"We're really excited to have a guy like him in our offense, someone big enough to block the d-ends and athletic enough to go out for passes, " said Brate. "It opens up our offense to pretty much do whatever we want in terms of lining up guys in different spots and being multiple in our personnel."
- Brate, who saw a career-high 81 targets in 2016 as the unquestioned No. 1 tight end for the majority of the season, projects to be involved in plenty of two-tight end sets with heralded No. 1 pick O.J. Howard in the coming season, Jenna Laine of ESPN.com reports. "We were fortunate enough to add speed on the outside with DeSean Jackson to pair up with Mike [Evans] and now we've got two tight ends to pair side by side in [Cameron Brate] and O.J.," said head coach Dirk Koetter.
