Golden Tate Punished By Team Over TD Celebration, Wife’s Rant; Tate ‘Likes’ Tweet Saying Team Should Cut Him (TWEET)
Golden Tate wants out of New York.
The veteran wide receiver was missing from practice Wednesday following multiple rants about his role in the New York Giants offense.
During Monday’s loss to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, the veteran receiver yelled “throw me the damn ball” toward the Giants sideline following his first target and catch of the game in the fourth quarter.
After the game, Tate’s wife Elise Tate joined in by ranting on her Instagram story, declaring “I’m lit” over her husband’s lack of targets.
On his day away from the facility, social media users noticed that Tate “liked” a couple of tweets, one of a fan asking the Giants to cut him.
“I spoke to Golden at length today and we’re dealing internally with a lot of things,” Judge told reporters. “We have a walk-through today. He is not going to be at the walk-through today but he will be back in the building and practicing with us the remainder of the week. It will be business as usual.”
The 32-year-old Tate has 22 receptions for 226 yards and two touchdowns through seven games, putting him on pace for his lowest output for a full season in nine years.
