The New York Giants made their first big move of free agency Thursday evening and from seemingly out of nowhere it was announced that the team would be signing receiver Golden Tate to a 4-year, $37.5 million contract, $23 million of which is guaranteed.
The Giants were in a position where they had to make a move after trading Odell Beckham Jr. to the Cleveland Browns and leaving a gaping hole in their offense. Signing Tate is the first of those moves.
On the surface this is a simple one-for-one move, but there are layers to peal back and consequences to sort out. And so as we have done throughout the free agency process, Dan and I leaped onto the air-waves to work through the signing and the eventual implications of the move.
