Another Patriots wide receiver target is off the board, as Golden Tate has agreed to sign with the New York Giants.
The deal is for four years, $37.5 million, per ESPN's Adam Schefter.

Tate, who spent seven games with the Lions last season before being traded to the Eagles, tallied 74 receptions for 795 yards and four touchdowns in 2018.
The 30-year-old veteran said earlier in the offseason that he'd love to play with the Patriots, and it was reported Thursday that Tate's decision was narrowed down to either the Pats or Steelers. But after shipping Odell Beckham Jr. to Cleveland, it's clear New York wants Tate as their No. 1 wideout for 2019.
