Brandon Tate will now have to find employment elsewhere. With the cutdown date to the NFL mandated 53-man roster at 4 pm on Saturday, September 1st, he may not find a job before that window closes.

Tate was released by the New Orleans Saints on Friday. He had just signed with the Saints on July 31st.

The former North Carolina Tar Heels player was the third round pick by the New England Patriots in the 2009 NFL Draft. He only spent two seasons with the Patriots.

After playing for the Patriots, he spent five seasons with the Cincinnati Bengals and two more with the Buffalo Bills. Last season with the Bills, he appeared in 13 games, including one start.

He had six receptions for 81 yards and a touchdown. In addition, he had 20 punt returns for 193 yards. He also had 28 kickoff returns for 548 yards.

Tate has only had two seasons in his career that he had more than 200 receiving yards in a season. During his second-year in 2010, he had 24 receptions for 432 yards.

In his first season with the Bengals in 2012 — after a year away in 2011 — he had 13 receptions for 211 yards. He only has ten career touchdowns, seven as a receiver, one as a punt return and two as a kickoff returner.
