Giants beat writer Ralph Vacchiano said, technically, Golden Tate is the replacement for Odell Beckham. They're not expecting a Beckham-like season from him, but they paid for a receiver who had been a pretty consistent, 90-catch, 1,000-yard guy since 2014, until last year (when he was traded midseason).

Vacchiano went on to say they don't need 90-1,000 yard production out of him, but they expect something close. He has to be dangerous enough to take the pressure off Shepard (who we just posted a story where Vacchiano called him the team's top WR) and good enough that the Giants don't have to be reminded all season about the guy they let get away.
