Golden Tate celebrates touchdown

Three trade destinations for New York Giants receiver Golden Tate

Home » NFL » Three trade destinations for New York Giants receiver Golden Tate

Wide receiver Golden Tate has seen a decline in production since his first season with the New York Giants.

In his first season with the Giants, Tate averaged just under five catches in the 11 games he played, however through the first six games of this season that number has gone down to just over three catches a game.

With the Giants paying him over $9 million per season they may look to trade Tate.

Here are three potential trade destinations for Golden Tate:

Cleveland Browns

With Odell Beckham Jr out for the season the Cleveland Browns could do with another receiver to pair with Jarvis Landry.


Golden Tate could be that player, he is not a number one receiver, but he can play a number two receiver role.

Tate has proven to be productive when the ball is thrown his way.

During his four-seasons in Detroit he had three 1,000-yard seasons. Even though this was as a number one target it shows he is a very capable receiver. With his first season in New York, he had 49 receptions for 676 touchdowns and 6 touchdown catches in 11 games.

Denver Broncos

After trading away long time Bronco Emmanuel Sanders, Denver have had a hole at wide receiver that they are yet to fill.

Golden Tate might be able to help fill that void. Since he left Detroit, Tate has not put up the numbers, but his targets have dropped significantly since Detroit traded him to Philadelphia for a third-round pick in 2018.


Who knows, maybe Tate has one last 1,000-yard season in him. At 32 years old, plus having his targets dropped for the last four years, he could have a few more good seasons in him.

Green Bay Packers

With Davante Adams getting 12 targets a game, this shows that Green Bay need a reliable second option at receiver.

Golden Tate would give Green Bay quarterback Aaron Rodgers another good target to throw to, catching 76.9% of his targets from Daniel Jones this season and 57.6% last season.

Now give Tate a very accurate and efficient quarterback in Rodgers, who since starting has never dropped below a 60% competition rate and you have a very scary looking offence.

Adding Tate would also take pressure off Adams as well due to the fact teams would need to keep an eye on Golden Tate which would get both receivers open more.
