Backfield Blowout: Browns Release Veteran RB Ben Tate

It was a move that you could have felt coming following the loss to the Texans on Sunday.

Today the Browns waived RB Ben Tate, sending their biggest offseason pickup packing just 10 games into his first season with the team.

“With all the transactions we make while constructing our roster, it will always be our intent to do what is best for our football team,” said GM Ray Farmer said in a statement.

“This move is no different and we wish Ben the best going forward.”

Tate started six of the eight games he appeared in this season. He rushed for 333 yards with four touchdowns and added nine receptions for 60 yards.

His displeasure with the team was evident last week when he was asked and didn’t hold back on the fact he claimed he would be “lying” to say that he was satisfied with his limited workload.

The starting job this last week went to rookie back Isiah Crowell, and in the 23-7 loss he had just two carries for negative two yards.
