With one of Seattle’s top free agents signed and sealed to stay with the Seahawks, another one could have a deal soon.
Receiver Golden Tate says on Twitter that that “[t]hings are starting to heat up.”
He doesn’t specify whether that means with the Seahawks or someone else. As to defensive end Michael Bennett, the Seahawks got serious once another suitor was seriously pursuing the player.
The No. 26 player on the PFT Free Agent Hot 100, Tate entered the league as a second-round pick of the 2010 draft. He had a career high 898 receiving yards in 2013, on a career-high 64 catches. Tate also returned 51 punts, generating an average of 11.5 yards per return.
Tate can sign with the Seahawks at any time. As of 4:00 p.m. ET Tuesday, he can sign with anyone else.
