Golden Tate Can Set Good Example By Re-Signing With Seattle Seahawks
Maybe Golden Tate is in a good mood because he just won the Super Bowl? Whatever the reason, Seattle Seahawks fans have to be liking what they’re hearing from the wide receiver as he gets set to become a free agent here in a few weeks.
“I probably shouldn’t even say this right now, but I’m going to say it anyway just because I love Seattle. Honestly, I would rather take a little less to be happy and win ballgames than to take way more and go to a crappy city where the fans don’t give a crap about the team. You win a game once a month or something like that. I’d much rather stay in the situation that I have now for a little less than to go and try to break the bank somewhere else,” Tate said on a radio show Tuesday.
That’s right, you just read a quote from a professional athlete who’s willing to take less money to win. It’s something that doesn’t happen enough in today’s sports world. However, there are still no guarantees that Tate will be back in Seattle next season.
The Seahawks have numerous contact situations to address in the next few weeks and the general consensus is that they don’t have enough to pay Tate even close to what he’ll get offered from other teams.
It should also be noted that the WR added that he didn’t want to be ‘disrespected’ with the offer from Seattle.
His current contract that’s expiring was worth $3.4 million over four years. Clearly, he’s going to be due a substantial raise.
Seattle fans will have to hope that Tate is truly willing to ‘walk the walk’ after his comments. It’s one thing to say you’ll play for less, it’s another to actually follow through on statements like that. Personally, I’m hoping Tate does stay in Seattle for less. The more players we have have subscribing to that theory, the better.

Considering the team’s recent injury history at the wide receiver position, some depth doesn’t hurt either.
