We only had three receivers two weeks ago, now there are seven.  At least there isn't a shortage anymore.   I still think a #2 needs to be added somewhere.   I would imagine that Tate is competing with Butler, Powell and Washington for roster spots in preseason.

i think they brought 13 WR to camp last year. Long way to go.

LB is not a position of strength, but it's so far down the list of gaping, glaring holes that I am honestly confused why people keep interjecting about it.

I disagree but respect

Best Return Man we've had in several years. Great re-signing and this makes my day, very happy Brandon Tate is back!! The only problem is now we have (6) #4 wr's. I still want Corey Davis!

i like this move.

 

now i really want to see us pick up another cb and a wr.

 

a right tackle is too late, a safety is going to be tough.

 

i can roll in to next season with who we have at safety already.

Very solid, good all-around football player.  You need guys like this to have a winning team.   Reliable guy.

average move..he started on fire, but faded badly at the end of the year. 

 

Doesnt hurt, doesnt make us a contender.

@buffalobills
He's back! We've re-signed receiver and return man Brandon Tate. #GoBills
http://m.buffalobill...ee-f8dca688ec16

.@buffalobills WR/KR Brandon Tate ranked second in the AFC last season with a punt return average of 11.6 yards.

 

He plays smart....because he was well coached by Belichick.

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


Or screams Maybin. Nothing like a 1st round tweener. Eric Flowers, Maybin - just no.

i like this move.

Mostly yes but RT is just in a bad way. I can't take another year of our RT frozen in carbinite against any speed rusher.

I can't tell you how much more comfortable i felt with Tate back there fielding kickoffs and punt returns as opposed to when the Bills had McKelvin back there.
