One of the top backs in free agency is visiting a team in need of some backfield punch.
The No. 1 back and No. 40 overall player in PFT’s free agent rankings, the 25-year-old Tate rushed for 771 yards and four TDs on 181 carries for Houston last season. He has gained 4.7 yards per carry in three NFL seasons of play. A second-round pick in 2010, Tate missed his first season with a broken ankle, then primarily backed up Arian Foster thereafter.
Were he to sign with the Browns, Tate would figure to have a prominent role in an offense currently lacking a lead back.
