Golden Tate heads to the Giants to help replace Odell Beckham Jr

Golden Tate heads to the Giants to help replace Odell Beckham Jr

Golden Tate is arguably the best receiver left in National Football League free agency. It is a bit of a surprise he'd choose the Giants given their current situation and him being 30 years old.

The former Bucs wideout agreed to a four-year deal with Tennessee on Monday, but ESPN's Dianna Russini first reported that the Titans "were bidding against New England all day" for the slot receiver. The Steelers have already reportedly made a move to sign wide receiver Donte Moncrief but could also be a buyer for Golden Tate.

So the decision to add Tate is a bit of a head-scratcher other than to say Gettleman truly believes he can win and rebuild at the same time. And the Giants certainly had a need at the position after dealing Beckham to the Browns.

Originally drafted by the Seahawks, Tate had four straight seasons of at least 90 catches from 2014-17 with the Lions, topping 1,000 yards in three of those seasons.

The Lions got a third-round pick out of the Eagles for him and then stumbled to a 6-10 season as he helped Philadelphia reach the playoffs and beat the Bears in the wildcard round on Tate's game-winning reception.

McCourty played 80 percent of the Patriots' defensive snaps during the regular season and was one of four Patriots defensive players who played every snap in the Super Bowl.

The Patriots re-signed wide receiver Phillip Dorsett to a one-year deal Wednesday.

Both Tate and Shepard have experience on the outside but will be playing outside of their strengths.
