckham, the Giants have insisted that they have a plan without telling us what that plan is.
In five of the past six seasons, among all wide receivers with at least 50 targets, Tate has ranked top-four in yards after contact per reception.
When the regular season begins, Tate will be 31, seven years younger than his new team's starting quarterback. Tate, 30, got a lengthy deal for a player at his age, but the Giants needed to make the move despite it costing them a pretty penny.

How is Golden Tate feeling about getting paid?
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.
