The Titans have signed wide receiver Golden Tate to the practice squad, via NFL.com’s Tom Pelissero. The veteran wide receiver has yet to play this year, but he could be a quick promotion away from making his 2021 debut.

“I would love to go back home to Tennessee,” Tate told SiriusXM NFL Radio back in June. “[I’d also like to go to] Indy, over with Carson Wentz. Obviously, the L.A. Rams would be fantastic with Stafford too.”

Tate, a native of Hendersonville, Tennessee, has gotten his wish. The 33-year-old saw time in 23 games for the Giants over the past two seasons, collecting 84 receptions for 1,064 yards and eight touchdowns. Before that (and the PED suspension), he captured a Super Bowl championship with the Seahawks and made the Pro Bowl with the Lions in 2014. From 2014-17 he had at least 1,000 yards in three of four seasons, but the expectations are a bit lower at this stage of his career.

Meanwhile, the Titans have released fellow one-time star Adrian Peterson from the 53-man roster. So, if all goes well for Tate, he could earn a quick promotion to the varsity squad.
