2013 Outlook
Depth Chart
With the release of former 1st round pick Mike Williams prior to training camp, the Seahawks opened up a spot in their starting lineup and it seems clear that Seattle would love for Tate to fill that position. Unfortunately, this seems more the case of a team handing over a starting position than a player earning it. In fact, Williamsí release is a curious and risky move given lead receiver Sidney Riceís injury history and leaves the team open to the possibility of starting Tate and 2nd year former undrafted free agent Doug Baldwin at some point in 2012Ö ouch. Tate, the teamís 2nd round choice in the 2010 draft, improved upon his poor rookie season with 33 receptions for 375 yards and a pair of touchdowns but there seems little evidence that he is ready to be a consistent performer. In 27 career games, he has topped 50 receiving yards just twice, a pretty low number for a player considered to be a game-breaker coming out of Notre Dame. Tate isnít worth owning in redraft leagues and is a marginal dynasty prospect.

News From The Past 90 Days
Golden Tate lands in Detroit     -- Wed Mar 12 3:35 pm --

5-year deal, $13.25 million guaranteed
The Detroit Lions got some much needed help for their receiving corps today, signing Golden Tate to a five-year contract. ESPN reported that Tateís deal is worth $31 million, with $13.25 million in guaranteed money. (Detroit Free Press)

FF Today's Take: Now that Nate Burleson has been released, Tate will slide into the starting lineup along side Calvin Johnson. While Tate moves into a pass-first offense he will have to share touches with two capable receiving running backs (Bush & Bell). The 900 yards and 5 TDs he scored in Seattle last season would be a good expectation in 2014.
Seahawks likely to cut Sidney Rice     -- Tue Feb 4 4:30 pm --

Teams needs resources to resign key defensive players
How can Seahawks sign Golden Tate & Michael Bennett with Thomas & Sherman extensions? Likely to cut Sidney Rice, ask Zach Miller to cut pay. (Ian Rapoport via Twitter)

FF Today's Take: The Seahawks have a number of players to resign and releasing Rice and asking Miller to reduce his $7 million salary cap number would be a step in the right direction. The Seahawks would save roughly $7.3 against the cap but cutting Rice.
