The 31-year-old has been a reliable tight end throughout his time in Tampa, but battled injuries during this past season. Brate suffered a concussion in a Week 2 defeat against the Chiefs, and later sprained his neck and was stretchered off the field in the Buccaneers’ Week 6 loss to the Steelers. He played in 11 games with 20 receptions for 174 yards in 2022.
During the 2020 season, the veteran tight end had 28 receptions for 282 yards to contribute to the Buccaneers winning Super Bowl LV.
Brate will now be hitting free agency with the hopes of earning a spot in another squad’s tight end room.
