NFL Rumors: Denver Broncos interested in Golden Tate

The Denver Broncos got their hats handed to them in the Super Bowl by the Seattle Seahawks and they may be dipping into the Seahawks pool of talent to fish out some help at wide receiver. While the Broncos had one of the best offenses in NFL history in 2013, they’re losing pieces to free agency and guys like Eric Decker are unlikely to return.

According to ESPN.com scribe Jeff Legwold, the Broncos could take a look at Golden Tate when free agency officially opens on Tuesday.

Seattle’s Golden Tate is not quite as big as Decker physically, but he’s a productive player who would flourish with a quarterback like Manning if he could get up to speed quickly in the call-it-on-the-fly work the Broncos do at the line of scrimmage. Tate could also play on the outside and offer something in the return game.

Tate hasn’t heard from the Seahawks yet, but there seems to be interest in bringing him back in 2014. That’s not a guarantee that Tate will be with Seattle next season, rather the team is just looking to see what market value for their receiver is before proceeding with an offer — or not.
