Dumping of Ben Tate has Browns calming tensions in backfield
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Browns running back coach Wilbert Montgomery has expressed optimism in regard to his backfield after a 2014 season in which friction revolving around free agent addition Ben Tate became toxic.

Tate was waived in November after losing carries to rookies Terrance West and Isaiah Crowell.

"[Tate] came in early and they paid him [free agent] money to come here so he felt he was 'the guy' and the other guys were in his way," Montgomery told the Northeast Ohio Media Group. "Everybody [now] is out relaxing and playing.

"It was bad. They would get into it, you know, in the locker room, just having words, and in the meeting room, and it takes away from what you are doing out on the field. It becomes a distraction. It's a serious thing, it's a hard thing, but then you have to move on like we did and let these young guys grow."

The competition should be heated again this year with the addition of third-rounder Duke Johnson, but Montgomery is claiming that in 2015 there are no personality clashes.

Tate has yet to find a team for this season.

Steelers running backs do little in relief of Le'Veon Bell Saturday
by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com

Steelers running backs Josh Harris and Ben Tate were able to find little running room in Saturday's 30-17 loss to Baltimore. Harris ran nine times for 25 yards while Tate had five carries for 19 yards.

As a team, Pittsburgh managed just 68 yards on 19 carries in relief of star running back Le'Veon Bell, who missed Saturday's game with a knee injury.

Big Ben: Can't expect much from Ben Tate this week
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger said it's unrealistic to expect a lot from newly-signed running back Ben Tate in Saturday's playoff game against the Ravens.

“I don’t know how you could come in in a couple of days and learn a new offense,” Roethlisberger told ESPN.com. “I think if we can put together a specific package, a few runs here, a few passes there, I think he could help us if we need him to.”

If starter Le'Veon Bell (knee) can't play, rookie running back Josh Harris would start and be spelled by rookie Dri Archer and Tate. Harris, an undrafted free agent out of Wake Forest, rushed five times for 7 yards Week 17 but had a 59-yard run called back on a penalty.

The Steelers are 3-point home favorites.
