Yes, that would be very silly, but this is also the same stupid team that picked a RB in the top 5 and then turned around and traded him the very next season for a way lower draft pick. That organization isn't exactly one that uses great logic in their decisions.

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.

That is fine that you have that opinion. Other people think it could be some other things, including foster himself.

Teams can wait for him to go RFA and hope they get him or they can guarantee they get him with a trade.

Tate will be an unrestricted free agent after this year. The Texans would have to tag him in order to trade Tate after the season.

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.

Right and that makes it even worse. As the OL has declined so has foster.

We should trade high. Let him go while he still has value.

Tate for Joe Thomas straight up. Move DB to the (R) tackle...we would then have a hell of a running game. (Yes I know this sounds VERY Madden, but hey its fun).

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.

Default Re: Browns want Ben Tate

You folks that think we'd get a 1st round pick for either Foster or Tate are delusional. Fosters contract and the fact he's got 3+ yrs. in the league and not running the ball well prevent that. Why would a team give us a 1st round pick for a player that obviously ran hard for the money 2yrs. ago but has been steadily declining ever since, and has a big contract that they'd have to honor? As for Tate he's been in the league a number of yrs. as well and been often injured and obviously running for the money now.
