  Saints | Brandon Tate released    Fri Aug 31, 04:24 PM

New Orleans Saints WR Brandon Tate was released Friday, Aug. 31, according to a source.

Footballguys view: Tate was seen by some as having a good chance to make the team because of his return abilities. He might get a call during the season if a team loses their return specialist. This could mean Tommylee Lewis made the Saints again this year.

  Bills | Buffalo has several options at punt returner    Sun May 21, 06:45 PM

Buffalo Bills WR Brandon Tate, FS Micah Hyde and CB Tre'Davious White all worked as punt returners during organized team activities last week.

Footballguys view: Tate's best chance of making the 53-man roster comes on special teams. If he doesn't win the primary return man gig, then Tate isn't likely to stand out enough as a wide receiver to make the squad.

  Bills | Brandon Tate finds new home in Buffalo    Tue Sep 6, 12:30 PM

Free-agent WR Brandon Tate (Bengals) agreed to a deal with the Buffalo Bills on Tuesday, Sept. 6. Terms of the deal were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: Tate isn't going to do much as a receiver. However, he could help the Bills as a return man.

  Broncos | Brandon Tate works out for Denver    Sun Sep 4, 11:42 AM

Free-agent WR Brandon Tate (Bengals) recently worked out for the Denver Broncos, according to a source.

Footballguys view: Tate is merely a return man at this point in his career -- and the Broncos have an incredibly deep and talented group of WRs anyway. However, the team is looking for an upgrade at kick returner. Veteran Jordan Norwood is their punt returner, and he's a decent one at that -- but Norwood is not a great kick returner. The Broncos are likely just taking a look at Tate to upgrade their emergency list.

  Bengals | Depth at receiver for Bengals    Sun Jul 10, 02:37 PM

Cincinnati Bengals WRs Mario Alford, Jake Kumerow and Brandon Tate were named by director of player personnel Duke Tobin as receivers who can contribute behind WRs A.J. Green, Brandon LaFell and Tyler Boyd.

Footballguys view: Let's not get too crazy here. Tate is a speedy returner, but that's about it as he's not impressive as a receiver. Alford is a smaller (5'8" 180 pounds) receiver/returner who the Bengals picked up out of West Virginia in the seventh round of the 2015 NFL draft. Kumerow was a training camp stud last year as an undrafted rookie out of Wisconsin-Whitewater. The 6'5" 205 pound WR made a good impression and spent his rookie season learning on the Bengals practice squad. In deep dynasty, he's a player we like and the best one worth watching here for fantasy owners.

  Bengals | Free agency for three Bengals receivers     Tue Jan 26, 07:33 PM

Cincinnati Bengals WRs Marvin Jones, Mohamed Sanu and Brandon Tate are impending unrestricted free agents this offseason.

Footballguys view: The Bengals (like all teams) will have a little bit of time to sign their own free agents before the start of the new league year. While Tate may be gone, they could keep him around to keep contributing on special teams. Sanu is a fine possession receiver, but he may be looking for a larger role. Jones is the guy to keep around above the others, but his price tag is unknown at this time.

Free-agent WR Brandon Tate (Bengals) re-signed with the Cincinnati Bengals Wednesday, April 1. Terms of the contract were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: Tate has never done much as a receiver on the football field. The Bengals likely kept him around for depth at the position, and so he could help out as a return man on special teams.

Cincinnati Bengals WR Brandon Tate is expected to be the team's No. 3 wide receiver in Week 14, because WR James Wright (knee) is listed as doubtful.

Footballguys view: Even as the Bengals WR3, we're not expecting much from Tate. Even dynasty owners shouldn't have a lot of stock invested in Brandon Tate.

  Bengals | Andy Dalton hosts workout with receivers    Mon Jul 7, 08:44 PM

Cincinnati Bengals QB Andy Dalton invited WR A.J. Green, WR Marvin Jones, WR Mohamed Sanu, WR Brandon Tate, WR Ryan Whalen and WR Cobi Hamilton to Dallas for a throwing session Monday, July 7. 'It's just a chance to work on the little things before we get it going again,' Dalton said. 'Working on the routes, doing some of the things that need to get better.'

Footballguys view: It's good to see Dalton taking the initiative to lead as he is getting into the prime of his career. This could be his last year in Cincinnati, so other teams will be taking note of his off-field actions.

  Bengals | Will try to bring Brandon Tate back    Wed Mar 5, 03:51 PM

The Cincinnati Bengals will try to re-sign impending free-agent WR Brandon Tate this offseason.

Footballguys view: Tate has struggled to make an impact as a receiver, but he's a return man with speed and agility in the open field. The market won't be big for him, and the Bengals should be able to easily bring him back.

  Bengals | Brandon Tate agrees to terms    Sat Mar 23, 01:09 PM

The Cincinnati Bengals have agreed to terms with free-agent WR Brandon Tate (Bengals) on a one-year deal. Financial terms were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: Tate gives the team veteran depth at the WR position but is more of a return man than he is a pass catcher.

  Bengals | Might not bring Brandon Tate back    Wed Feb 27, 11:11 PM

Impending free-agent WR Brandon Tate (Bengals) might not be re-signed, as he was too inconsistent as a return man and he struggled as a receiver in 2012. If the team re-signs impending free-agent CB Adam Jones, he'll likely be used as the return man, making Tate's re-signing even less likely.

Footballguys view: Tate has never lived up to his potential as a pro. He's been plagued by injuries and inconsistencies throughout his career.

  Bengals | Mohamed Sanu a nice red zone target    Wed Nov 28, 08:20 PM

Cincinnati Bengals WR Mohamed Sanu has emerged as a great red zone target for QB Andy Dalton to take attention away from WR A.J. Green. Three of Sanu's four touchdowns have come with WR Andrew Hawkins (knee) out, and three of Sanu's TDs have come on third downs. Sanu has eight third down catches in his four starts. He has gone ahead of WRs Brandon Tate and Armon Binns on the depth chart. 'He's awesome in the red zone,' offensive coordinator Jay Gruden said. 'In zones he has a great feel for finding the holes and man-to-man he's got a big body (6-2, 210) where he can create separation for himself. He's everything we hoped he would be. It just took us too long a time to figure it out I guess.'

Footballguys view: Sanu is a good route runner with strong hands and concentration. He's emerging as a threat opposite superstar WR A.J. Green. We like Sanu as a WR3 of flex option this week.

  Bengals | Andrew Hawkins, Brandon Tate find end zone    Sun Sep 16, 09:31 PM

Cincinnati Bengals WRs Andrew Hawkins and Brandon Tate each posted their first touchdowns of the season in a Week 2 win against the Cleveland Browns. Hawkins had two grabs for 56 yards and the TD, while Tate led the team with 71 yards on three receptions with the score.

Footballguys view: Hawkins and Tate didn't get enough targets to be trusted in future weeks, but their quality speed and moves will help Andy Dalton retain solid fantasy backup QB value.

  Bengals | Armon Binns is best of rest    Mon Sep 10, 11:00 PM

Cincinnati Bengals WR Armon Binns recorded his first career NFL reception in Week 1 against the Baltimore Ravens. He finished with four catches for 28 yards. WR Brandon Tate had one grab for three yards.

Footballguys view: Binns and Tate were competing for the WR2 job opposite A.J. Green, but it was Andrew Hawkins who made more plays. We can't trust Tate because of his long injury history, and Binns is still a raw prospect after going undrafted in 2011.

  Bengals | Could have rotation at starting WR    Fri Aug 10, 02:56 PM

Cincinnati Bengals QB Andy Dalton indicated WRs Brandon Tate, Armon Binns and Mohamed Sanu may rotate at the starting wide receiver spot opposite WR A.J. Green. Offensive coordinator Jay Gruden said his playing calling would be the same with whichever receiver is in the game.

Footballguys view: We've heard conflicting reports about which WR is leading the way to win the WR2 job opposite A.J. Green. Tate has the speed and moves in the open field. Binns has the wingspan, big frame, and aggressive catching mentality. Sanu is the talented rookie who plays a lot like former Bengals WR T.J. Houshamandzadeh. Tate or Binns could win the starting job at the beginning of the season, but we think Sanu takes over at some point during the year.
