Giants activate Golden Tate, cut two receivers

The Giants are finally getting Golden Tate back on the field this week, and they had to make room for him Tuesday.

The team announced that Tate had been activated after his four-game suspension, and that they had released wide receivers Bennie Fowler and T.J. Jones.

They also signed linebacker Josiah Tauaefa after injuries thinned them out in the middle.

Adding Tate will be a significant boost for rookie quarterback Daniel Jones, giving him more experienced downfield threat while they wait for running back Saquon Barkley to return from his high ankle sprain.

Fowler had 12 catches in the first four games (third on the team), and Jones was handling punt returns.

  1. It’s still early, but maybe the Gettleman haters should walk back some of the criticism.

    – Giants are 2-2. Browns (who supposedly fleeced the Giants) are also 2-2.
    – Eli/Daniel transition smoother than expected.
    – Additions (Daniel Jones, Golden Tate, Kevin Zeitler) might work out well.

  2. WHenever Engram or OBJ were out, the other had a great game. Together, on the field, it was Engram with 9 and OBJ with 2 or vice versa. Maybe that wass Eli’s fault and/or the Olines fault. I never quite understood it but it did jump out at me. But I knew as long as Engram was healthy, Shephard would become more of a factor (he has) and now they have Tate.

    I do think Fowler should have been kept. He belongs in the League. On pace for 50 catches and you’re cut? Unless it’s a nod wink deal, he’ll be on someone’s roster by tomorrow.
