3 Most Likely Golden Tate Trade Destinations
The NFL Trade Deadline is approaching, on Tuesday November 3, and there are plenty of interesting situations to monitor.
One is in New York, as the Giants could be looking to move veteran wide receiver Golden Tate while they continue to build for the future.
Here are the most likely trade destinations for Tate.
3. Philadelphia Eagles
Philadelphia Eagles fans may have been happy to see Tate and the Eagles part ways after his underwhelming 34.8 yards per game in a half-season in 2018. Bringing him back would make a ton of sense in 2020, however. Injuries have left Philly thin at wide receiver (and with pass-catchers in general), and while players like Travis Fulgham have stepped up admirably, they clearly need more depth. A 2-4-1 team wouldn't usually be making win-now moves like adding an expensive veteran in Tate, but that record still has the Eagles sitting first in the NFC East, so they're firmly in the playoff hunt.
2. Seattle Seahawks
After being rumored to have interest in Antonio Brown, the Seattle Seahawks could bring in Tate as a veteran slot receiver instead. A reunion in Seattle, where Tate caught a career-high 7 touchdowns back in 2012, would let Tate work underneath out of the slot while DK Metcalf and Tyler Lockett stretch the defense on the outside. Russell Wilson is already leading one of the NFL's most dangerous passing attacks, and adding Tate would make them even better.
1. Green Bay Packers
Always in the conversation when a wide receiver becomes available, the Green Bay Packers' stubborn refusal to add weapons for Aaron Rodgers this offseason makes them a great landing spot. Despite playing just 3 games, Davante Adams leads the Packers in receptions (23) and he's the only WR on the team with more than 15 catches. Marquez Valdes-Scantling and Allen Lazard have shown flashes, but both work as deep threats (18.9-yard average depth of targets [aDOT] for MVS, 13.5 for Lazard). Tate (6.8-yard aDOT) would give a new dimension to this passing game.
