Golden Tate has been Seattle’s “most impressive player.”
The Seattle Times reports talented Seahawks wide receiver Golden Tate has been the “most impressive player in training camp so far.”
Competing against standout cornerbacks Brandon Browner and Richard Sherman, the 24-year-old Tate has “looked like a player capable of becoming a star.”
Taken out of Notre Dame with the 60th pick in the 2010 draft, Tate is entering the final season of a four-year contract worth $3.2 million.
Catching 101 balls for 1,297 yards and 10 touchdowns in 42 games as a Seahawk, head coach Pete Carroll has publicly expressed his intention to design more plays for the former Irishman.
With featured weapon Percy Harvin indefinitely shelved due to a torn hip labrum, the 5-foot-10, 202 pound Tate will certainly become one of Russell Wilson’s favorite targets.
Removed from an 11-5 campaign, Tate, Wilson, Sidney Rice and Marshawn Lynch give the Seahawks an incredibly “impressive” offensive attack.
Backed by a stifling defense, Seattle has a legitimate opportunity to overtake the San Francisco 49ers in the NFC West.
Destined for success as an overall unit, expect Golden Tate to individually become “a star” in the “Rain City” this autumn.
