    For a third round pick?? If that happens, then with the combined with the release of Winston & letting Mario / Myers go, the front office will have truly lost their minds.

    A 2nd and a 3rd might warrant consideration.

    I don't think the Texans would move Tate for a 3rd round pick. Tate was a 2nd rounder, and has now proven he was worthy of that pick.

    For a 2nd round pick it could make sense, being that we are might have to replace 3/5 of our O line!

    RS: "For one of your 1st rounders and a 3rd, you can have a proven 1000 yard RB with only a season of mileage and a ton of potential. No other offers considered."

    Ben Tate + 26th pick for #4 pick. I'd do that deal in a heart beat. And then try to trade up to #3 to take that O-line guy from USC.

    Chain-linking me :mad: from Yahoo to CBS to NFA to ESPN.

    [rQUOTEr]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."[/rQUOTEr]

    Ben Tate is an awesome back up though. Best RB tandem in the league.

    They don't need Tate - they already have my man Chris Obiwan Kenobi.

    would definitely take more than a 3rd. Probably no less than a 1st.
