Brandon Tate May Be Odd Man Out in New England

A year ago at this time, there were hopes Brandon Tate would be the missing piece to the Patriots offense. He turned out to be an effective kick returner and an ineffective No. 3 receiver.

Now we’re not even sure if he’ll even remain with the Patriots.

Second year player Taylor Price has outplayed Tate in camp by all accounts. Price got snaps with Tom Brady Saturday night, but Tate did not.

- PFT

We should be first on the waiver wire if he gets waived. Brandon Tate could make for an interesting addition to our roster corps, which, let's face it, isn't very deep.

Plus, he's a decent kick returner.

Thoughts?

I would take him the Guy can really develop into a good number 2 WR.

I'd take him over LaFell now.

Heck no..

Why add another mid-tier Receiver? Who is he going to replace? Pilares? Edwards?

Why waste the cap space with us on the market for a DT and a CB?

He'd be worth a look, but even as a huge Heels fan, I wouldn't be too optimistic about a guy that didn't make much noise in that Pats offense. Very WR friendly offense in NE.

IMO, if he's cut, it's a move made due to the virtual elimination of kickoff returns.

Sure he never made huge numbers in the Pats' offense, but, look at their offense. For part of the time Tate was there, he had to share catches with Moss, Welker, Hernandez, Gronkowski, Branch, Woodhead, Green-Ellis, etc. There's a lot of receivers on the team, so, receivers past #1 or #2 aren't going to have huge numbers.

Also, I think that he could replace Pilares/Edwards instantly. He's young, still, and could develop into a nice wide receiver at some point. Next year, we could have a wide out corps of Smith, Gettis, LaFell, Tate, Naanee, Pilares... Think about that for a minute.

KR isn't a reason to bring anyone in. 90% of them are going to be TBs anyway. the rest....it just won't matter.

i don't see him as being much of an improvement over who we have on the roster, and that isn't saying that they are anything particularly special either.

only way we bring a new WR is if he's a special talent. i just don't see that happening.

i'd rather be focusing on shoring up the OL, improving DT, and above all getting someone worth a crap in at CB.

Denver is in the mix for a DT now. whatever we do we better jump fast.

I'd cut LaFell for him before I gave up on AE or Pilares.
