Phillip Dorsett re-signs with the Patriots on one-year deal

Most of the big-name wide receivers in 2019 free agency have already found new homes, but there are still a handful of quality talents on the market. That's good, but it's concerning that Tate's two-worst-graded seasons (since his rookie year) have come in 2018 and 2016. But instead of wearing the Philadelphia Eagles' midnight green, he'll be wearing the blue of the New York Giants. After giving away a dynamic playmaker in Odell Beckham Jr.

In Tate, the Giants are getting one of the league's best slot receivers who ranks eighth in receptions and 16th in receiving yards since he entered the NFL back in 2010 as a second-round pick of the Seahawks.

Golden Tate has agreed to a four-year, $37.5 million deal with the New York Giants. Tate was named to the Pro Bowl in 2014, his first in Detroit. The veteran finished with just 74 receptions for 795 yards and four touchdowns in 15 games. He posted all of his best seasons in Detroit, racking up 90 catches each of his four full years. And if you combine his work with the Lions and Eagles this past year, those team's quarterbacks took aim at the nine-year wide receiver a combined 113 times. This seems like a unusual move for a team that's supposedly in rebuild-mode, and though I don't love the fit, I do love the player. Even though the club has moved on from some key players, the addition of Tate would seem to indicate otherwise.
