Golden Tate is still in Joe Judge’s dog house. Art Stapleton of northjersey.com revealed that New York Giants‘ wide receiver Golden Tate will not be traveling with the team to Washington D.C. and will not play in Sunday’s divisional matchup.
This punishment is spurring from Tate yelling into a Monday Night Football camera “throw me the ball” in Monday’s matchup vs the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Tate was unhappy with the lack of targets he was getting from quarterback Daniel Jones. Then his wife, Elise Tate, took to social media to complain about the criticism towards her spouse. Many speculated that her aggression targeted Jones and the Giants coaching staff.
Joe Judge took action in Tuesday’s practice. Judge had a conversation with the veteran wide receiver and sent him home afterward. Tate liked two tweets on Twitter, hours after, prompting that the Giants should release the veteran wide receiver. That poses the speculation that Tate wants out of the Big Apple.
Tate participated in practice on Friday, mainly on the scout team posing as Washington wide receiver Terry McLaurin.
In eight games this season, Golden Tate caught 22 passes for 226 yards for two touchdowns. Unfortunately for Tate, he is averaging a low amount of yards after catch (2.8). Yards after catch is something he always excelled at in his career.
