Since RB Peyton Hillis has departed for the Kansas City Chiefs, rumors have surfaced that Tate could be traded to the Browns.
“[It’s] not gonna happen,” writes Cabot. “Even if the Browns wanted him, the Texans aren’t dealing him.”
The Texans have one of the best one-two punches in the NFL with the combination of Arian Foster and Ben Tate, which makes it hard to envision that the Texans would be willing to breakup such a productive backfield, especially after the difficult offseason that they’ve endured thus far.
Cleveland will have to look for solutions at running back elsewhere. Trent Richardson would make a lot of sense for them at #4 depending on how you feel about taking a running back that early in the draft.
