The Cleveland Browns have money to use and they are looking to improve as fast as possible. Early in free agency, the Browns were addressing the defense heavily with the signs of safety Donte Whitner and linebacker Karlos Dansby, but now, the Browns are looking to improve the offense.
According to a report, the Browns will sign former Texans’ running back Ben Tate if he passes his physical. Tate is coming off an impressive 2013 season after starting seven games and running for 771 yards and 181 carries and four touchdowns. Tate had an average of 4.1 yards a carry.
Tate has backed up running back Arian Foster since coming into the league in 2011 and has done a pretty nice job. Tate’s biggest issue has been holding onto the football. Tate put the ball on the ground five times in 2013 and a total of 10 times in his short career. Tate has the same amount of fumbles in the league as he has rushing touchdowns (10).
Tate has suffered from many injuries since being drafted but an improvement nonetheless for the Browns. Contract details have not been leaked yet but if Tate passes the physical, expect the sign to happen right away.
