The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are reportedly expected to release another veteran player as part of their roster overhaul.
According to a report from ESPN’s Jeremy Fowler, the Buccaneers “are expected to” cut veteran tight end Cameron Brate. Aside from a brief stint on the New Orleans Saints’ practice squad in 2015, Brate has spent his entire professional career with the Bucs.
Needless to say, the Buccaneers offense stands to look considerably different in 2022, and not just because Tom Brady is retired.
Earlier this week, NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero reported that the Buccaneers are planning to release veteran running back Leonard Fournette. The latter has spent the last three seasons with Tampa Bay, helping them to a Super Bowl 55 championship in the 2020 season.
Tampa Bay is also likely to move on from future Hall of Famer Julio Jones, who had another injury-plagued season. Needless to say, it’ll be interesting to see how GM Jason Licht rebuilds the offense following a frustrating 2022 season.
In 126 career games, Brate has hauled in 273 receptions for 2,857 yards and 33 touchdowns. In the Bucs’ 2020 Super Bowl run, Brate hauled in 14 receptions for 175 yards and a touchdown. He also had a TD in the team’s blowout loss to the Dallas Cowboys in this year’s NFC Wild Card Round showdown.
Brate is third all-time in TD receptions for Buccaneers players, behind only Mike Evans (81) and Jimmie Giles (34).WANT MORE FROM TOTALPROSPORTS? FOLLOW US ON GOOGLE NEWS.
