(FOX19) -

The Bengals announced Tuesday that the team has resigned wide receiver and kick returner Brandon Tate.

Tate was set to become an unrestricted free agent at 4 p.m. Tuesday.

Tate is in his fourth season with the Bengals and sixth in the NFL. He has played in every regular season and postseason game since becoming a Bengal. 

The Bengals said he's made his mark with the team mostly as a kick returner. He has the franchise career record for average yardage on kickoff returns at 24.8 yards.

"We're glad to get back one of our core special teams players," said Darrin Simmons, Bengals special teams coordinator. "Brandon's numbers speak for themselves and I've got a lot of confidence in him. I think this could be a real breakout year for him."
