The Giants have already found a receiver to take Odell Beckham Jr.’s place, as veteran WR Golden Tate has agreed to a four-year deal with Big Blue. CAA Football, who Tate is represented by, made the deal official with a Twitter announcement.
Tate’s deal is worth $37.5 million over the four years, with $23 million in guaranteed money, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter. Coming out to $9.375 million per season, that is slightly lower than Spotrac’s market value for Tate at $10.2 million.
Tate, who will be 31 when the new season starts, began his 2018 campaign with the Lions, where he totaled 517 yards on 44 receptions with three touchdowns. He was, then, traded to the Eagles before the NFL trade deadline, but he never took off in their hunt to defend their Super Bowl title. He played in eight games (four starts), totaling 278 yards on 30 receptions with one touchdown.
