Number Three: Productiveness
It’s hard to argue that Golden Tate is one of the most underrated wide receivers in recent history.
Tate has done nothing but produce very well at the NFL level and usually on underwhelming teams at that. If the New Orleans Saints pursue Tate, they will be getting a very productive wideout to catch passes from Drew Brees.
Tate has played eleven seasons in the NFL but he hasn’t played on a playoff team since he left Seattle back in 2013. Although he didn’t play up north anymore, that didn’t stop him from recording four consecutive 90 reception seasons from 2014 through 2017.
Tate, in his career, has recorded 680 receptions, 8,085 receiving yards, 11.9 yards per reception, 372 first downs, and 45 receiving touchdowns. Tate has also run the ball very well, accumulating 216 rushing yards and 13 first downs on just 44 carries.
Tate would bring a lot with him to New Orleans which is what they need considering the inconsistent play from Saints wide receivers this season.
