Golden Tate bothered by people bringing up his age in regard to his next contract

Wide receiver Golden Tate has made no secret of his desire to sign a new contract with the Lions this offseason, but nothing has materialized to this point.

During an appearance on Sirius XM NFL Radio, Tate said that his greatest frustration with that state of affairs is that his age might be a factor in the team’s decision.

The only thing that really bothers me with this contract is that now people are trying to use 29 going 30 against me and I don’t think that’s fair because I haven’t shown any decline, Tate said.

Two of the most impressive players so far in Las Vegas have been New York Knicks forward Kevin Knox (the No. 9 pick, Bryan Little Authentic Jersey highlighted Thursday along with second-rounder Mitchell Robinson by ESPN’s AndrĂ© Snellings) and Clippers point guard Shai Gilgeous-Alexander (the No. 11 pick). Knox and Gilgeous-Alexander played on last season’s disappointing Kentucky team that began the campaign ranked No. 5 in the Associated Press poll and ended it as a 5-seed that lost in the Sweet 16.

The article doesn’t say that McAdoo believes Eli remains the answer. Indeed, there’s no comment from McAdoo on whether the Giants should have written a big check to one of an unprecedented number of free-agent quarterbacks. Should new coach Pat Shurmur, for example, have tried to carry Case Keenum with Shurmur from Minnesota? Should the Giants have made a play for Kirk Cousins? Should they have traded for Alex Smith?

Until we know how McAdoo feels about the available veteran options, we won’t know how he really feels about the decision to keep Eli. Or, alternatively, until McAdoo directly addresses his views on the Authentic Cleveland Browns Jersey team’s decision to keep Eli.

Given McAdoo’s sudden move to embrace talking like it’s a bottle of Brylcreem or a suit ten sizes too big, chances are that’s coming.

The Indians have been linked to Machado, but they’ve faded to the fringes of late. Machado would have to shift to third base in Cleveland because of Francisco Lindor. The Indians and other contenders think Machado would make the move with the right club. But his public pronouncements to this point certainly indicate a desire to stay at short if possible.
