Giants WR Tate won’t play Sunday after turbulent week

Veteran wide receiver Golden Tate will not travel with the New York Giants to Washington for Sunday’s game, NFL Network reported.

The move caps a week that saw coach Joe Judge tell Tate to stay home from practice on Wednesday following his behavior during Monday night’s loss to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. When Tate returned to practice later in the week, he was assigned scout team duties.

The Giants (1-7) are scheduled to play the Washington Football Team (2-5) at 1 p.m. ET on Sunday.

Tate, 32, caught his first pass in Monday’s game during the fourth quarter and reportedly yelled “throw me the damn ball” at the Giants’ sideline. Later, he made a stellar touchdown grab to pull New York within two and screamed “throw me the ball!” into an ESPN camera.

Tate also engaged in a few other outbursts in which he was jumping up and down or waving his hands to display his frustration when he felt he was open and the ball didn’t come his way.

“It has to be team-first for everyone in this building, every coach and every player,” Judge told reporters earlier this week. “There are no exceptions for that. I’m not going to tolerate and put up with any kind of selfish behavior from anybody.”

Tate’s wife, Elise, also complained about her husband’s role in the offense in a since-deleted Instagram post.

Tate has 22 receptions for 226 yards and two touchdowns in seven games this season. The 11-year veteran has 682 catches for 8,116 yards and 46 scores in 155 career games (112 starts) with the Seahawks, Lions, Eagles and Giants.

The Giants signed Tate to a four-year, $37.5 million contract — $22.95 million of it guaranteed — in March 2019.
