The New York Jets could pursue Seattle Seahawks impending free-agent WR Golden Tate this offseason, because general manager John Idzik is familiar with Tate from his time with the Seahawks.
Huddle Up: The Jets are searching far and wide for offensive playmaker help, and Tate will be an option if his pricetag falls out of the Seahawks' range. Fellow Seattle WR Sidney Rice could also be an option.

The Seattle Seahawks will try to re-sign impending free-agent WR Golden Tate if they have enough money to spend this offseason.
Huddle Up: Tate had a career-high 64 receptions for 898 yards and 5 TDs in leading the Seahawks, but Seattle most certainly isn't going to overpay for Tate given the other similarly talented wideouts on the roster.

Seattle Seahawks WR Golden Tate had 5 catches for 93 yards and 2 TDs on Monday, Oct. 28 in a 14-9 win over the St. Louis Rams.
Huddle Up: Tate's big grab was an 80-yard catch and scoring run in which he taunted St. Louis defenders while sprinting down the sideline. The taunts and the resulting unsportsmanlike penalty didn't garner Tate many points but his recent surge has translated into some fantasy points as he has notched 19 of his 32 catches and all 3 of his TD grabs over the past 3 games. Tate could be in line for even more work if fellow WR Sidney Rice's knee injury -- suffered in the second quarter Monday night -- proves serious.

Seattle Seahawks WR Golden Tate has been the most impressive player in training camp showing big-play ability.
Huddle Up: Tate has had the opportunity to shine with Percy Harvin out and Sidney Rice in Switzerland. He put up decent numbers in that offense a year ago and would be the prime candidate to fill Harvin's role while he is sidelined; there's definitely fantasy upside there.

The Seattle Seahawks have not given a long-term contract offer to WR Golden Tate at this point.
Huddle Up: Tate is coming off a career year (45-688-7) but that hardly warrants a long-term commitment, especially considering Seattle still felt compelled to go out and add FA wideout Percy Harvin this offseason.

Seattle Seahawks WR Golden Tate is playing on the last year of his rookie contract. He was second on the team with 45 receptions in 2012.
Huddle Up: Tate is definitely trending in the right direction as his receiving numbers have went up in each of his first 3 seasons, finishing with 45-688-7 last year. For 2013, however, the 'Hawks have added the versatile and talented Percy Harvin to the WR mix, and Tate might find himself hard pressed to maintain the upward climb with another mouth to feed in an offense that's not expected to be overly pass heavy.
