Default Cleveland Browns Rumors: Talks for Houston Texans RB Ben Tate Surface

Quote:
It's been just over six hours since the start of the new NFL year and free agency, and the Cleveland Browns seem to be a non-destination for all the top names available.

However, reports surfaced that the Browns are engaged in talks with the Houston Texans about running back Ben Tate.
I'm not buying this rumor, but thought it was worth posting

I think in Today's NFL you got to have two good running backs. Barring scoring something high as a second rounder, I don't think the Texans bite.

Seems like the link I posted above was a reference to a very small tid bit in this story:

I wouldn't even consider it. We have the best 1-2 punch in the game, why mess that up? Injuries happen on a dime & we're lucky enough to have a back up that can step right in if needed. Thanks, but no thanks....

Default Re: Cleveland Browns Rumors: Talks for Houston Texans RB Ben Tate Surface

For clarity, the original blog used the words "I have heard some rumblings recently that the Browns may explore a trade with Houston for backup running back Ben Tate.

The next "writer" decided to embellish on that, twisting the phrase "may explore" into this:
"However, reports surfaced that the Browns are engaged in talks with the Houston Texans about running back Ben Tate."

Interesting for sure. If the offer is right i'd be up for it. With the situation it looks like we're in we could use some draft picks.


Unless your name is Foster, you're replaceable in this system although i really do like Tate.

Default Re: Cleveland Browns Rumors: Talks for Houston Texans RB Ben Tate Surface

With Tate's contract coming up in 2 years and Arian guaranteed a good amount for the first 3 years of his contract I would entertain offers and see what they're willing to give. If its for the #22 pick then I jump all over that. The ideal time to trade him would be after next year when he only has 1 year left, but his value may never be higher. The likelihood that we'll be able to keep him after his rookie contract expires isn't very high. We have to get what we can while we can.

The problem is finding a replacement for him. If we lose some of our Lineman then obviously we'll have to fill some of those spots through the draft. But there are some backs in the draft that I love namely Isaiah Pead from Cinci. We can't just keep losing good players for nothing though.

He was our 2nd. Why would we trade him for a 2nd?!?

No like at all. Tate is my favorite.

The Texans are looking thin on the O-line. If the Browns offered their 2nd 1st round pick, I think the Texans would have to consider the deal.

Couldn't resist. I left this comment for the writer:

And "details of the trade were not available at the time of publishing this article"? Of course details are not available. How the F can details be available for a trade that does not exist, as evidenced by the link YOU provided.

LOL Hack.

I think that'd be a no brainer, too bad i think they're even too smart to make that offer.

Absolutely. They have to take the phone call and listen to the offer.

No way would I trade Tate for a 2nd rounder. We know what we have with Tate.
Why would you trade a 2nd round pick (Tate) that you know you hit on, for an equivalent pick that is an unknown? It's like taking all the risk for the Browns.

LOL, you guys are dreaming if you think you can get a first off of us. Even #22 for Tate.

Think in the vicinity of a second, or two thirds.
