After having Adam Humphries sign with the Titans, it seems the Patriots have shifted their attention towards Golden Tate.

According to NFL Media's Ian Rapoport, the Patriots have showed interest in the veteran wide receiver. He also mentioned the Steelers showing interest as well.

This isn't a big surprise, as Tate remains unsigned and he was the receiver many connected to New England before the start of free agency.

Tate was traded to the Eagles from the Lions at the deadline this past season, and finished with 74 catches for 795 yards and four touchdowns between the two teams. In his 10-year career, he's had three, 1,000-yard seasons.

Last month Tate said he would love to the play with Tom Brady and the Patriots.

“I would love it. I would love it,” Tate said on the ProStyle podcast with former NFL wide receiver Earl Bennett. “That organization, they have proven to be champions year-in and year-out. They work hard for sure, but you know where you’re going to be at the end of the season: you’re going to be not only looking at the playoffs, but you’re looking at maybe a first-round bye with this team. You gotta admire that organization, they do things right, they’ve been doing it for a long, long, long time.”

Tate will turn 31 in August, but appears to have a few good years left in him.
