Patriots reportedly showing interest in free-agent WR Golden Tate

The deal is for four years and worth $37.5 million, $23 million of which is fully guaranteed, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. With Beckham traded to the Cleveland Browns, Eli Manning now has a crew of Tate, Sterling Shepard, Evan Engram and, of course, Saquon Barkley, to spread the ball to in NY.

Golden Tate will return to Lincoln Financial Field in 2019.

Obviously, the New York Giants' offense was going to look a lot different this season minus the electrifying talents of wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr.

The Steelers are in the market for receivers after trading away Antonio Brown.

In his years with the Seattle Seahawks, Detroit Lions and Eagles, he rolled up 611 catches for 7,214 yards and 38 touchdowns. Hopefully, he'll still be able to in the coming years for the Giants.

Regardless of his performance previous year, Tate still represents a significant receiving threat that both the Patriots and the Steelers could find a way to utilize, particularly with their Hall of Fame quarterbacks.

Following reports that Big Blue will add Tate to the roster, the details of his four-year deal were reported as well.

He's a good player and he deserves to be paid like one, but the signing is still confusing. 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.
