Recently I've been posting an article to several sites. It's an adaptation of the link I will post below, that I originally posted at Pat's Pulpit about how well Golden Tate would fit in their System. Don't get me wrong, I don't want to lose him to Free Agency, but I want to get a sense what his value could be to other teams. Remember, Tate wants to go to a contender, and that limits his options. Most contenders don't have the cap space to sign him, and he also wants to stay in Seattle, and could take a small discount to stay with the best team in the NFL (we won the Super Bowl, I get to say that, looking at you NN).
So instead of asking what WE'D be willing to pay for Tate, what other team would be willing to pay a 5 year/25-30 million contract for Tate. Remember, he wants to go to a contender, so discuss amongst yourselves.
Here's the link to the Pat's Pulpit article: http://www.patspulpit.com/2014/3/3/5465140/whats-golden-just-might-glitter
I've also posted to MHR, Baltimore Beatdown, and Arrohead Pride.
