Don’t tell Auden Tate he’s the Bengals’ fourth-best receiver.
Entering what’s ironically his fourth NFL season, Tate is set to play behind Tyler Boyd, Tee Higgins and No. 5 overall pick Ja’Marr Chase in what will likely be his final year in Cincinnati, as the aforementioned guys are signed beyond 2022.
Regardless, Tate continues to put up highlight-reel grabs, the latest being a spectacular diving juggle catch in the third quarter of Cincinnati’s preseason clash with the Washington Football Team.

It may very well be the play of the game for the Bengals, as the play put them in Washington territory and eventually led to a go-ahead touchdown to put the good guys ahead 10-6.
Ever since Tate came to Cincinnati, he’s been a star in training camp and the preseason while also having some nice moments in the regular season.
And with Chase continue to endure his rookie growing pains, don’t be surprised if Tate steals snaps from the top-five pick, at least early in the 2021 regular season.
