Golden Tate not ready to retire, lists possible landing spots

The NFL hasn’t heard much from Golden Tate following the New York Giants’ release of the veteran wide receiver earlier this year. Despite being a free agent for several months, Tate has yet to find a landing spot. But in an interview with SiriusXM NFL Radio, he revealed that he still wants to play — and where that might be.

“I would love to go back home to Tennessee,” Tate said. “Indy, over with Carson Wentz. Obviously, the L.A. Rams would be fantastic with (Matthew) Stafford. I had my best years with Stafford. I really like the entire NFC West, to be honest.”

Last November, Tate was benched for repeatedly playing to the television cameras in a 25-23 loss to the Buccaneers, demanding more footballs be thrown in his direction.

“If you know me, if you know my game, I play with a lot of emotion. A lot of passion,” Tate said at the time. “I just got caught up in the moment. I was wrong to draw attention to myself. I take full responsibility for that. I handled it the wrong way and, again, brought negative attention to our organization. It was something that won’t happen again.”

Tate had his least productive season in nine years in 2020, recording 35 catches for 388 yards and two touchdowns.

For his career, Tate has totaled 695 receptions for 8,278 yards and 46 touchdowns over 11 seasons with the Seattle Seahawks (2010-13), Detroit Lions (2014-18), Philadelphia Eagles (2018) and Giants.
