Brate’s production slowed down in 2022. Last season was the first year in his NFL career he finished the regular season without a touchdown reception. Brate played in 11 games and had 174 yards receiving for the 2022 campaign.
The Buccaneers must find more ways to maneuver salaries in the coming weeks. According to Over The Cap, the team is still over $56 million in the red.
