Default Would you trade Ben Tate for...

...Wes Welker? Lets face it, Tate will want starters money at the end of next year, while Wes welker is going to be on the doghouse with the Pats GM and owner due to everything that has happen this offseason.

Do you think it will be possible this trade? Should we have to give a draft pick to sweaten the deal? Can we work around the cap issue to pay him for 3 season? He has prove to be pretty durable except for that play in the good old Reliant Stadium

I think both sides will get the best of this deal. The pats do not have such a talented guy in the backfield as Tate and he will give that offense a whole new dimmension making the pats stronger than they are right now. They have like a bizillion of WRs right now, including Edelman that they love to take the slot position and they don't seem to eager to pay big bucks for Welker.

Regarding us, imagine having a real playmaker like Welker next to AJ. He will definetely take the preasure off Andre and will make us a very talented offensive team with our running game and two pro bowlers as WRs. He will be a good teacher for our young guns too, teaching them how to separate and be a mentor next to Andre playing as two WRs with very different styles.

What do you think?

Why would the pats trade the best slot reciever in the nfl for Ben tate? And the Texans have no money to trade for Welker and sign him. I love this dream scenario trades which in reality have no chance of ever happening.

And by the way, Ben Jarvis Green-Ellis is actually a very solid running back.

I also think it wont be possible, however if we offer a second round pick and Tate the Pats will at least think about it. Regarding the money issue, yeah I guess you are right.

Other scenario will be trade for Dwayne Bowe, which is said to be on the trading block for the Chiefs but they have Charles and Hillis so they will not want to deal with us, unless is for multiple picks that we will not give.

Ok... Whatever. He averages 4 yards a carry and has never turned over the pig skin. I don't know what football world you live in but in my book, that's a solid running back.

That's right.. Forgot he signed with the bungholes. Just proves that running backs are a dime a dozen. I still think the pats would never make a trade like that other than for financial reasons.

The front office is not happy about him going public regarding his contract issues and just the fact that they dont have a deal already and that Welker is saying that the talks are "worse" than before he signed his tag says a lot.

Default Re: Would you trade Ben Tate for...

I would not trade Ben Tate.....at this time, bcuz if Foster goes down.....then the Texans hope of a SB will go down in flames......just like every year it seems with "freak" injuries! let's face it the Texans are a running team. We may have #80, but that's it! We just can't rely on the D all the time. This year we need a very healthy Matt Schaub, a repalcement for Joel Dreesen, a good 2nd WR, lots of luck, & no major injuries to go far.

Thumbs down Re: Would you trade Ben Tate for...

Trade Tate. So....who you replacing him with? I dont know where you were last season....but Foster was out and Tate went in and did a good job starting.
I like the way he runs too. He will mix it up for you. It is a good combination.....Foster the more elusive runner and then bring in Tate who will run over people and break tackles too.

I just think you dont trade a insurance policy at running back away like that.

Having 2 starting backs is not a luxury in this league, but a must. AF is arguably the best in the business and Ben is a great #2, who give the defense something different to worry about.

Extend Tate and just stop this thread.

Dont get me wrong, I love Tate. I think he is a great backup and a great insurance for Foster. The only problem that I see pass this season is that he will want to have a big contract that Im pretty sure the Texans will not pay after paying for Foster big bucks this season.

I will hate to see Tate go as a FA and get nothing in return for him, like Mario. I do not see this as a priority this season but next season we will have to at least consider moving him and draft a backup RB in the 4th or 5th round.

Sure they are. That's how Schaub put up over 9000 yds in two years and was headed toward another 4000 yd season before going down last season even with the league's leading rusher. The Texans are not a rushing team. They are a screw you either way they can team and do both very well (even with their barely above average QB and crap receivers) - the two play off each other.
