John Clayton Thinks That Seahawks Could Part Ways With WR Golden Tate

ESPN's John Clayton mentioned on Tuesday that the Seattle Seahawks could cut wide receiver Golden Tate, according to ESPN Seattle's Matt Pittman. With the season just weeks away, NFL teams are preparing their final rosters for the 2011 season and could make some surprising moves (in both signings and cuts).

Tate has had a relatively disappointing preseason thus far, recording only 24 receiving yards on four catches. He joined the Seahawks organization last year with big expectations when the team nabbed him with a second-round pick (60th overall pick) in the 2010 NFL Draft. Tate didn't live up to the hype, unfortunately, and had just 227 yards with zero touchdowns through 11 games.

According to Clayton, the Seahawks have a similar player in undrafted rookie Doug Baldwin and could use him as a replacement for Tate. Coach Pete Carroll, however, stated this offseason that he has plans to incorporate Tate into a bigger role of the Seahawks' offense this year. It would certainly be surprising if the Seahawks gave up on their second-round draft pick just one year in, but it's the NFL. Anything can happen.
