Tate is Around The League's No. 5 rated wide receiver and No. 45 overall free agent heading into March.
"I did the tough part, and that's performing on the field," Tate said. "And hopefully, I can call Seattle home for a few more years. But we'll see. I know that coach Carroll has expressed that he would like to have me on the team, and I have expressed that I would like to stay on this team because I see this team winning for a long time. But we will see. Only time will tell.''
Cooper recently signed a five-year, $25 million contract. Tate, however, shaded himself in a different light than Cooper.
"I'm not in any way comparing my situation to his because they are very, very different," Tate said.
