Browns want Ben Tate

Browns covet Texans free-agent-to-be RB Ben Tate. Should Cleveland land Tate, it would have him and Indy's first-rd draft pick in place of Richardson.

I can't hear you I can't hear you..lalalalala.

I hate the idea of losing Tate - especially with Arian's indifferent start to the season.

This was the 1st thing I thought when I saw the news

Texans won't be able to afford him anyway. He's going to get starters money from some team.

Horrible.. call..

We've got Tate's replacement in Cierre Wood. If we can get a first for Tate I'd pull the trigger but that's the least I'd consider.

Why would they trade for him when they can just sign him in the offseason? Cleveland is looking to stockpile draft picks.

Yeah, I completely misread the original post. They've been wanting Tate for years now if the reports are true so they'll go hard for him in free agency.

Trade them Arian.

Be happy with what we give you and play chris obenaya (sp)

I keep Arian and trade Tate. We draft another next year and start over. I seem to be alone in thinking that Tate has nowhere near the kind of elusiveness and vision that Foster shows.

Wood could step into Tate's shoes right now and he wouldn't be that big a drop off. Besides we seem to be casting off pieces due to salary cap issues left and right. A team doing that is going to need to replace those pieces with less expensive draft picks in order to keep up. Time to part with Tate and fill another need.

But you have to have a partner to make a trade. Why would anyone trade for Tate when they know they can have him as an RFA in the offseason? What team do you see out there with playoff expectations that would trade for Tate? I can't think of one off the top of my head.

Because Smith floats he is talking to other teams about Tate trade before deadline.
