Free agent running back Ben Tate came to Cleveland on Thursday the team confirmed, and remained in town on Friday.
Tate is 25 years old. He has rushed for 1992 yards and 10 touchdowns. He averages 4.7 yards per carry for his career. Tate has been primarily a back-up to Houston’s Arian Forster for the past three seasons. He is listed as 5’11” and weighs 215 pounds.
One free agent who is not in a hurry to take a visit or sign a deal is center Alex Mack. The Browns applied the transition tag to Mack meaning they have the right to match any deal that the 5 year veteran works out with another club. Mack could also chose to sign the Browns’ one year tender, play out the season and be a free agent all over again.
Reportedly, Mack has four teams interested in making a deal with him. That could be an agent smokescreen as well.
