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

I would do this if it was an option. Foster just doesn't seem to have "it" anymore and Tate is running extremely well this season.

i know you are serious but you shouldnt be. Although Foster has struggled a little and tate has appeared to be good, Tate has not been the starter for a full season, Foster has been a superstar player for us and we know he can take the grind of a long season. Tate has been hurt quite a bit considering the little amount of PT he has gotten. I take foster over tate any day of the week.

I look for foster to re find his dominance next week as he has looked better and better every week since week 1.

For me it's not about Foster himself but the cap situation. People need to get less attached to Arian and remember the zone blocking scheme is just another running style and backs are almost interchangeable, do you get that big of a dropoff to pay $8M+ a year? I'd sign Ben for 4 million a year and then save the money for JJ Watt.

Foster has had only three games to hit his stride, and people are talking about trading him. Wow.

I am not evaluating Foster on his 3 games but rather on his history and apparent health. Do you think he will have an off year?

Foster has been slowly declining every season.

Calling people knee jerks is not a valid counter argument. It's not even an argument really.

I shouldn't have to explain that the offensive line has declined. That's a given, and it should be considered first before talking about trading our very talented running back after only three games.
