Golden Tate Signs With the Seahawks
The Seattle Seahawks and second-round draft pick Golden Tate have agreed to terms on a contract.
Tate confirmed the news via Twitter, posting: "Praise God!!! Terms and conditions have been reached for the seattle seahawks! Let's play ball!"
The National Football Post is reporting the contract is for four years and $3.261 million, including $1.471 million guaranteed.
Tate concluded a standout career at Notre Dame by winning the Biletnikoff Award last year as the nation's top wide receiver in his junior season.
He was voted a consensus First-Team All-American after racking up 1,496 yards and 15 touchdowns on 93 receptions for the Irish. In doing so, he set new single-season Notre Dame marks for catches and receiving yards and added a pair of rushing TDs as well as a punt return for a score.
Taken 60th overall in April's draft, the 5-foot-10, 199-pound 21-year-old ended his tenure at Notre Dame ranked second in touchdown receptions (26), tied for third in receptions (157) and second with 4,130 all-purpose yards despite playing just three years. Tate amassed a school-record 15 career 100- yard receiving games.
