    Give em Foster - keep Tate - RBs shelf lives are short, Foster is nearer the end than the beginning.

    Should have traded him for Trent. Screw you Cleveland for baking Indy better.

    I want a million dollars.


    Tate is going to get a nice payday, but he will have a decent chance at a better situation than Cleveland.

    There's no way the Texans turned that down.

    It was bound to happen. Ice cube wanted to go solo. Priest holmes wanted to break away from jamal lewis, so on and so on. =(

    Tate needs to improve his pass protection just a little.

    will this guaranteed interest in Tate discourage him from running hard this season?

    I'm sure teams will love giving a guy millions of dollars who doesn't play hard. He's gonna run hard and try to take Arians job if he wants big money.

    Reportedly, Trent might be even worse.

    Good news for Texan fans.

    or the teams may have reached out to his agent and said "we'll pay this guy, we know what he can do, don't risk any injury this season"

    Mario Williams got paid. In fact he was on the IR most of the season before he got his mega contract.

    There is NO way in hell they were giving the 3rd pick in the draft for Tate.
    Come to think of it we're talking about Cleveland. Wouldn't surprise if they did :eek:

    They have so many needs... Tate or not, he's got to be like 8th on their list of wants.

    any way the Texans trade Tate this year before the deadline to get something for him? If he's not going to be a part of the team next year might as well get a pick back for him not just a supplemental pick. Me thinks it depends on the health of Foster. I'd run Tate into the ground then trade his ass personally.
