Giants Willing To Trade G Kevin Zeitler & WR Golden Tate


Adam Schefter of ESPN reports that the Giants are willing to trade “older, high-priced veterans” such as G Kevin Zeitler and WR Golden Tate.

The Giants have already traded OLB Markus Golden to the Cardinals and while the NFC East is wide open right now, it would make sense for New York to shed some salary and pick up some draft capital in the process if teams are interested in adding veteran help. 

Zeitler, 30, is a former first-round pick of the Bengals out of Wisconsin back in 2012. He played out the final year of his four-year, $7.544 million rookie contract when the Bengals elected to pick up his fifth-year option. 

From there, the Browns signed Zeitler to a five-year, $60 million deal that included $31.5 million guaranteed in 2017. He was later traded to the Giants.

In 2020, Zeitler has appeared in seven games for the Giants and started all of them at right guard.

Tate, 32, is a former second-round pick of the Seahawks back in 2010. He played out his rookie contract in Seattle before signing a five-year, $31 million contract that included $13.25 million with the Lions.

Tate was traded to the Eagles and made a base salary of $7 million for the 2018 season. The Giants later signed him to a four-year, $37.5 million contract that includes $23 million fully guaranteed.

In 2020, Tate has appeared in six games and caught 20 passes for 195 yards receiving and one touchdown.
