Golden Tate signed to 4yr deal

Recommended Posts

You guys already have Sterling Sheppard, this signing makes no sense to me, but thanks?

I like the player alot. Probably overpaid. But have to see how it's structured. Gotta have some talent on the field. Obviously doesn't replace the talent of OBJ

Sheppard is a slot guy, Tate is gonna line up outside and try to stretch the field vertically with his speed. We needed something because our WRs after Shepard and Engram aren't too great. I think the Eagles couldn't figure out a way to utilize Tate when he was there. He got lost in their system.

Power moves! Run blocking should be the #1 trait we look for in receivers because it’s going to be the Saquon show. If he could ever get past the 10 man box.  

I’m  feeling pessimistic today

Hope they are entertaining the idea of converting Engram to a WR. I think his size and speed on the outside would be a miss match against most CB's. Utilize Ellison as the everydown TE. Better blocker and can catch.

That's kind of scary. Golden tate has always been a slot guy so far as I can remember. Typically like 70-80% of his snaps are out of the slot. He's not a downfield threat guy; he's a broken tackles and YAC guy.

This is actually a good point. From what I recall from our games against Philly Tate is a damn good blocker

Tate WAS in the slot, Agholor suffered because we moved him back outside to accommodate Tate

Do not like this move at all.  Really hope this doesn't make Shepard expendable in the Front office's eyes.  I guess we'll have to see how they plan to use them both.

Yeah he can try all he wants but he ain’t stretching no field.
