The Giants' newest wide receiver has some high hopes for the eventual Eli Manning to Daniel Jonestransition.
Golden Tate, whom the Giants signed this offseason after trading Odell Beckham Jr. to the Browns, spoke highly of the rookie quarterback in a SiriusXM NFL Radio interivew on Thursday.
The 30-year-old receiver said that Jones should benefit a great deal from learning behind Manning and envisions a Brett Favre to Aaron Rodgers-type changing of the guard.
"We're hoping that he can respond to pressure," Tate said of Jones. "If Eli breaks a shoelace or something (and misses a play), that he won't even miss a beat. The good news with Dan's situation is he is sitting right behind a Hall of Fame-type quarterback, so he is going to have an opportunity to learn some incredible tools that can help him in the future. I hope it's kind of like that Brett Favre toAaron Rodgers kind of situation eventually."
