Giants Sign Free Agent Wide Receiver Golden Tate

A former Wall Street executive, Geoff Block has guided the operations of South Carolina's RLB Squared, LLC, since 2013. An avid sports fan, Geoff Block counts the New York Giants as his favorite team in the National Football League.

Two days after the team dealt premier wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. to the Cleveland Browns, the New York Giants made a somewhat surprising move by signing free agent wide receiver Golden Tate to a four-year, $37.5 million contract. The Beckham trade seemed to signify that the Giants were set to embark on an organizational rebuild, but signing Tate, a 30-year-old veteran of nine seasons, directly opposes that strategy.
Nonetheless, Tate should help improve the team's offense, which will still revolve around star running back Saquon Barkley. Selected in the second round of the 2010 NFL Draft by the Seattle Seahawks, Tate has registered at least 1,000 receiving yards in three of the past five seasons and has 38 touchdowns in 137 career regular-season games. He won the Super Bowl with the Seahawks in 2013 and played in the Pro Bowl in 2014, after posting a career-best 1,331 receiving yards with the Detroit Lions. He split last season between the Lions and the Philadelphia Eagles.
