We never liked him anyway!

Actually, I take it back. Golden Tate did some nice things here. The touchdown grab against the Bears will go down in Eagles history. I don’t harbor any ill will against him, I think I was more annoyed by the fact that the Eagles used a third round pick to trade for a slot receiver when they already had two slot receivers on the roster (Nelson Agholor and Jordan Matthews).
That’s also a good chunk of money for Golden Tate, who turns 31 in August, but I think he’ll do pretty well there, assuming Eli Manning dinks and dunks 3 yard crapola to him on the reg.
More importantly, this move helps the Eagles snag a compensatory pick as well, which I think would project to a fourth rounder. I’m not sure if the Giants are rebuilding or trying to win now, because this is a move that seems a little strange after committing to Eli but trading away Odell Beckham Jr.
