Eagles GM Howie Roseman says Golden Tate is here for wins
The Philadelphia Eagles have been looking to add another offensive weapon, and General Manager Howie Roseman is high on what Golden Tate will bring. Many feet the Eagles have been frontrunners to land Le’Veon Bell. While it’s unlikely that this will happen now, they were able to make a great alternative move. Roseman believes this acquisition show his team is dedicated to making this a successful season.
“The message to our fans, to our players, to our coaches, to everyone in this organization is our foot’s always going to be on the gas. We’re always trying to win. …What we can do now is try to do that for this season and this moment,” Roseman told the Philadelphia Inquirer.
It’s never easy coming into a season as the defending champs, and Howie Roseman gets that. However, anything less than a Super Bowl victory is seen as a disappointment in the NFL, despite the fact that statistics show this is next to impossible. Golden Tate will give the Eagles a valuable offensive boost. Their 4-4 record ranks them second in the NFC East, and they’ll face a Dallas Cowboys team on Sunday that just added Amari Cooper. Both teams will strive to make use of their new weapons.
Tate has caught 44 passes for 517 yards and three touchdowns this season. One of his greatest skills is his ability to become a runner in the open field once he makes a catch. He has 259 YAC this season, which ranks him 13th in the NFL. Adding Tate to a receiving corps that features Alshon Jeffery and Zach Ertz should make for a dangerous trio.
