The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are restructuring tight end Cameron Brate’s contract as reported by The Athletics Greg Auman.
Bucs have restructured the contract of tight end Cameron Brate to keep him in Tampa. He was due to make $6 million in 2020, and $4m of that would have been guaranteed today. 27 TDs in last five years, and a key target for Tom Brady this fall. Details to come.

When asked about Brate’s contract during the 2020 NFL Scouting Combine, general manager Jason Licht said there was a possibility he’d stay on his current contracted, also reported by Greg Auman.
Brate has been a security blanket in the red zone and crucial downs for former Buccaneers quarterback Jameis Winston over the last five seasons. Brate has accumulated 27 touchdowns in that span and will look to be a major asset to new Buccaneers quarterback Tom Brady.
Brate was due to make $6 million in 2020 with $4 million being guaranteed. This, of course, points to Brate staying in Tampa for the 2020 season.
