Bills' Brandon Tate: Stays the course in Buffalo
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tate re-signed with the Bills on Monday, ESPN's Mike Rodak reports.

The Bills have brought in a whole host of depth wideouts over the last week, but Tate has better special teams skills than all of them, which will likely be his ticket to making the final roster. Tate had the NFL's sixth-best kickoff return average among qualifiers in 2016 with 22.83 yards per return and was fifth best in punt returns a 11.58, so it's not hard to figure out where his value lies. Even with a new coaching staff in town, the team didn't want to let him get away.

Bills' Brandon Tate: Ready to shop return skills
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Tate, who ranked in the top 10 in both kickoff and punt return averages in 2016, is set to become an unrestricted free agent this offseason.

If Rex Ryan was still the Bills coach, it'd be more likely that the speedy Tate would be back. However, a new regime is about to take over, so all three facets of the team are about to take on a different look. That said, the Bills may try to bring back Tate anyway, as there aren't many returners with his ability, plus he's adequate enough as a receiver to fill the No. 5 spot. He's also said he'd like to stay in Buffalo. Tate caught eight passes for 115 yards in 2016, but never found the end zone as a receiver, runner, or returner.

Bills' Brandon Tate: Key role in Week 11 win
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Tate had two catches for 48 yards while averaging 33 yards on two kickoff returns and 11 yards on three punt returns during Sunday's win over the Bengals.

Tate ended up playing 26 offensive snaps, mostly because Robert Woods left the game for good in the first half. That's a situation worth watching for those in leagues where players get points for both receiving yards and return yards, as Tate could be forced into an offensive role if neither Woods or Sammy Watkins can return for the Week 12 game against Jacksonville. In any matter, Tate was able to top 5,000 career return yards in Sunday's win, and perhaps that felt just a little better coming against his former team.
