Soon-to-be free agent wide receiver Golden Tate told Ian Furness and Jason Puckett of Sports Radio 950 KJR in Seattle on Tuesday that he’s willing to take a discount to re-sign with the Seahawks.
“I probably shouldn’t even say this right now but I’m going to say it anyway just because I love Seattle, honestly, I would rather take a little less to be happy and win ball games than to take way more and go to a crappy city where the fans don’t give a crap about the team. You win a game once a month of something like that. I would much rather stay in the situation that I have now for a little less than to go and try to break the bank somewhere else,” Tate said.
While Tate is willing to take less money, he wants a fair deal.
“At the same time, I don’t want to be disrespected by any means,” Tate said. “I want to be able to take care of myself and my family for the rest of my life at the same time. We’ll see. That’s what I have my agent for. I plan to have some conversations with Pete (Carroll) and the G.M. (John Schneider) and hopefully we can work something out.”
