Golden Tate heads to the Giants to help replace Odell Beckham Jr

For his career, Tate, who will turn 31 before his first season with the Giants, has 611 catches for 7,214 yards and 38 touchdowns in his career.

The Notre Dame product posted 795 yards and four touchdowns last season, though he was on pace to eclipse 1,000 yards before the Detroit Lions shipped him to the Philadelphia Eagles at the trade deadline.

So the unenviable job of replacing the best receiver in the National Football League goes to. He was widely viewed as the top player at his position available in free agency.

The Lions discussed an extension with him previous year but had numbers lower than he was looking for.

Glen Johnson really, really loves Virgil van Dijk
He was the orchestrator in Munich and looked like a teenager playing among 10-year-olds, so comfortable was he on the ball. With the score locked at 1-1, Virgil van Dijk rose above the defence and slammed home a header from a James Milner corner.

Following reports that Big Blue will add Tate to the roster, the details of his four-year deal were reported as well. The 10th-year pro tallied one interception and 14 pass breakups - including a pivotal PBU against Brandin Cooks in the Super Bowl - and ranked second behind All-Pro Stephon Gilmore in snaps played among Patriots cornerbacks.

"The Giants take a $16 salary cap hit in dead money with the trade of Beckham but gained $5 million in cap relief in 2019 after taking Beckham's $16.75 million base salary off the books", writes Schwartz.

Over the past six seasons, (starting with 2018), Tate has ranked 28th, 17th, 24th, 12th, and 30th in fantasy points scored.

Defensive end is an area of need for New England, which let Trey Flowers walk in free agency to sign with the Detroit Lions.
