Although he is on the back half of his career, Golden Tate is still a relatively productive receiver into his 30s and is set to hit the market after being traded to the Eagles from the Lions this season. The Eagles are currently in the red in terms of salary cap and will not be able to retain his services. Tampa Bay should have Tate on their white board as a potential bargain replacement for Humphries.
While it would be hard to guess what Tate will be asking on the open market in free agency, a good estimate may be around the $8 million range. The former Seahawk, Lion, and Eagle has produced three 1,000 yard seasons in his career and has been named to a Pro Bowl in 2014 as well; he has also seen over 100 targets in five straight seasons.
Last season Tate produced nearly 800 yards in two different offenses on 74 catches from Matt Stafford and Nick Foles. He found the end zone four times in 2018 as well and is probably reliable for right around 75-85 catches for 1,000 yards moving forward. While a little more pricey than the other two options, Tate would provide a veteran presence in the wide receiver room and would be a great compliment to Evans and Godwin for the Buccaneers.
