Brandon Tate claimed by Bengals

AP

Brandon Tate never quite learned how to be a receiver in New England, but he was a solid return guy.

Those skills can now be used in Cincinnati.  Mike Florio reports via a league source that the Bengals have claimed him.

We haven’t heard the corresponding move as of yet, but expect to see a lot of waiver wire transactions in the coming hours.

  1. YES pick up one of those return guys now that the kickoff is more or less null and void. Great move Mike.

  2. He’s just a terrible fit for an option route system. Chad 85 might be as well. . .

    I can see him doing things for the Bengals. He wasn’t terrible in NE.

  3. Tate’s worth taking a chance on for a team in need of a returner – and he might even some day be a decent backup WR.

    The Pats have both of those needs well covered without him.

  4. Wow! Mike Brown the personnel genius? Not only does he stick Ocho-cancer with a top conference opponent, but he nabs their only deep threat for free. Tate will outperform Chad by at least 2-to-one in terms of yards and TDs this year.

    ….your comments are beyond stupid. The amount of posts you leave on here also leads me to believe you lack any kind of social life. I kind of pity you.

    You go out of your way to insult somebody based on a team that they root for on a football blog. I REALLY pity you.

  7. You guys kill me… You act like the Bengals have been in last place for years…

    Im pretty sure 2 years ago we SWEPT the AFC North…

    Sure MB is not the best guy in football.. And we could use some of those fancy practice tents everyone else has.. but .. A place where careers die? Hardly that would be Oakland 🙂

  8. ROFL!!!! @

    Belichick: Hey Marvin, Tell me how my Brandon Tate.

    On a separate note:
    Lots of ignorance on here. Basing talent on Madden ratings? Really???

    I’ll take that bet……

    Seriously, I’ll take it.

    Your Patriots hating has rendered you completely stupid. If Belichick thought Tate was ever going to amount to anything as a receiver, he never would have let him go.

    Their only “deep threat”….. really?

    Like I said, every successive each post from you gets progressively dumber.

  10. So a guy who can’t run routes gets picked up by a team where the QB can’t hit you if you do run routes. Might work!
