The Bengals have reached deals with two more of their unrestricted free agents, cornerback Adam "Pacman" Jones and Tate.||||||| That makes five free agents on defense and six on offense or special teams that have decided to stay with Cincinnati.

Tate already has made an impact this season with two touchdowns on kickoff returns for the New England Patriots. Now he should get more of a chance as a receiver.||||||| With Randy Moss traded to Minnesota and Deion Branch newly arrived in a deal with Seattle, the speedster whose past two seasons were ruined by knee injuries looms as a more prominent target Sunday against the Baltimore Ravens. Tate has started two of the Patriots four games and caught 11 passes. But he returned second-half kickoffs for a 97-yard touchdown in the season opener and a 103-yard score in the fourth game.

Tate had four catches for 36 yards and a 97-yard kickoff return for a touchdown to begin the second half of a 38-24 win over Cincinnati on Sunday.||||||| Tate made almost no impact as a rookie last year, but he was a third-round pick in 2009 who could certainly contribute to New England's pass-happy attack. He also showed his explosiveness on special teams.
