Former Eagle-Wide receiver Golden Tate has signed a $ 4 million US $ 37.5 million US $ 4-year deal with the New York Giants. Tate's social media posting in recent months has indicated that he would not return to Philadelphia, but now we know it well.
The Eagles sent a third round to the Lions for Tate in the 2019 NFL Draft just before the 2018 NFL deadline. Philly, however, tried to effectively include him in the offense.
In his eight games to end the regular season, Tate gradually became a regular destination for Carson Wentz (and then Nick Foles), despite a questionable quote from OC Mike Groh calling it "challenging" to include the WR , Anyone who entered the league in the ninth year and has performed well with his two former teams should be able to intervene relatively easily in the rotation, but I digress …
Tate started in four of his eight games for Philly and made catches for 278 yards, and also used as a specialist for returnees in special teams. During the Eagles postseason, the wideout had seven catches for 64 yards and a touchdown that would preserve the title Tate, which is known in Philadelphia, for a while
after the Super Bowl, and teams began to sign players by the way Tate joked sarcastically that he did not know that teams could sign players before the free agency, indicating that the Eagles did not disclose their intentions.
Oh, you do not have to wait until March to sign up for extensions. Hmm interesting, good to know ✌

Sporadically, he then noted that he does not mind playing in New England hosted other cities.
Tate also appeared to be relatively bitter when the news broke that the Eagles were acting to return DeSean Jackson to Philly shortly before the opening of the agency.
BLG Note: Oh my god, Dave Gettleman is really the gift that always passes. Yes, the Giants really REALLY rebuild by signing a 30-year-old recipient who was dead # 1 in the Football Outsiders DYAR statistic last year! This news is really great for the Eagles as it helps Philly get another (fourth round?) Equalizer in the 2020 NFL Draft. Maybe a Pick-Pick will be canceled in the fifth round, which should receive the Giants. Say it to me: #LongLiveDaveGettleman!
