Default Would you trade Tate for the Browns #4 pick?

If we trade Ben Tate to the Browns for the #4 pick we can move ahead of the Rams and scoop Justin Blackmon, thoughts? I love Ben Tate as our back up also with our 1-2 punch combo at RB but Blackmon is Andre 2.0 if we draft him.

Errr...HELLZ Yeah!!...But you're living in dreamland if you think they give up #4 for Tate, I can't really see them giving up #22 unless we were to throw in some sweetner. And in keeping with current themes, there's a thread for that!

I think the real question is why would the Browns give up this pick when they could use it on Trent Richardson?

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

The idea we could get #4 for Tate is stunning. There's ZERO chance. Foster might do the trick, but never would the Browns hand us the #4 pick for Tate.

And to be honest, I once had a man crush on Blackmon. But lately I don't have that bromance for him like I did. Something tells me he could be over-hyped for what he'll encounter in the NFL.

It's fun to watch him pick on teams like TTU and other Big 12 teams who have low secondary talent. Yay. What will he do when he's challenged in the NFL every Sunday by the best of college CBs...guys who have been a CB in the NFL for 3 or 4 or 5 years and then the Safeties also come over and play help on that side, too? Does he go Randy Moss and stop running his routes since it's no longer "easy pickins"? Does he let up? Drag his ass on plays?

Too early to anoint Blackmon as AJ version 2.0.

I actually hope that we somehow end up with Michael Floyd..........with Blackmon's history, he may have too many problems staying out of Houston bars.

what it would really mean if we get the Skids #4 pick is that the Browns GM is smoking crack. If that is the case, we just need to send them some brillo and a few rocks...

Especially since the Texans' WRs (sometimes others join) go out as a group to a bar each Thursday including AJ although he is very low key and not a big drinker.

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

I would do it for #37 and their 5th round pick. That would give us a lot of options early in the draft. We could use #26 and #37 to trade up into the early teens and draft Floyd or Decastro. Or we could use one of them to trade down to stockpile e tra picks. There is going to be some very good value in this draft in the middle rounds.

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

While I like Tate as our backup RB, if Cleveland is willing to give up their late 1st or their 2nd (#37) for him, I promptly accept their offer & immediately go out & sign Michael Bush in free agency.

I would demand 22 & a 2nd for Tate & 26..... if I can't get the 2nd, I'd want this year's 3rd & next years.

Unless they gave us crazy value, which is dumb on their part, I don't get giving up Tate. He's a proven performer playing for under $500k/year for the next two years. Hard to replace that value with an UFA or a draft pick, unless it's a high one.

What's Blackmon's history? Because I know that Floyd is still on probation for a DUI last year. Floyd was also arrested in 2010 for underage drinking.

I was honestly wondering what he knew about Blackmon. Are there any WRs out there without a rap sheet?
