Tate, who is fully guaranteed $23 million, caught 74 passes for 795 yards and four touchdowns for the Lions and Eagles last season.

Tate fills a void the Giants had at the wide receiver position following their decision to trade star Odell Beckham the Cleveland Browns ahead of the official start of free agency on Wednesday.

Tate is coming off a poor campaign in which he was dealt from Detroit to Philadelphia midway through the season.

Tate acknowledged the signing on Twitter, tweeting an image of the "I love New York" logo and making it his new profile picture. Entering his sixth National Football League season, his career includes previous stints with the Seattle Seahawks (2017), Houston Texans (2015-16) and the New York Jets (2014).

However, the 30-year-old averaged 93 catches and 1,066 yards from 2014 through 2017, and will add a much-needed veteran presence to New York's wide receiver group.

Tate told reporters after the season that if he didn't stay with Philadelphia, he hoped to latch on with a contender. I don't want to go to somewhere that's trying to rebuild.... He played in two seasons (2016-17) for the Giants, producing 73 tackles and one interception.

But when it was all said and done, veteran Golden Tate opted to remain in the NFC East - this after a half of a season with the Philadelphia Eagles.

Both players were primarily special team performers in 2018.
