Ben Tate expected to start preseason opener
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

Texans coach Gary Kubiak said he'd like to see running back Ben Tate "with the first group" in Friday's preseason opener at Minnesota, reports the Houston Chronicle. Tate has recovered from a minor groin injury and practiced Wednesday.

“He looks fine,” Kubiak said. “He should be able to take his reps that we want him to take. It won’t be many, but I’d like to see him with the first group.”

Kubiak said Dennis Johnson, the undrafted rookie from Arkansas, will play after Tate. Arian Foster remains on the PUP list.

Pettine: We can 'absolutely' count on Ben Tate as a top RB
by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer

Browns coach Mike Pettine was emphatic about how he sees new running back Ben Tate in the team's offense. When asked if he could count on Tate as a lead back, Pettine said: "Absolutely." 

The conversation at the NFL Owners Meeting in Orlando then turned to Tate's injury history. Pettine remained unfazed. 

"I don't have any issues with his durability," Pettine said of Tate. "I mean, here's a guy who had four broken ribs and played through it. It wasn't until he had the fifth one broken that he couldn't go anymore. He broke an ankle, to me that was more of a freak thing than anything else. But it's not like there's chronic injuries there. You bring in a guy that's got a chip on his shoulder, I think that's going to be in your favor. When there's a little bit extra motivation to play ... I think that helps separate you from the pack."

Pettine said he was OK with the depth behind Tate but also said he "wouldn't be surprised" if the team added another running back through the draft.

Details in on Ben Tate's contract with the Browns
by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer

New Browns running back Ben Tate has signed a two-year deal worth $6.2 million. According to ESPN, that includes a $1.5 million signing bonus and a $1 million base salary this season, effectively guaranteeing him $2.5 million.

He'll also receive nearly $47,000 in roster bonuses for every game he's active for in 2014 -- meaning he'll get $750,000 more if he stays healthy for 16 games. That's an important detail considering Tate has a history of missing some games. He has never played a full season and even missed his entire rookie year because of a broken foot suffered in the preseason. 

Tate is due a $2.2 million salary in 2015 with the same roster bonuses for games played.

Ben Tate ready to seize opportunity
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

Newly-signed Browns running back Ben Tate can't wait for his starting chance. “I feel like now that I’ve been given this opportunity that I can be one of the top backs in the league,” Tate said, per The Chronicle-Telegram. "I’m going to let my play speak for itself. But I want it to be known that I do feel like I’m a guy who’s gonna be a top-10, top-eight, top-five running back.

“Everyone will have their own opinion. After I play I think everyone is going to agree to kind of what I said. It’s been something I’ve been waiting for for a long time. So I’m just ready to grab this opportunity and run with it and show everyone what I’m all about.”

Tate averaged 4.7 yards per carry in 40 career games with the Texans, including nine starts. He'll boost a Cleveland running game that ranked 27th with 86.4 yards per game last season.

Ben Tate makes it official, signs two-year deal with Browns
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

After spending a few days in Cleveland, free agent running back Ben Tate signed a new deal with the Browns on Saturday, the Associated Press reports. Tate signed a contract worth up to $7 million over two years, according to Pro Football Talk.

Tate stepped in for an injured Arian Foster last season and managed to play 14 games despite nursing broken ribs. He rushed for 771 yards, averaging 4.3 yards per carry. Reunited with new offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan, Tate is expected to serve as the featured back in Cleveland.
