Browns board says its apparently for a 3rd round pick. Easy no from the Texans.

Those are the most reliable Browns sites and have some of the best posters I know.

Ah sorry I didn't see it posted over RCF so I looked around to any other Browns board to see if they had anything we missed. Sounds like the 3rd rounder was speculation.

Either way, I doubt a deal materializes.

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

I'd trade him for the right price. It'd have to be for that first rounder though. Even if we had to sweeten the deal with a later pick I would still do it.

Tate is an awesome back up, but this is the Arian show and Tate probably knows he'll likely never see a big contract with Houston. Get something for him while you still can and pick one of the talented young runners in the 3rd, 4th or 5th. Bring ward back for cheap and I'd be ok with that especially if we can use the pick to improve the team.

All that said, I'm perfectly fine with Tate coming back. Dude is a beast.

In other news, Skids also offer 4th round pick for Cam Newton.

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

I would do it for either
1) Brown #22 pick
2) Browns second round pick (#37 overall) + conditional pick in 2013 (2nd, 3rd, or 4th) based on performance as a Brown.

Since Tate was selected #58 overall and has proven success in NFL, these two deals seem approximately fair.

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

I like Tate but would rather the Browns sign a free agent like Michael Bush. This trade rumor just does not seem like something the Browns would do.

I know the chances of Bush are slim now that he is in Arizona for a visit, but if the Browns did manage to sign him away from the Cards and add another back such as LaMichael James at the top of the 3rd round, I'd feel like we were pretty set with only expending a 3rd.

Bring back Vickers and maybe the Browns could actually run the ball again and relieve some pressure from Colt.

I agree with what you say. With the crazy cuts we got so far, I'm wondering if this isn't real though. I wonder if Texans have their eyes on a FA runningback too and wouldn't mind dealing Tate.

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

We spent a 2nd on him and he's done very well for himself. The cost is absolutely NOT less than a 2nd, any offering below that should be flat out ignored.

2-2nds + conditional 3-5 pick next year.
a 2nd and switch 1sts + conditional pick
straight up for #22


They want a good player, they better be ready to give up good assets. Tate is a proven yards eater at this level. He's fast with above average burst and seeks contact when running. Was a consistent performer in the SEC before that. Dude IS a stud. Put up or shut up!!!!!

Let's also not forget that Arian just got paid, so he's going to be fat and happy. We're going to need Ben's hunger to fill-in for Arian while he works to get out of his dollaz-coma this year

Then, next year, when Arian's back to his playing weight, we'll be able to trade Ben away (though I'd rather keep him, just don't think it'll happen, unless he'll be okay with being a #2 for another 4 or 5 years)

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

It already seems as if McNair and Smith are doing bong hits with the cuts, no Texans free agents signed, and McNair stating that "we have a QB we are happy with", but if they let Tate go for anything other than Cleveland's first pick in the draft they are fools. Even for the number four overall ... I might hesitate.

Seems like the rumblings were proved to be only that as "league source" said he heard nothing.

-I have heard some rumblings recently that the Browns may explore a trade with Houston for backup running back Ben Tate. When asked about that possibility, a league source said, "I haven't heard anything along those lines but let's put it this way it wouldn't surprise me."

Default Browns want Tate

http://www.rotoworld.com/player/nfl/5742/ben-tate

If the Browns are wanting to give up a "second day" pick, they can go take a flying leap. WE drafted him in the 2nd and shouldn't take anything less than a first after developing him into a bona fide stud.
