Giants released WR Golden Tate, per source.— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) March 3, 2021
In Tate’s two years with the Giants, he caught 84 balls for 1064 yards and 8 touchdowns.
Golden has now been in the league for 11 years and it’s questionable how many years he may have left in the tank. During those 11 years in the NFL, Tate has more YAC than anyone else in the league with 4,353.
