Default Re: Browns want Tate

He needs to stay, he's under contract, I can't see why the Texans would trade him away. So the browns can want in one hand, sh*! in the other and see which one fills up the fastest.

Default Re: Browns want Tate

I think it would take a swap of 22-26, their 2nd this year and a 3rd next year to get Tate from me.

Edit: Either that, or #4 for Tate + 26. Not gonna happen.

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

I think this trade goes through. Hillis signed with KC today.

Also, Tate was drafted to be the #1 at a time when nobody knew that Foster would emerge as a freaking H.O.F. potential runningback. We now have two #1 worthy backs, a #3 who's good enough to be a #2, and some newly created needs to be filled in the draft. This trade is happening.

I have faith in this regime and I know the Texans have had the same kind of luck as us Cleveland fans (only not nearly as bad). But I feel a connection with the fans in Houston because we've had the same football disasters.
Little late here and OT as well but what's the fan base's consensus on Colt. Do you guys think he's the man to get the job done or are you guys looking to upgrade like all the talking heads keep harping on?

PM me if you wish as to not derail the tread.

Hillis is gone...this talk about Tate might heat up now. I'd explore it if i were the FO simply b/c we can get back Ward & we may need the extra picks to shore up some other things depending on this situation goes with Mario, Meyers & Brisiel.

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.
And the congregation all said.....

AMEN!

Who the hell thinks they can get our Round 2 guy for a Round 2 pick?

What muff huggin' Johnny Jumpin' razz matazz muther (censored) has the nerve to say "Uh, hello there! We are affiliated with the, uh, football organization up there in Ohio, and uh we were kindly offering you a uh 2nd round pick for Mr. Tate. What ya' say?"

I say, "You're on crack."

I don't even think we should take their second 1st round pick. The truth of this deal: We drafted him, if you think he's your RB1, make me an offer that represents that line of thought. Or you can use your own draft picks and try your luck at that.

It's time teams quit treating us like we're into the business of handing them golden geese. Go away or give us proper compensation.

Tate for #22 is a great deal for Texans. We won't be able to keep him and Foster anyway if he keeps showing the tools he has.

I'm good either way though. It's pretty much win-win.

I think I would need the 22. Tate is a good back, but Foster is the guy. And I feel pretty confident that there is a back out there in the draft in rounds 4-7 that could turn into a solid number 2.

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

If Browns really want Tate, they better cough up an offer that our FO can't refuse. Tate is a stater material RB and already proved that last season and he is young. The Browns can draft RB in the first rd but there's always a chance to be bust. In Tate, they know what they can expect from him(1,000+ yrds Starting material RB). If they think we trade Tate with their 2nd rd? Crazy.

Like I say, they better cough up if they want Tate.

Go Texans!!!

I love Tate, but no one is going to give us a 1st round pick for him.

Maybe a 2nd, 3rd, & next year's 2nd.


Maybe we can do Tate & KDub for that first & a 4th
