The wide receiver is no longer sweating his contract after inking a reported four-year deal worth $37.5 million with the Giants and celebrated by hilariously re-enacting the famous "show me the money" scene from "Jerry Maguire". Tate will probably catch a decent number of passes in 2019, but will he actually make the team better?
Tate really came into his own as a high-volume wideout during his days with the Detroit Lions. This is just a mind-blowingly stupid move by the Giants. Now going all in in an attempt to squeeze one final championship run out of an aging quarterback does have some merit, just ask Payton Manning, but his younger brother has looked like a shell of himself for seasons, even with a loaded collection of offensive weapons like Saquon Barkley, Odell Beckham, Sterling Shepard, and Evan Engram. This week, they traded Beckham, which suggests that they're looking to rebuild.
Prior to last season Tate had two consecutive 1,000-yard receiving seasons.
Let's be 100 percent real here, the Giants should be in full-on tank mode after trading Beckham.
For months, the vast majority of 2019 National Football League mock drafts have had the New York Giants selecting Ohio State quarterback Dwayne Haskins in the first round. "I think they are going to draft a quarterback".
Bryce Harper hit by pitch, limps off field
After the game, Phillies manager Gabe Kapler said Harper suffered a right foot contusion and perliminary x-rays were negative. Harper was hit in the ankle on a 2-0 pitch by Blue Jays pitcher Trent Thornton in the bottom of the sixth inning.
