Seahawks | Offer to Golden Tate was laughable

Tue, 18 Mar 2014 16:05:42 -0700

Former Seattle Seahawks WR Golden Tate said the offer from the team to attempt to re-sign him was "laughable," and he ended up inking a five-year, $31 million deal with the Detroit Lions. "I didn't mean a 40 percent discount," Tate said. "I'm going to earn in one year at Detroit what Seattle was going to pay me for two years. Seattle offered numbers that were laughable. I thought, 'I've given you everything and this is what you give me?'"

Seahawks | Golden Tate suggests mutual interest

Fri, 28 Feb 2014 23:52:11 -0800

Seattle Seahawks WR Golden Tate, who will soon be a free agent, suggested there's mutual interest between him and the Seahawks in a new contract, but said "only time will tell" if he remains in Seattle. Tate added that he doesn't consider WR Riley Cooper's contract as a sign of what sort of deal he may get, since the two receivers' situations are "very, very different."

"Everyone should realize where this team is," Tate said in a radio interview Tuesday, Nov. 26. "You are affecting way more than yourself. I feel like that was kind of a selfish move on both those guys part. But it is what it is. The show must go on and that's what we're gonna do."

Seahawks | Receiving corps steps up in absence of two WRs

Sun, 10 Nov 2013 23:41:00 -0800

In the absence of Seattle Seahawks WRs Sidney Rice and Percy Harvin, a trio of receivers combined for a stellar day against the Atlanta Falcons on Sunday, Nov. 10. WR's Golden Tate, Jermaine Kearse and Doug Baldwin combined for 14 catches, 257 yards and two touchdowns.

Seahawks | Percy Harvin unlikely for Week 9

Thu, 31 Oct 2013 11:03:55 -0700

Seattle Seahawks WR Percy Harvin (hip) did not practice Wednesday, Oct. 30, and remains day-to-day as for when the team will activate him from the Physically Unable to Perform list. "We want to make sure we don't go too far too fast," head coach Pete Carroll said. "We're looking for the long haul in his recovery. We want to make sure we manage our way through that. We're being very careful. He didn't do a whole lot last week. He did very little. It seems like it's best to keep him in that mode a little longer."

Fantasy Tip: As we've noted countless times, the Seahawks are being ultra-cautious with their most dynamic offensive weapon. They are in the position not to rush him back, either, facing the winless Tampa Bay Buccaneers this weekend. Until he returns, expect Golden Tate and Doug Baldwin to receive more targets. Jermaine Kearse is an option in much deeper leagues.

Seahawks | Sidney Rice has serious injury

Tue, 29 Oct 2013 14:36:14 -0700

Seattle Seahawks WR Sidney Rice (knee) has a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his knee, according to a source.

Fantasy Tip: This hasn't been confirmed yet, but if it's true, you can drop Rice in all formats. In the short term, Golden Tate and Doug Baldwin will see more looks until Percy Harvin (hip) is back in game action, which could be soon.

Seahawks | O-line struggles to protect Russell Wilson

Tue, 29 Oct 2013 09:11:04 -0700

The Seattle Seahawks' patchwork offensive line allowed QB Russell Wilson to be sacked seven times in the team's 14-9 win over the St. Louis Rams in Week 8 Monday, Oct. 28. The run blocking wasn't much better in the victory. "We had a million problems in protection," head coach Pete Carroll said. "The Rams rushed like crazy and we did a ton of stuff to try to offset it, but nothing helped us." Seattle only had 135 yards of total offensive in the contest, with 80 of them coming on a passing touchdown to WR Golden Tate.

Fantasy Tip: It'll be at least a couple of weeks before Seattle gets Russell Okung and Breno Giacomini back, so it might be a continuous struggle to protect Wilson until then. This trend also isn't good for Marshawn Lynch.

Seahawks | Golden Tate the star of camp

Fri, 02 Aug 2013 05:15:00 -0700

Seattle Seahawks WR Golden Tate has been the most impressive player in training camp showing big-play ability.

Fantasy Tip: He could make a nice addition to your fantasy team as a WR3 or WR4. He's in a contract year and had a career 45-688-7 season last year. One has to question whether there are enough options around him to keep defenses honest, though.

Seahawks | Percy Harvin to have surgery Thursday

Thu, 01 Aug 2013 10:17:53 -0700

Seattle Seahawks WR Percy Harvin (hip) is set to have surgery Thursday, Aug. 1, in New York. The team will have a better timetable for his recovery after surgery and doctors are able to determine the extent of the damage. Head coach Pete Carroll believes Harvin will be back and will contribute this season. The injury could mean a bigger role for WR Golden Tate, and he could end up being a kickoff return option. RB Christine Michael could also be asked to return kicks in Harvin's absence.

Seahawks | Golden Tate ready to take big leap forward?

Sun, 28 Jul 2013 19:54:40 -0700

Seattle Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll said WR Golden Tate is in pretty much every package the team runs, and they will use him not just deep, but in the shallow, tempo-based passing game, across the middle. "We're using him in everything," Carroll said.

Fantasy Tip: Tate has shown glimpses of brilliance in his first three years, but not quite the consistency of an upper-echelon receiver. In fact, his biggest claim to fame might be as the receiver on the end of the controversial replacement referee blown call on Monday Night Football in Week 3 last season. There has been a buzz about Tate in camp early on, and he could be a guy that explodes for fantasy owners in 2013, filling the void if Percy Harvin (hip) is sidelined.

Seahawks | Percy Harvin may need surgery

Thu, 25 Jul 2013 12:48:17 -0700

Updating previous reports, Seattle Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll said there is a possibility that WR Percy Harvin (hip) may need surgery on his injured hip. He is scheduled to get a second opinion on the injury.

Fantasy Tip: Harvin's status for start of the season is now in jeopardy with the possibility of surgery. Owners should drop Harvin significantly if he does need surgery and should not consider using a high pick on him regardless of if he needs surgery because of his injury history. Golden Tate, Sidney Rice and Doug Baldwin could see more targets if Harvin does need surgery.

Seahawks | Battle to be heated for fifth WR job

Tue, 23 Jul 2013 08:59:28 -0700

Seattle Seahawks WRs Doug Baldwin, Percy Harvin, Sidney Rice and Golden Tate are expected to be the top four wide receivers. Unless an injury or two occurs, that leaves WRs Phil Bates, Arceto Clark, Chris Harper, Greg Herd Jermaine Kearse, Brett Swain, Justin Veltung, Bryan Walters and Stephen Williams to battle it out for the fifth, and perhaps sixth, receiver job(s). The team kept five receivers last season, but could elect to keep six. Walters reportedly had a strong offseason working in the slot.

Seahawks | Golden Tate thinks team can be good for long time

Thu, 04 Jul 2013 21:38:39 -0700

Seattle Seahawks WR Golden Tate said he believes the Seahawks can be a very good team for a long period of time. "I think we have a chance to be really, really special, and special for a long time," Tate said. "If we can just stay healthy and not let (it) go to our heads ... I'm sure [head coach Pete Carroll] will not let that happen. ... I think the last few years, teams kind of thought, 'Seattle, we're going to walk all over them,' but not anymore."

Seahawks | Golden Tate entering contract year

Wed, 26 Jun 2013 19:15:52 -0700

Seattle Seahawks WR Golden Tate is playing on the last year of his rookie contract. He was second on the team with 45 receptions in 2012, but the team has since added WR Percy Harvin.

Fantasy Tip: Tate should be playing with a little extra incentive in a contract year, but when he was the second receiving option last season, he still saw just 68 targets. As long as Harvin and WR Sidney Rice are healthy, Tate's fantasy ceiling is rather limited.
