WR – Golden Tate
The Giants’ decision to sign Tate in the first place in 2019 made little sense at the time, and his contract is about to become an albatross.
Next season, Tate is due to count $10.8 million against the cap when he will be 33 years old, on a team that is likely at least one more season away from legitimately competing for the postseason and further away than that from a possible Super Bowl run.
Still a very productive slot receiver and capable punt returner, Tate is the type of player who can give a contending team a weapon that might help push them across the finish line in a playoff chase down the stretch.
Gettleman would be wise to burn the phone lines trying to move Tate to the Cleveland Browns, Green Bay Packers, or another receiver-needy contender Tuesday, and if he’s unable to move him before the deadline, try again this offseason.
