Wide receiver Golden Tate, a second-round draft pick from Notre Dame, and the Seattle Seahawks have agreed on a four-year, $3.261 million contract, NFL Network insider Michael Lombardi confirmed Wednesday. The deal includes a $1 million signing bonus.
Tate had sent a message via Twitter that stated: "Praise God!!! Terms and conditions have been reached for the seattle seahawks! Let's play ball!"
The 5-foot-10, 199-pound Tate won college football's Fred Biletnikoff Award as the nation's top receiver in 2009, when he set Notre Dame records with 93 catches for 1,496 yards.
