He's a great option when Arian is not in and I actually wouldn't mind seeing him used more to keep both of them fresh.
Ive thought about trading him too, but I dont believe we are going to get a first round pick for him. I could be wrong, but I think Tate is more valuable on the team than being traded.
Lets just say we get a first rounder for him, then we have to pay that first rounder. Id rather put that money towards tates contract.
What about if we offered him an extension instead of waiting for his contract to run out? It always seems like teams get better deals if they are proactive instead of reactive. I bet we could get him for an additional three years on his current contract for 5 mill per?
