The veteran signed a four-year contract worth $37.5 million with $23 million fully guaranteed, a source told ESPN's Adam Schefter.

Tate will help the Giants in the post Odell Beckham Jr. era. For his career, Tate, who will turn 31 before his first season with the Giants, has 611 catches for 7,214 yards and 38 touchdowns in his career. Is this really a team in rebuilding mode?

Tate caught 74 passes for 795 yards and 4 touchdowns in 15 games between the Lions and Eagles last season.

Bolden, 29, who re-joins the Patriots after one season with the Miami Dolphins, spent his first six National Football League seasons with New England. He's also always been a reliable and productive fantasy asset. At 30, this is likely the last big contract Tate will command. I expect that, despite the unideal landing spot, Tate will again prove to be a fantasy value. The room will be led by Sterling Shepard and Corey Coleman (and now Tate), but the team will certainly be looking to add more bodies to the room with one of their 12 picks in April's draft. It's unclear if those moves take them out of the running for Tate.

In 2017, Tate ranked as our seventh-highest-graded wide receiver (of 102 qualifying).

But when it was all said and done, veteran Golden Tate opted to remain in the NFC East - this after a half of a season with the Philadelphia Eagles. 2018 is notable because, well, it's his most recent season.
