Gets another deal with Cardinals

Tate signed a reserve/future contract with Arizona on Monday, Howard Balzer of GoPHNX.com reports.

Analysis: Tate spent the majority of the 2022 campaign on and off the Eagles' practice squad before joining up with Arizona on Jan. 4. This marked the first time in the 25-year-old's career that he did not appear in a regular-season game, and he has now accumulated 17 receptions since the 2019 season. Tate figures to compete for a depth role in this heavily stocked receiving corps.

Joins Cardinals' practice squad

Tate was signed to the Cardinals' practice squad Wednesday, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.

Analysis: Tate will join Arizona after being let go from the Eagles' practice unit Dec. 13. The wide receiver has spent the entirety of the season on and off of Philadelphia's practice squad, but he'll now provide the Cardinals with an additional depth option in Week 18. With DeAndre Hopkins (knee) and Robbie Anderson (back) both banged up, it's possible that Tate is elevated to the active roster for Sunday's regular season finale against the 49ers.

Off Philadelphia's practice squad

The Eagles cut Tate from their practice squad Tuesday.

Analysis: Less than two weeks after re-signing with the practice squad, Tate is once again headed to waivers after Philadelphia moved to cut him. The 25-year-old wideout has yet to play a snap in 2022 and is set to become an unrestricted free agent if he's not claimed by another team during the current waiver period.

Back with Eagles' practice squad

Tate was signed to the Eagles' practice squad Wednesday.

Analysis: Tate will once again return to the Eagles' organization after being cut by the team Nov. 22. The wide receiver has yet to appear in a game this season, spending the entire 2022 campaign on and off of Philadelphia's practice squad.

Parts ways with Philly again

The Eagles released Tate from their practice squad Tuesday.

Analysis: It's been a whirlwind week for Tate, as he was released from the Eagles' practice squad last Tuesday, re-signed to the same practice squad Thursday and has now been let go again. The Florida State alum has yet to log an NFL snap this season after totaling 61 receptions for 799 yards and two touchdowns over four seasons with the Bengals from 2018 to 2021.

Returns to Philadelphia

Tate signed with the Eagles' practice squad Thursday.

Analysis: Tate was just cut from the team's practice squad Tuesday, after he had originally signed with them Sept. 7. The fifth-year-pro has yet to appear in a game this season, but he'll continue to work to earn a chance with the active roster. With A.J. Brown (ankle), DeVonta Smith (knee) and Britain Covey (thing) all questionable for Sunday against the Colts, Tate may get that opportunity sooner rather than later.

Let go from Philly

The Eagles cut Tate from their practice squad Tuesday, Aaron Wilson of ProFootballNetwork.com reports.

Analysis: Tate signed to Philadelphia's practice squad back in September, but following Tuesday's transaction, he'll now look elsewhere to continue his playing career. The 25-year-old recorded 61 receptions for 799 yards and two touchdowns across his 35-game stint with the Bengals.

Inks practice-squad deal

The Eagles signed Tate to their practice squad Wednesday.

Analysis: Tate struggled to make an impact with the Falcons during the preseason and was released ahead of the 53-man roster deadline. The 2018 seventh-round pick caught 40 of 80 targets for 575 yards in 2019 with the Bengals, but he's yet to replicate that success since.

Sep 7, 2022 7:42 AM EST


Released by Atlanta

The Falcons released Tate on Tuesday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

Analysis: Tate was the early favorite to emerge as a roster lock from the Falcons plethora of WR additions this offseason, but he found himself with the second unit more often than not during training camp. The 2018 seventh-round pick caught 40 of 80 targets for 575 yards in 2019 with the Bengals, but he's yet to replicate that success since.

Working with backups

Tate played 14 offensive snaps and caught one of two targets for seven yards during Friday's preseason contest against the Lions.

Analysis: Tate worked with the backups and isn't projected to make the Falcons' initial 53-man roster, per Scott Bair and Tori McElhaney of the team's official site reports. Many believed that if Tate stayed healthy he'd be competing for one of the top spots on the depth chart, but he now finds himself near the bottom after strong showings from Damiere Byd and KhaDarel Hodge. There's still plenty of preseason left, but Tate will have to prove he's still capable of what he showed with Cincinnati in 2019, when he finished with 40 catches, 575 yards across 12 appearances.

Another addition for Atlanta

Tate signed a one-year contract with Atlanta on Monday.

Analysis: Tate will join the second franchise of his career after spending four seasons in Cincinnati. In addition to being buried on the depth chart behind the likes of Ja'Marr Chase, Tee Higgins and Tyler Boyd, Tate was limited to only seven games in 2021 by thigh and calf injuries. As it currently stands, he should have the chance for a substantial role in Atlanta's offense, though the team is likely to further bolster its wide receiver corps.

Won't come off IR

Tate (calf) will not be activated from IR by the Bengals after his 21-day practice window elapsed, Field Yates of ESPN reports.

Analysis: Tate, who has been on IR since Dec. 4, was cleared to return to practice back on Jan. 11, but he wasn't activated by the team Tuesday, which means that the wideout won't be on the Bengals' active roster for Super Bowl LVI. In seven regular-season contests, Tate caught three of his four targets for 39 yards and a TD. The 2018 seventh-rounder, who turns 25 on Feb. 3, is eligible to become an unrestricted free agent this offseason.

Feb 1, 2022 3:07 PM EST


Resumes practicing

The Bengals have designated Tate (calf) for return from injured reserve.

Analysis: Tate can now be evaluated at practice within a 21-day window. There aren't any guarantees he'll be added to the active roster, but Tate could be eligible to return in time for Saturday's playoff matchup against the Raiders if he can prove he's back to full health.

Jan 11, 2022 8:25 AM EST


Comes off COVID-19 list

Tate (calf) returned from the reserve/COVID-19 list and reverted to IR on Monday, Charlie Goldsmith of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

Analysis: Tate will continue working his way back from his calf injury. He's spent the requisite three games on injured reserve and now just needs to be designated to return and activated.

Jan 3, 2022 10:15 AM EST


Shifted to reserve/COVID-19 list

Tate (calf) was moved from injured reserve to the Bengals' reserve/COVID-19 list Tuesday, Jay Morrison of The Athletic reports.

Analysis: Tate tested positive for COVID-19 on Tuesday and was moved to the reserve/COVID-19 list for the time being. The wide receiver was placed on IR Dec. 4, becoming eligible to return in Week 16. He will now likely have to wait an additional week before making his return to the team.

Dec 28, 2021 3:33 PM EST


Out at least three games

Tate (calf) was placed on injured reserve Saturday, Marisa Contipelli of the Bengals' official site reports.

Analysis: Tate has battled a thigh injury that has kept him sidelined since Week 8. However, he is now apparently also dealing with a calf injury that will keep him sidelined for at least an additional three games. Tate will be eligible to return in Week 16 against Baltimore, with Stanley Morgan potentially seeing the field a bit more regularly in his absence.

Dec 4, 2021 1:38 PM EST


Doubtful against Chargers

Tate (calf) is listed as doubtful for Sunday's game against the Chargers, Bengals team reporter Marisa Contipelli reports.

Analysis: The same is true of fellow wide receiver Mike Thomas (illness). Ja'Marr Chase, Tee Higgins and Tyler Boyd are locked into the top three spots on Cincinnati's wide receiver depth chart, but Stanley Morgan and Trenton Irwin could see a bit more run than usual if both Tate and Thomas sit.

Dec 3, 2021 1:20 PM EST


Dealing with calf injury

Tate (calf) didn't practice Wednesday, Jay Morrison of The Athletic reports.

Analysis: Tate missed last week's win over the Steelers due to a thigh injury, but he's now dealing with an injury to his calf. He's yet to catch more than one pass in a game this season, so Tate's status is unlikely to have much significance when it comes to Cincinnati's game plan Sunday against the Chargers.

Dec 1, 2021 6:29 PM EST


Inactive, as expected

Tate (thigh) is inactive Week 12 against the Steelers, Jay Morrison of The Athletic reports.

Analysis: Tate entered Sunday morning with a doubtful tag after not taking the practice field all week, so it's no surprise to see him sitting this one out. The Cincinnati receiving corps will again be led by Ja'Marr Chase, Tee Higgins and Tyler Boyd, with Stanley Morgan and Mike Thomas set to work in a depth/special teams role.

Nov 28, 2021 8:39 AM EST


Likely out Sunday

Tate (thigh) is doubtful for Sunday's game against the Steelers, Marisa Contipelli of the Bengals' official site reports.

Analysis: Tate was unable to practice this week due to the thigh injury and is expected to be sidelined for the fourth straight contest. Stanley Morgan and Mike Thomas should continue operating as Cincinnati's depth wideouts.
