Brandon Tate has re-signed with the Bengals, a league source tells Rand Getlin of Yahoo Sports (on Twitter). With the signing, Cincinnati has locked up their return man before he could be poached by another club. Terms of the deal are not yet known.
Tate, 26, had just one catch for six yards last season but he made his presence known on special teams. The 6’1″, 195 pound return man averaged 9.3 yards per punt return while averaging a solid 26.1 yards per kick return. Tate broke out for a 43 yard punt return for the Colts in December and torched the Jets for a 71 yard kick return earlier in the season.
