This paints the picture of Tate as one of the league's best slot wide receivers, or one of the league's best wide receivers once the ball is in his hands - and I think that's correct. And there was speculation that his choices were down to a pair of AFC powers in the defending Super Bowl champion New England Patriots and the very-consistent Pittsburgh Steelers. But instead of wearing the Philadelphia Eagles' midnight green, he'll be wearing the blue of the New York Giants. Tate started the 2018 season with the Detroit Lions before being dealt to the Philadelphia Eagles.
In each of the past eight seasons, among all wide receivers with at least 50 targets, Tate has ranked top-four in missed tackles forced per reception.
Tate is coming off a poor campaign in which he was dealt from Detroit to Philadelphia midway through the season.
Real Madrid agree €50m deal for first summer signing under Zidane
Zidane's return to the 13-time European champions was confirmed on Monday and the club has wasted no time in rebuilding their squad.

Tate will help the Giants in the post Odell Beckham Jr. era. It's unclear if those moves take them out of the running for Tate. And Pat Shurmur's offense should be interesting if the line can keep the veteran signal-caller out of harm's way. We can't wait to see him in NY. Even though the club has moved on from some key players, the addition of Tate would seem to indicate otherwise. Is this really a team in rebuilding mode?
