The NFL Players Association revealed details about Ben Tate’s contract with the Browns on Tuesday.

The deal was originally reported to be a heavy incentive based contract. In the end, $1 million ($500 thousand each year) is tied to performance bonuses.
Regardless, the deal is still less than the four year deal that the Redskins gave to former Browns guard Shawn Lauvao. In fact, Tate’s base salary will not be among the top 20 running backs in the league.
