Golden Tate on the Bubble?

14
Earlier this summer, Seattle Seahawks wide receiver Golden Tate commented in an interview with the Field Gulls blog that he foresees himself playing the versatile role in Darrell Bevell's offense that Percy Harvin played during Bevell's tenure with the Minnesota Vikings. But according to ESPN's John Clayton, Tate could be more like T.J. Houshmandzadeh than Harvin. "All I know is that there's an undrafted guy [rookie Doug Baldwin] that kind of has the same type of body and does the same types of things that he does," Clayton noted during an appearance on ESPN 710 Radio. "All of the sudden you might see an undrafted guy beat out a second-round pick." Clayton wouldn't rule out the possibility that the team would cut ties with the Notre Dame product after investing a second-round pick in him in 2010, either. "Pete Carroll is not afraid to make bold moves. ... Nothing surprises you when you get to these cuts," Clayton admitted. Tate is young enough that if he is cut, another team out there with a creative offensive guru at the helm could be licking their proverbial chops at the prospect of adding him to the roster. Meanwhile, ESPN NFC West blogger Mike Sando thinks the smart move for Seattle would be to keep Tate around, but with a caveat: Thought I would continue the WR fanpost spree. With golden tate falling out of favor would you offer up a 5th or even a 4th to put the slot receiver concerns to rest. Seems built for the slot, has the speed we all seem to covet, and could push Dwayne Harris or Ogletree. Worst case scenario we have given up a 5th... Best case... well think what the RHG could do with a dynamic developed Tate. Heck think what Robinson could do with the kid.
