Buccaneers Keep TE Brate With Six-Year Deal
According to multiple reports, the Buccaneers are keeping their high-powered tight end corps intact for the long run. This after the team signed veteran Cameron Brate to a six year contract.

Brate, who was set to become a restricted free agent on Wednesday, will reportedly earn $41 million over the course of the deal, with $18 million in guaranteed money.

Retaining Brate means the team will continue to pair the veteran with second-year man-to-be O.J. Howard, giving the offense a potent scoring duo at the position.

Brate and Howard each had six touchdowns catches in 2017 to tie for the team lead.

Will they continue to share equally?

Brate's contract and Howard's first-round draft status suggests that will indeed be the case.

In addition, the pair will continue to work alongside Mike Evans, who signed a five-year contract last week.

That further puts the onus on Jameis Winston and head coach/play caller Dirk Koetter to maximize all that talent (along with DeSean Jackson and talented young wideout Chris Godwin). If they can do that, we'll be looking at a very fantasy-friendly passing attack.
