Hardesty will not be the primary back next year. We'll either address it through the draft or Hillis will be back.

Most teams would love to get a young, proven 1000 yard back at #22 overall. The Brownies, on the other hand will trade top to that position and blow it on Brady Quinn. LOL.

Dude, we might not get #22 from you, most likely because we don't want to trade Tate, but ANY team would be happy if they drafted a rookie at #22, and he had a season like Tate's let season.

I'd totally consider it. Not because I don't think that Ben Tate is a total stud and a 1st string back, but because he'll probably be gone when his contract is up any way. He is to good for the Texans to be able to pay him and Foster when that time comes most likely. So, I'd at least hear what the Browns had to offer if this article has any merit to it. Tate will most likely be gone when his rookie deal is up to become a starter somewhere. Deal him while you can if the offer is right. It probably isn't though. I agree that in this day and age in the league you need two capable backs and this is an awsome 1-2 punch. But if he has only one more season, than I'd see how just how strong another team's interest might be if they are actually acquiring.

I second that...... And he doesn't have a lot of wear on him since basically last year was like his rookie year. He should only get better. The Texans would be crazy to do it for anything less than a 1st round pick.

If a running back as good as Tate was on the boards at #22, you'd take him.
100% of the time. THAT is why Tate is worth your #22.

I'd only trade him for future contract reasons. **** it though, him and Arian HAVE to abuse the league next year for our team to have any chance at anything.

Hopefully draft a WR.

We should trade down with our first pick and try and get more. Maybe the Rams and try to wait for Trent Richardson at 6, since the Rams love Blackmon so much. I doubt they'll trade back up though, so we'll see where we land.

We need WR help bad, a scenario I've been hearing is you move up to 22, we get 26 and you get a 3rd in return for Tate.

Dear Cleveland FO,
Sure, we can talk Tate. We need your 1st round pick in return. No? Sorry then, you cannot afford Tate. It goes like this. Tate was our 2. He is now a proven high performer at the NFL level. We took that risk; you took none. And we desire compensation: a little something called risk and reward. If you want Tate, he will cost you a 1 in this year's draft so that we can replace him with a top drawer RB.

Let us know.

Sincerely yours,
rickyb
pretending to speak on behalf of the Texans FO and having fun doing it

Eh. Whatever.

I doubt we land Tate anyways. I'd like him, but I doubt it. Trent Richardson is a once a decade RB and I think we're going to take him.
