Giants Tell Golden Tate To Stay Home Wednesday After On-field Outbursts; Tate “Likes” Tweet Saying Giants Should Cut Him

Giants wide receiver Golden Tate was told to stay home from the team’s walk-through Wednesday as a form of discipline after what occurred Monday night.

Tate caught a touchdown pass late in the fourth quarter of Monday night’s loss to the Bucs and then turned to a camera and yelled “throw me the ball.” The touchdown reception was just his second catch of the night.

Tate’s wife wrote on her Instagram story that Tate “was open the entire game” and was “underutilized” by the team.

“I spoke to Golden at length today and we’re dealing internally with a lot of things,” coach Joe Judge said. “He is not going to be at the walk-through today but he will be back in the building and practicing with us the remainder of the week. It will be business as usual.”

On his day away from the facility, Tate “liked” a couple of tweets, one of a fan asking the Giants to cut him and a second of a fan wondering why he’s not being utilized properly.


The Giants added a wide receiver on Wednesday when they claimed former 49ers second-round pick Dante Pettis.

Tate has 22 catches for 268 yards and two touchdowns on the season. He’s in the second year of a four-year, $37 million deal with the team, but his contract has no guaranteed money left after this year.  The Giants reportedly shopped him leading up to the trade deadline but found no takers.
