Patriots, Jason McCourty Agree To Two-Year Deal

Grading the Move Giants’ decision to sign Golden Tate makes little sense

Tate is leaving the Eagles and signing with the Giants, according to Create Artists Agency. He should help the Giants win slightly more games than they would've won without him, but he's not going to transform them into a surprise playoff team.

But landing a four-year deal with $23 million guaranteed on the wrong side of 30 is still a victory, too.

They had attempted to lure Phillip Dorsett to East Rutherford, but he ultimately chose to re-sign with the New England Patriots.

Giants general manager Dave Gettleman made a mistake throwing money around last offseason and most of his few free-agent signings, especially running back Jonathan Stewart and offensive guard Patrick Omameh, made little or no impact on the team.

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. With Beckham traded to the Cleveland Browns, Eli Manning now has a crew of Tate, Sterling Shepard, Evan Engram and, of course, Saquon Barkley, to spread the ball to in NY.

Before his brief stint in Philly, Tate spent four seasons with the Seattle Seahawks and five years with the Lions.

McCourty played 80 percent of the Patriots' defensive snaps during the regular season and was one of four Patriots defensive players who played every snap in the Super Bowl.
