In three seasons at Florida State, the 6-foot-5, 228-pound Tate caught 65 passes for 957 yards and 16 touchdowns, including an Atlantic Coast Conference best 10 last year.

Only three of the Bengals 11 draft picks remain unsigned — center Billy Price (first round), defensive end Sam Hubbard (third round) and linebacker Malik Jefferson (third round).

The Bengals also inked undrafted rookies Tyrice Beverette (6-0, 203, safety, Stony Brook), Brad Lundblade (6-3, 295, center, Oklahoma State) and Chris Okoye (6-5, 325, defensive tackle, Ferris State).

To make room on the roster for the three signings, the Bengals waived guard Oni Omoile, tight end Scott Orndorff, both first-year players, and third-year safety Robinson Therezie.
