Hope he was cheap. Thought our other new signings were suppose to be return guys. Not much value at WR. We now have a ton of depth #4 and #5 WRs, a possible #3, and no legitimate #2.

The 3 running plays with him taking an option pitch were pretty cool as well.

Going to interesting to see how ST shapes the bottom end of the WR group. Tate for KR/PR, Holmes plays gunner. Might have to carry 6 just to make sure every base gets covered.

I feel like if given a real opportunity, he could be a nice WR in league. I like this signing better than all the other WR signed this offseason.

It will be interesting to see what he does with a full offseason.  Last year we signed him a couple days before the opener, I think.

 

re: both above, he's been in the league 8 years and played with Brady before, so doubt he's about to blossom as a WR, but please B Tate by all means prove me wrong

 

 

I'm seeing LB as the pick. Whaley even said LB is the biggest need on defense for McD. I think he specifically said weak side LB.

not saying he is who I would take, but Peppers is the LB/S hybrid that screams "good fit"

Very happy with this

 

Thought Tate was a legit number 3 for us last year......performed when he got the opportunity.

Holmes and Brown have upside. Holmes was the 32nd rated WR when he was last getting #2 snaps. Brown has talent to play the slot.

I think they are done at WR. Elite TE is a possibility.

Been asking this somewhat regularly: could Engram not fill WR2 and TE2 nicely?

I absolutely think this opens the door for a TE high

Nothing wrong with competition, plus some will be lost to injuries before the season. May the best man win.

Look to the draft for our #2.  No one is left in FA for that role.

CB is really thin for us right now. Safety & LB depth as well. Peppers scares me but could fit what we do.

I actually don't mind the receivers that we have. We are still a run first offense. Itd be nice to have Davis or Williams but a #10 cb and #44 lb/ss makes us instantly better.

IMO...

His career receiving numbers are something lke 65 receptions, 1,000 yds, 15.7 avg 6 TD's. Had a nice year for the Patriots a few years ago.24 catches 20 yd avg. Just a part-time receiver, not sure how i feel about a soon-to-be 30 year old returner

Seems like our needs LB are being overlooked by a lot of folks

Which "Bills re-sign Brandon Tate" thread is winning? I think this one has legs. I'm staying here.
