10 things you need to know about Golden Tate

Beckham's departure leaves 124 targets (across 12 games) unaccounted for in this offense, which is good, but the Giants are likely to be a much more run-heavy team in 2019, and one of Tate or Sterling Shepard is likely to be playing out of position. As hype as Rod Tidwell.

It's a four-year, $37.5 million deal with $23 million fully guaranteed, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.

The video went viral, prompting Tate to reach out to Dwayne Johnson on Twitter for advice on his next career move.

The 30-year-old Tate spent last season between the Detroit Lions and Philadelphia Eagles, finishing with a combined 74 receptions for 795 yards and four touchdowns.

Prior to last season Tate had two consecutive 1,000-yard receiving seasons. That's good, but it's concerning that Tate's two-worst-graded seasons (since his rookie year) have come in 2018 and 2016.

No, he's not the answer to filling the cleats of Odell Beckham Jr. After trading away Beckham, it certainly looked like the Giants wanted to rebuild.

So the unenviable job of replacing the best receiver in the National Football League goes to.

Early indications are that it may be Murray of bust for the Giants at No. 6, leaving them to select from one of the draft's elite defensive prospects, which would be a satisfactory secondary option. "I want to win now." in an interview with Geoff Mosher, Golden Tate's decision to sign with the New York Giants is beyond confusing.

The New York Giants split their final eight games this past season after a 1-7 start.
