Per Adam Schefter, it’s a four-year deal worth a total of $37.5 million, with $23 million guaranteed.Tate was originally drafted by the Seattle Seahawks in the second round of the 2010 NFL Draft White B.J. Hill Jerseys , where he spent the next four seasons before signing with the Detroit Lions as a free agent in 2015. Tate was traded to the Philadelphia Eagles in late October of 2018 for a third-round pick. All told last year, he caught 74 passes on 113 targets (65.5 percent) for 795 yards and four touchdowns and 53 yards per game.While those numbers are OK, they represent a clear decline from his average of 93 receptions, 1,000 yards, and catching roughly 70 percent of passes over the previous four years. Football Outsiders named him the second-worst receiver of 2018, with a -134 DYAR (defense-adjusted yards above replacement) B.J. Hill Jerseys 2019 , and a DVOA (defense-adjusted value over average) of -22.3 percent with the Lions and -36.9 percent with the Eagles. The Giants will clearly be hoping that Tate, who will be 31 years old when the season starts, rebounds in a new situation and offensive scheme, and provides a veteran presence for what otherwise looks like a very young receiving room. The New York Giants have announced that they have waived former starting offensive tackle Ereck Flowers.News first surfaced Monday that the Giants were trying to trade Flowers, and failing that, they would cut him by 4 p.m. Tuesday. There had been rumors of a team interested in trading for Flowers, but if there were indeed any such talks White Kyle Lauletta Jerseys , they obviously fell through. Now Flowers will go to the waiver wire, and it wouldn’t surprise to see teams put in claims on the former first rounder. The Giants drafted Flowers ninth overall in the 2015 NFL draft, and at the time Giants’ head coach Tom Coughlin said of Flowers, “The kid is an outstanding athlete. He is very young, as you know. He is a battleship, an aircraft carrier or however you want to describe him at six-foot-six, 329 [pounds]. Strongest guy in the draft. Outstanding feet. [He] just turned 21 a couple of days ago here in mid- to late-April. Those things Kyle Lauletta Jerseys 2019 , together with the desire to improve both our offensive and our defensive lines, to be honest with you, we think we have made a good start here.”The move opens a spot on the roster and offensive line depth chart, and the Giants will reportedly promote OT Brian Mihalik to fill it. Mihalik, 6-foot-9 and 315 pounds, played in 15 games for the Detroit Lions in 2017. He started twice at left tackle, vs. Pittsburgh on Oct. 29 and at Green Bay on Nov. 6.The Giants viewed Mihalik up close when they practiced with the Lions for three days in August. He was released by Detroit on Sept. 2 and signed to the Giants’ practice squad on Sept. 13.Placekicker Marshall Koehn added to practice squadCoach Pat Shurmur had indicated Monday that the Giants would need to add a placekicker to the practice squad to protect themselves with Aldrick Rosas dealing with a quad injury. The Giants did that Tuesday White Evan Engram Jerseys , adding Marshall Koehn to fill the practice squad spot vacated by Mihalik’s promotion. Koehn was with the Giants in the preseason. Shurmur indicated Tuesday that the Giants will wait as long as possible before deciding whether they need to promote Koehn to the 53-man roster.
