Golden Tate started to make a name for himself in the latter half of the 2012 season. Tate led all Seahawks receivers in yards and touchdowns in the second half of the season.
Tate was selected in the second round of the 2010 draft, he only has one year remaining of his rookie contract. The 2013 season is obviously a pretty big one for the 4th year receiver.
Tate has expressed concern with the Seahawks’ new addition of Percy Harvin.
Pete Carroll made it clear that Tate will still be a vital part of the offense:
“Golden is really ready to be a terrific football player. We love what he does, and we just have to get him the ball more and spread it around to him. It took him a couple years to get going and now he’s legit for us and we love what he brings. And he does different things than what Percy does. Percy is a very unique quality guy. I think it’s going to fit together just fine.”
Tate is expected to be lined up outside, while Harvin will be used mainly as a slot receiver. The Seahawks receivers are going to be a fun group to watch.
