Anyone else unsure as to why nobody in this interview (http://www.buccaneers.com/videos/videos ... 6295a94bf9) is addressing the fact that Cam Brate and Casey Phillips are almost certainly long lost siblings.

Yep. I was looking to find that thread to remind people about what they said.

IIRC most wanted to keep him, as did I, but felt OBP wouldn't deal out the $8+M/yr deal he could chase on the market. We got him for 6.8M/year. Apparently, he wasn't chasing it- who knew. Trey Burton just got $32M over 4 from the Bears and Brate is not only the same age but bigger and has done more in each of his last two years than Burton has done in his last two combined. Brate could have chased some paper but didn't. No one saw that coming.

I was going to do the same but surprisingly, most copped to it, albeit in a dismissive way. Except one (you know who).

Trey Burton gets 4 years $32 million from the Bears. About $1.5m more per year than our deal for Brate. Both are 26.

23 catches for 248 and 5 TDs is what Burton did last year. Brate did that as a part time player in 2015, before averaging 53 rec, 630 yards and 7 TDs over the past two seasons.

Based on market price, an't see how Brate's deal is anything but a positive.

We re-signed a good young player at a market value deal. The end.


To continue for MJW here, the point isn't what we're paying them. We have plenty of cap room. The point is the opportunity cost of having both of them. We are 2 deep at a less important position while we remain 0 deep at more important positions. Our lines suck and no amount of TEs or slot WRs will change that. If we intended to move forward with OJ then we should have traded Brate. If we intended to extend Brate then we should have drafted someone besides OJ.

Its like spending money on a second set of fancy wheels for your car while the broken transmission is sitting on the ground next to it.

I don't mean this a negative about Brate or OJ. I think they are both fine young players. I just feel like whichever is the "2nd" is a luxury we aren't a good enough team to be able to afford.

So how does signing Brate hurt those 0 deep positions?

Brate likely does not need to chase the money. Harvard education and all. He might also feel this team is on the cusp and wanted to stay. Some of us might have seen that coming.

Per @Insiderrr
Brate decided to give the Bucs a discount in order to continue his Lannister-esque love affair with Bucs reporter Casey Phillips.

You didn't know about the new NFL rule that gives any team a starting caliber player at a position of need if they trade away a starting-caliber player from a position they don't need as much?

I thought it was because he liked living with Humph and Griffin too much.

Let's say we decided Brate was the guy we wanted to roll with just for conversation. We could have then used OJ's pick to draft T. White, Takk McKinley, Forrest Lamp, or someone like that and it would have made us a better team overall.

If OJ was the guy then we could have traded Brate for a player at a position where we have a hole or a pick to draft that guy.

Teams only have so many resources to work with and the objective is to build the best team. Devoting a lot of resources to a backup or role player when you have glaring holes leads to 5-11 seasons.


Brate is not a very good inline TE thus Howard was drafted. His value is lining up as a move TE and down by the goal line. This is in particular for the QB the Bucs have who works best with tall receivers and are more stationary.

OJ Howard was BPA and does things that Brate will never do as far as blocking. For a team that values 2 TE sets, we need both and we can't get back the 1st round pick we got for Howard. Your explanation still doesn't explain outrage or even questioning singing Brate. If he walked we would have used a resource on a replacement. We likely wouldn't have gone into a season with Howard, especially with how green he is and his injury, and Auclair or Cross being basically a starter. If Howard develops to what we all hope, we can still trade Brate, but as of now Brate is our best option and we have a ton of hope in Howard. Even if Howard develops, 2 good TEs is highly coveted around the league. The Patriots value TE more than WR. Letting Brate walk, especially if we could have been had for this amount of money, would have been worst case scenario.


I'm not 100% clear on how the whole, "He's a tight end who doesn't block!" thing is a plus in his column. It makes it seem a lot like we just paid a slot receiver 6/41.


To you it would.

To those who understand the game, they would recognize the value this particular player has for this team currently. BTW.....if this hasn't been mentioned later in this thread....his deal is a one year $7mil deal with an option to kick in a secondary guarantee on league day 5 in 2019. So while the $41mil makes for a nice dramatic piece, it has very little to do with the truth.

It’s a sign of intelligence. Who knows if he will gel as well on a new team? He has more of an opportunity to get paid for multiple years on a new contract here. The situation is important with this player as he does not necessarily have elite measurables or a full toolbox for his position.
