Most of the big-name wide receivers in 2019 free agency have already found new homes, but there are still a handful of quality talents on the market.
Golden Tate is arguably the best receiver still available on the open market and he has two teams as his final choices as the league awaits his decision. Tate will join either the New England Patriots or Pittsburgh Steelers in free agency, per a report.
Golden Tate's choices are down to the Patriots and Steelers. Which seems like sitting in front of the Netflix menu trying to decide between Infinity War or Suicide Squad. But alright ...— Jerry Thornton (@jerrythornton1) March 14, 2019
While the Patriots would seem like the more logical destination for a veteran wide receiver like Tate, the Steelers have kept themselves in play for the 30 year old.
Tate surely wants to win another Super Bowl ring, but he's won in the past with the Seahawks, so perhaps Super Bowl contention won't play as big a factor in his decision.
Per @RapSheet, Patriots have interest in Golden Tate. He also mentioned Pittsburgh.— Mark Daniels (@MarkDanielsPJ) March 14, 2019
The veteran wideout started the 2018 campaign with Detroit, but was traded to the Eagles at the deadline. In total, Tate recorded 74 receptions on 113 targets for 795 yards and 4 touchdowns.
Both teams could be potentially solid fits for Tate, as the Patriots have missed out on other available receivers during the offseason and are hoping to lock down a possible replacement to Chris Hogan.
