Tate, 30, is a former third-round pick of the Patriots back in 2009. He lasted just over three years in New England before he was later cut and claimed off of waivers by the Bengals.
Tate re-signed with the Bengals but was, unfortunately, cut loose during the preseason as they trimmed their roster down to 75 players. The Bills later signed him to a one-year deal and re-signed him to another one-year contract last offseason.
The Saints signed him to a contract back in July but wound up cutting him loose as they trimmed their roster down to the 53-man limit. Tate returned to the Saints last week.
