Count this former Giant as a true admirer of Daniel Jones.
Former New York Giants wide receiver Golden Tate appeared on NFL Total Access and had only positive things to say about his former quarterback and team. “I enjoyed DJ [Daniel Jones] and I think he has all the tools to be successful for a long time,” he remarked while speaking about the team.

The former Pro Bowler lauded Jones’ skillset and said the team could be “special” if they remained healthy. An interesting takeaway from his comments, however, was about how he envisioned getting the most out of Daniel Jones. Tate went on to say “They just need to let him loose.

Tate’s comments were interesting considering his tenure with the Giants was a rocky one, to say the least. In 2020, he was benched after yelling “Throw me the ball!” into a camera, subsequently apologizing to his teammates. This would make the former Super Bowl champion one of those guilty of telling Jones what decisions to make as he remarked.
