Patriots Sign RB Brandon Bolden; Re-Sign CB Jason McCourty

And now GM Dave Gettleman has signed a 31-year-old slot receiver, even though the team has a number of other weaknesses on its roster, including one of the worst pass rushes in the NFL.

Golden Tate has agreed to a four-year, $37.5 million deal with the New York Giants.

Let's be 100 percent real here, the Giants should be in full-on tank mode after trading Beckham.

In each of the past eight seasons, among all wide receivers with at least 50 targets, Tate has ranked top-four in missed tackles forced per reception. Tate has since played for the Lions and very briefly - after a midseason trade - for the Eagles. The 10th-year pro tallied one interception and 14 pass breakups - including a pivotal PBU against Brandin Cooks in the Super Bowl - and ranked second behind All-Pro Stephon Gilmore in snaps played among Patriots cornerbacks.

Another key factor in Liverpool's continued ability to stay in the race at home and overseas is the form of Sadio Mane . With Mohamed Salah struggling to replicate his goal-scoring feats of last season, Mane has stepped up a gear.

The Giants are in desperate need of wide receiver help following the Beckham Jr. trade.

Less than 48 hours after agreeing to trade away their star wide receiver, NY has reached an agreement on a four-year deal with former Eagles WR Golden Tate, his agents at CAA Football announced on Twitter Thursday evening.

The Eagles re-signed defensive end Brandon Graham to a three-year deal prior to the veteran hitting the free agent market. At 30, this is likely the last big contract Tate will command.

The Giants' plan? Still not clear.
