Bleacher Report says the Pittsburgh Steelers would be a good landing spot for Golden Tate


Here we go again... Every season since Golden Tate tweeted the word Steelers everyone thinks the Steelers are a good landing spot for him. It happens like clockwork 2 or 3 times every offseason where someone says Golden Tate would be a great fit for the Steelers. Well if JuJu Smith-Schuster leaves, the Steelers will be looking for a new slot receiver and Tate could fit in, but the Steelers already have James Washington and could draft a younger wide receiver in the NFL draft.

Bleacher Report says the Pittsburgh Steelers would be a good realistic landing spot for Golden Tate. If JuJu Smith-Schuster walks in the offseason they say the Steelers will need to look for a veteran receiver. Cap-rich teams will be inclined to look for wide receivers like JuJu Smith-Schuster and Curtis Samuel on the free-agent market, but the 32-year old former pro-bowler is a year removed from scoring six touchdowns in 11 games in a mediocre Giants offense.


Pittsburgh could be the right setting, with the right quarterback to make Tate shine. The problem is he is 32 years old and he has been with how many different football teams now? If he were to take a friendly contract he could be a great option, but again he's much older now. Wouldn't the Steelers want to bring in more young blood to fill in that young receiving group? I mean they could bring in a veteran to help teach them, but he could be a bit costly. I would rather the Steelers draft a new wide receiver than bring an older one into the system at this point. Plus they also have Chase Claypool, Dionate Johnson, and James Washington who are capable of running the show.
