According to reports, the deal is worth $40.8 million with $18 million guaranteed. It likely signals that the Bucs will be running with a two-tight-end set often, much like we saw with the New England Patriots when they had both Rob Gronkowski and Aaron Hernandez a few years back. He had 48 catches for 591 yards and six touchdowns in 2017 after accumulating 57 catches for 660 yards and eight touchdowns in a season of career highs in 2016.

Throughout Brate's career in the National Football League, he has racked up 129 receptions for 1,556 yards and 17 touchdowns. He was cut twice and spent time on the practice squad before eventually earning a starting job in his third stint with the team.

Besides retaining the former undrafted free agent, the Buccaneers reportedly re-signed veteran cornerback Brent Grimes. The 24-year-old is one of three receivers in National Football League history - along with A.J. Green and Hall of Famer Randy Moss - to begin a career with four consecutive seasons with at least 1,000 yards receiving. He is coming off a productive 2017 campaign where he recorded 49 total tackles with a team-leading three interceptions in 13 games played. The 34-year-old has established himself as one of the dependable assets in the secondary for the Buccaneers over the last two seasons, making 29 starts with 35 passes defended and seven interceptions over that span.
