The Golden Ticket?

SHARE:

It's been just over two weeks since the Patriots won their sixth Super Bowl since joining the NFL in 1970.  The trophies have been handed out, the parties have been had, and the cleanup following another duck boat parade is all taken care of.  But, as we've come to learn in New England, that means Bill Belichick is hard at work, preparing for his next run at the Lombardi Trophy.  In what is already an iconic and Hall of Fame worthy career, Belichick has never been one to sit back and rest on his laurels.

One of the big focuses this offseason has to be addressing the weapons available for an aging Tom Brady.  Even with the likes of Julian Edelman and Rob Gronkowski, the Patriots have some holes to address for next season, one of them being their wide receiver depth.  The Patriots will see Chris Hogan, Phillip Dorsett, and Cordarelle Patterson all becoming unrestricted free agents going into the 2019 season.

With the need emerging, the rumors have already begun to swirl for some potential targets for the Patriots.  One such target being 30 year old wideout Golden Tate, who has spent his career split between the Seattle Seahawks, Detroit Lions, and most recently the Philadelphia Eagles.  Tate was best able to establish himself as a solid option in his time with the Lions, becoming a high value target for Matthew Stafford.  In his time in Detroit, Tate tallied 90+ receptions in each of his four full seasons while gaining over 1,000 receiving yards in all but the 2015 season.  Tate's ability to earn yards after the catch is one of the most alluring parts of his game.  Even more so when considering Tom Brady's ability to read defenses and quickly deliver the ball.


The potential combination of Julian Edelman, Rob Gronkowski, and Golden Tate in a Patriots jersey could be a devastating proposition for opposing defenses.  Another highlight for a potential match with Tate is his ability to remain largely healthy throughout his career.  Missing only a handful of games in his nine NFL seasons. The combination of production and dependability is something that the Patriots and Tom Brady can certainly utilize.

Coming off of a down year, in which he was traded midway through the season for a 3rd round pick, Tate is looking to prove that he is still a top wide out in this league... and judging by some of his latest tweets, he's also looking to play for a contender...
