Top Cameron Brate News

  • Buccaneers' Cameron Brate: Back on top of depth chart

    Brate is currently the No. 1 tight end on the Buccaneers depth chart in the immediate aftermath of Rob Gronkowski's retirement announcement earlier this week, Joey Knight of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

    Brate may not be atop the heap for long, however, at least not without sharing that spot with one of several veteran tight ends still available on the open market. His last season with over 500 snaps from scrimmage came back in 2018, and heading into his age-32 campaign, Brate is most effective when sharing time with another capable pass-catching option at the position. Rookie Cade Otton (ankle) could also eventually eat into Brate's snaps depending on how quickly he picks up the team's offense.

  • Buccaneers' Cameron Brate: Remains top TE option for now

    Brate slots in as the No. 1 tight end on the Buccaneers' depth chart for the time being with Rob Gronkowski still non-committal about a return and O.J. Howard having departed for the Bills in free agency.

    That said, the veteran's standing at the top of the heap isn't likely to last even as far as training camp. As Zac Blobner of 95.3 WDAE St. Petersburg notes, Gronkowski alluded to there being a "very good chance" of his return to the Buccaneers in 2022, a possibility that likely increased in the wake of Tom Brady's recent decision to come out of a brief retirement for at least one more season. Additionally, the team is likely to focus on the tight end position with at least one of its draft picks this April, and there are at least a couple of free-agent options still on the market that could presumably slot in ahead of Brate were they to be signed.

  • Buccaneers' Cameron Brate: Agrees to restructure contract

    The Buccaneers and Brate agreed Wednesday to restructure his contract to a two-year, $8 million deal, Jenna Laine of ESPN.com reports.

    The six-year contract that Brate signed in 2018 locked him in with Tampa Bay through the 2023 season, but the restructure lowers the cap hits in both of the next two years. The statuses of Rob Gronkowski and/or O.J. Howard remain in flux with both free agents this offseason, but at the very least, the newly un-retired Tom Brady has Brate at his disposal at tight end in 2022.

  • Buccaneers' Cameron Brate: One catch in season-ending loss

    Brate secured one of three targets for nine yards during the Buccaneers' 30-27 loss to the Rams in their NFC divisional-round matchup Sunday.

    Brate had a minimal role in the season-ending defeat, even with Breshad Perriman (hip) and Cyril Grayson (hamstring) sitting out the contest and thereby thinning out the Buccaneers' pass-catching corps further. The veteran tight end remains under contract for the next two seasons at cap hits of $7.3 and $7.9 million, but it remains to be seen what type of offensive overhaul the team might undergo this offseason should Tom Brady decide to call it a career and Brate's position mate Rob Gronkowski opts to join him in retirement.

  • Buccaneers' Cameron Brate: Three catches in playoff opener

    Brate brought in all three targets for 29 yards during the Buccaneers' 31-15 win over the Eagles in an NFC wild-card matchup Sunday.

    The veteran tight end filled his usual complementary role effectively and checked in third on the team in receptions on the afternoon. Brate's catch total was his highest since Week 12 against the Colts, and he should be set for modest volume once again in next Sunday's divisional-round matchup against the Rams.

  • Buccaneers' Cameron Brate: Solid complementary numbers in '21

    Brate, who brought in two of three targets for 12 yards in the Buccaneers' 41-17 win over the Panthers in Week 18, finished the 2021 regular season with 30 receptions (57 targets) for 245 yards and four touchdowns across 17 games.

    Brate's numbers were essentially right in line with his average figures over the three prior campaigns, a stretch during which he'd tallied 31.3 catches for 294 yards and four touchdowns per season. The veteran tight end continued to serve as the clear No. 2 option at the position behind Rob Gronkowski, and with the Buccaneers entering the postseason with a short-handed receiving corps, he could potentially see an uptick in involvement as Tampa Bay attempts another championship run.

  • Buccaneers' Cameron Brate: Another TD in Week 17 win

    Brate brought in two of three targets for five yards and a touchdown in the Buccaneers' 28-24 win over the Jets on Sunday.

    Brate was able to make good use of his scant opportunities, finding the end zone for the second time in as many games on a four-yard grab late in the third quarter. Brate's targets will likely continue to be limited in Week 18 and in the postseason, but Antonio Brown's expected release should theoretically open up more targets.

  • Buccaneers' Cameron Brate: Gets into end zone in win

    Brate brought in two of four targets for 11 yards and a touchdown in the Buccaneers' 32-6 win over the Panthers on Sunday.

    The veteran tight end didn't really see an appreciable uptick in targets despite the absences of multiple pass-catching options, but he did find the end zone on a four-yard grab late in the first half. Brate has three straight two-catch efforts and touchdowns in two of his last four contests, giving him some value in very deep formats for those desperate at tight end in their championship games in Week 17.

  • Buccaneers' Cameron Brate: Another two catches

    Brate brought in two of four targets for 22 yards in the Buccaneers' 9-0 loss to the Saints on Sunday night.

    Brate produced a pair of receptions for the second straight game and failed to crack 30 yards for the 11th consecutive contest in the process. The veteran tight end's fantasy needle might be moved just slightly with the season-ending injury to Chris Godwin (knee) and the possible Week 16 absences of Leonard Fournette and Mike Evans with hamstring injuries, but even in such a scenario, he's unlikely to see more than a couple of targets over the 3.9 he's averaging thus far this season.

  • Buccaneers' Cameron Brate: Pair of grabs in win

    Brate brought in two of four targets for 11 yards in the Buccaneers' 33-27 overtime win over the Bills on Sunday.

    Brate played on just 25 percent of the offensive snaps (21 snaps). The veteran tight end is still clearly ahead of non-factor O.J. Howard (five snaps), but as long as Rob Gronkowski is healthy, Brate is only a touchdown-or-bust option each week.

  • Buccaneers' Cameron Brate: Finds end zone on one catch

    Brate secured his only target for a three-yard touchdown in the Buccaneers' 30-17 win over the Falcons on Sunday.

    The veteran tight end played just 19 percent of snaps (13), but he was able to make good use of his one reception. Brate's three-yard score late in the first quarter served as his second touchdown of the season, matching his 2020 total, which was achieved over 16 games. His visit to the end zone notwithstanding, he remains an option only in very deep PPR formats and as a DFS dart throw due to his typically low volume and limited role behind Rob Gronkowski.

  • Buccaneers' Cameron Brate: Makes trio of catches in win

    Brate secured three of four targets for 23 yards in the Buccaneers' 38-31 win over the Colts on Sunday.

    The tight ends were a focal point of the air attack against a Colts defense adept at limiting wideout production, and although Brate's totals were a far cry from those of Rob Gronkowski's, he still turned in a serviceable line for those holding him in very deep PPR formats. Brate now has multiple grabs in three of the past four contests, although Sunday's tally represented his best figure during that period.
