If mendenhall is healthy they'd probably share time. He may or may not start IMO.

Cowboys have Murray who just got healthy and they love him. Maybe, but far from a shoe in.

The rams? Yeah right.

Cardinals have wells who just got healthy. Maybe, maybe not.

Falcons are doubtful I'd say, but maybe if turner is cut or is gone. Don't know his situation.

Giants? I think he may start, but doubtful. I think it'd BEcommittee at best.

Panthers? No. He's not going to jump deangelo and Stewart and if they cut one they aren't starting him over the other.


I think overall rb's are a bit devalued in the NFL although you do have some studs.

Some of the teams where I feel he could maybe start probably aren't trading anything of value for him...like the raiders with McFadden or the cowboys with Murray or the cards with beenie wells.
Well i doubt they would want Tate then as well

I bet Greg Knapp and Brisiel would welcome Ben Tate to the Raiders offense.

Kubes wants to run Foster into the ground so he can trade him and then use Tate next year?

There is no good reason i can think of to not use him or even Forsett.

Actually, I think there is. The way the line is playing, you gotta have some serious skills in the quickness department to get past the LOS. Tate can bang for some yardage, but he's not getting past anybody. It also takes a certain minimum size to break the D-lineman arm tackles, so Forsett wouldn't cut it right now either. The O-line sux so bad it takes Foster to get anything out of it.

Two words: Briesel & Winston.

It's possible but this year has been less than stellar for Tate so you're not looking at getting back the second round value you spent to get him. Unless Tate does something special in the playoffs I don't think too many teams are hurting for a RB so badly they'll give up anything north of a 4th rounder for Tate. Most will be content to let him come out in FA and try to sign him there if they really are eyeing him. Contrary to popular belief you can't just trade every player who has even the tiniest role on game day when they have a year left on their contract.

A few months ago he was one of the top 10 backs in the league. At least according to Texanstalk.

He's not really tradable material considering what he has done so far.
