After having a solid season with the Philadelphia Eagles — Golden Tate is set to hit free agency and he seems to already have one team in mind that could bring him another championship ring.
Via Phil Perry of NBC Sports Boston, the free agent wide receiver said he would like to catch some passes from Patriots quarterback Tom Brady if given the opportunity.
“Man, I would love it,” the veteran wideout said of the Patriots on the Prostyle Podcast. “I would love it. That organization, they’ve proven to be champions year in and year out. They work hard, for sure. But you know where you’re going to be at the end of the season. You’re going to be looking at not going to the playoffs, but you’re going to be looking at maybe a first-round bye, which is key.
“You gotta admire that organization. They do things right. They’ve been doing it for a long, long, long time. So, I’d definitely love to be a part of something like that and catch a few passes from ol’ Tommy Boy. Julian [Edelman] is a buddy of mine. I’m real good buddies with him and I’ve heard good things. Kyle Van Noy, who got traded from Detroit and has been there and has been balling out since, has said great things about the organization. I definitely would not mind going over there for sure.”
The 30-year-old WR previously won a ring as a member of the Seattle Seahawks, so he’s definitely not one of those guys who is trying to latch on at the end of his career to secure a ring. Plus, he is still very serviceable at the WR position.
Tate caught 74 passes for 795 yards and four touchdowns last year, when he was traded from the Lions to the Eagles.
