One of the more intriguing stories of cutdown day has a post script. As reported by others and as we’ve confirmed with our own eyes, former Patriots receiver Brandon Tate drew a trio of waiver claims after being released.
The 2009 third-rounder prompted the Bengals, Cardinals, and Jets to claim his contract. The Bengals, by virtue of having the worst record of the three teams in 2010, secured Tate’s services.
If Tate had gone to the Jets, it would have continued the seemingly endless New York/Boston back-and-forth in the AFC East.
