Golden Tate reenacts 'Show me the money!' scene to toast Giants deal

Golden Tate may end up with an Oscar before another Super Bowl ring.

According to the New York Daily News' Pat Leonard, the Patriots receiver's representatives have spoken to the Giants, who traded their star receiver earlier this week.

No, the Giants look like they will be a really, really bad team again in 2019 and will continue to struggle to even sniff at the postseason until they can settle on a young, high upside corp to build around. It's unclear if those moves take them out of the running for Tate.

Gettleman took the conservative approach to the first three days of free agency as the rest of the National Football League went on a spending spree. He was busy trading with the Browns and stocking up on draft picks.

So the decision to add Tate is a bit of a head-scratcher other than to say Gettleman truly believes he can win and rebuild at the same time.

If only Berry's healthy years had switched to 2017 and 2018 when the offense came alive and Patrick Mahomes came to. A lymphoma diagnosis cut Berry's 2014 season short, but he returned before the start of the 2015 season.

Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver Golden Tate (19) warms up before action against the Dallas Cowboys at Lincoln Financial Field.

Tate reportedly was seeking somewhere between $11-13 million a season, but the Giants were able to get Tate for reasonably less as he approaches his 10th season. The deal includes $23 million in fully guaranteed money. A 2010 second-rounder, Tate started his career with the Seattle Seahawks before three and a half seasons with the Lions.

He's a good player and he deserves to be paid like one, but the signing is still confusing.

Will swapping out Beckham for Tate do anything to roll back Eli Manning's clock and make the Giants' offense potent for the first time in years?

Both Tate and Shepard have experience on the outside but will be playing outside of their strengths.
