RB Ben Tate signs with Browns
Ben Tate will play his next few seasons with the Browns.
The Browns have signed former Texans running back Ben Tate, the team announced Saturday.
Tate is the 62nd-ranked player on the CBSSports.com free agent list, and he's coming off a 771-yard, four-touchdown performance last year in Houston.
Though Tate, who played much of last season with multiple broken ribs, has struggled with his health -- leading to the speculation that the bulk of Tate's contract with Cleveland will be performance-based -- he's confident in his abilities.
"I think I can bring you an elite running back," Tate recently told Fox 26 in Houston. "I've learned a lot being behind Arian [Foster]. Definitely, when I'm healthy I think I'm an elite running back in this league, and I feel like I can show my abilities and my numbers and my play will speak for itself, and guys will be able to see that I am a guy who is a top-five running back in this league, which I believe once I get out there and get to show that on a consistent basis.
"That's something I'm more excited for and something that I'm working hard this offseason just to prove my worth, that I am that person or that player that I think I am."
