Giants activate Corey Coleman, and he plays more snaps than Golden Tate

This has been a contentious week for Golden Tate and the Giants.

So long as we’re making bold predictions, let’s get a little weird.

There’s a legitimate chance that he is among the inactives Sunday, as punishment for screaming “Throw me the ball” after catching a touchdown and his wife posting an inflammatory message on Instagram criticizing his lack of playing time and targets.

When the Giants signed wide receiver Corey Coleman to the practice squad last week, some believed it was in advance of a possible trade deadline deal involving Golden Tate. That obviously didn’t happen.

However, after head coach Joe Judge was noncommittal to playing Sunday, there’s a possibility Coleman could be activated from the practice squad and promoted to the game day roster. If that happens, even if Tate is active, I’d be surprised if Coleman doesn’t play more than 39 snaps per game that Tate is averaging.
