New York Giants Replace Odell Beckham Jr. With Golden Tate

New York Giants signed Golden Tate to a four-year contract during the 2019 offseason.

The New York Giants have found their replacement for Odell Beckham Jr. only two days after the news broke that the star receiver was traded to the Cleveland Browns for A first and third round pick and safety Jabrill Peppers.

The Giants have signed former Eagles wide receiver Golden Tate, according to Adam Schefter.

Tate is a clear-cut No. 1 wide receiver who has put up solid numbers throughout his career. Last season with the Eagles, Tate put up 795 yards and 4 touchdowns. Between 2014-17, Tate didn’t miss a single game, which promoted a great bill of health. Beckham played in only 12 games the past two years which certainly played a factor in his trading.

Tate signed a four-year deal with Big Blue, earning $37.5 million over the course of the deal. With $23 million guaranteed, Tate will act as the top option for the Giants moving forward. He’s a stellar route runner with sneaky moves in the open field.

In the past five season, Tate has recorded over 1,000 yards three times. He’s not a red-zone target per-say, but he’s fantastic at getting the ball down the field – he also has a ton of playoff experience and has won a Super Bowl. Bringing a true professional into the locker room will help establish a successful mentality moving forward.

Veteran quarterback Eli Manning now has a top option at wideout and the next Giants’ QB will have a good supporting cast to work with.
