The Buccaneers have re-signed tight end Cameron Brate to a six-year, $41 million deal, NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero reported, per a source informed of the situation. Of the $41 million, $18 million is guaranteed, Pelissero added.

Brate has exceeded all expectations as an unheralded tight end who was signed by the Buccaneers as an undrafted free agent out of Harvard in 2014.
