Will Ben Tate's Number still be #44?
I know its Vonta's number, but I just thought i would throw it out there. Maybe they can work a deal out for it. What do you guys think?

Doubt it. Most guys transition into a # in the 20s.

He wanted 44 obviously. But like you said it was taken.

I've been trying to figure out who Ben Tate reminds me of and it wasn't until you flashed his college #44 that I realized it.
A much faster Lorenzo White.

I heard he stole Steve Slaton's lunch a little earlier, and he's coming back for his number in the parking lot.

Re: Will Ben Tate's Number still be #44?
To me #43 sounds like a FB number, now #44 on the other hand rings of a badass. Maybe due to Vonta probably.
I for one, am hoping that he makes a nice contribution in the Leach family nestegg and acquires his number.

On his facebook fanpage I suggested he do that. But I told him he'd have to pay Dominique Barber for it lol.

Re: Will Ben Tate's Number still be #44?
I say the player makes the number. I remember back in 06 watching this rookie with the strange number 59 thinking "he's gotta change it". 4 years later, its one of the most popular numbers on the team.
Who knows, Tate could make that a great number.
