    What for?? Foster, Blue, and Grimes have been great this season. Roster spots are a commodity.

    I've been advocating all season for a change of pace back like Tate, but timing is just bad. Blue and Grimes played too well on Sunday to get any kind of demotion or losing their jobs. Plus Tate wouldn't want to be a backup again anyway.

    He was cut because he wasn't very good and didn't like the PT he was getting. So YES, ABSOLUTELY!

    He'll go to Indy if he's smart.

    He'd be 3rd string here and he's shown to be pretty bad in the locker room when he's sitting behind people.

    It would be a dick move, but if it was a video game, I'd claim him and then leave him inactive just so the Colts couldn't have him. Obviously that wouldn't fly in the real world though.

    I was expecting Cleveland to cut Tate after the season but they pulled the trigger faster than I thought.... Tate could have let his mouth run him off as well. I'm sure he was complaining after the Houston game for his lack of touches.

    I wouldn't say he was not very good. He's still effective when he isn't injured. He can also catch. I don't care about signing him, 3rd string RB isn't going to be the difference between a playoff spot, just saying - he's still decent.

    Staying healthy and being a good teammate are part of the requirements... you can't simply just be good only in the rare occasion where he was healthy and in a "good mood".

    That's the coaches problem. He wasn't a distraction playing here in a backup role. He's still good.

    Naw, maybe in the offseason depending on what we do with Foster, but he's a backup and will always be a backup here

    Damn, I'll be pissed if he ends up with the Colts.
