Steelers interested in free-agent WR Golden Tate

In the aftermath of their decision to trade away superstar receiver Odell Beckham, the Giants have insisted that they have a plan without telling us what that plan is. Although his short stint in Philadelphia was a disappointment, Tate has routinely been one of fantasy's most dependable wide receivers, and especially so in contrast to a typically much lower ADP.

To me, the "Golden Tate"-era already feels like a weird fever dream of a team desperately attempting to return to the postseason despite having a deeply flawed roster".

Tate really came into his own as a high-volume wideout during his days with the Detroit Lions.

Tate's production dropped dramatically past year after a midseason trade from the Lions to the Eagles, where he averaged just 9.2 yards per reception and 34.2 yards per game.

Let's be 100 percent real here, the Giants should be in full-on tank mode after trading Beckham. I highly doubt it. This week, they traded Beckham, which suggests that they're looking to rebuild.

Tate, who is fully guaranteed $23 million, caught 74 passes for 795 yards and four touchdowns for the Lions and Eagles last season.

Why not outbid the Indianapolis Colts to lock up Devin Funchess on a one-year deal, for, say, $14 million?

So the unenviable job of replacing the best receiver in the National Football League goes to.

After declaring that "My time is limited". I want to go to a team that has a chance.

The New York Giants are seemingly not interested in winning anything in 2019.
