OPINION: The Ravens Should Offer Justin Forsett A Deal Like Ben Tate Signed In 2014

Ravens should look at Ben Tate's contract prior to last season to establish a baseline for Justin Forsett. Heading into 2014, Ben Tate was the biggest name free agent running back on the market. After years of successfully backing up Arian Foster in Houston, Tate showed a decent amount of promise and had earned a chance for a starting role somewhere in the league. With an extension in Houston not a foreseeable option, the 25-year-old Tate hit the open market and agreed to terms with the Cleveland Browns on a two-year, $6.2 million deal three days after free agency began. Tate would...

Steelers inactives for Wild Card game vs. the Baltimore Ravens

Without Le'Veon Bell, the Steelers will turn to running backs Josh Harris, Dri Archer, and Ben Tate. Inactives for @Steelers: QB Jones, WR Moore, CB Taylor, RB Bell, DE Geathers, G Hubbard, TE Palmer — Bob Labriola (@BobLabriola) January 3, 2015 If there would be any week for running backs Josh Harris and Dri Archer to have big games, this week would be the week.

Former Browns RB Ben Tate Getting One More Chance to Shine...With Pittsburgh

When the Cleveland Browns signed RB Ben Tate to a two-year worth up to $6.1 million deal, it was an ideal contract for the team. They didn't have to make a heavy investment at the running back position, especially toward a guy who had a history of injury issues as a backup in Houston. Sure enough, Tate was injured in the Browns' regular season opener and missed several weeks of action. In the mean time, rookie running backs Terrance West and Isaiah Crowell shined. Tate wasn't vocally supportive of the young running backs when interviewed by the media throughout the season, which made things...

Steelers RB Ben Tate says he's here to help out

The Steelers signed running back Ben Tate to bolster depth at the running back position heading into their Wild Card round playoff game. Tate recognizes his role is not that of a feature back, and he's working hard to play catch-up. PITTSBURGH -- It's been a largely forgettable NFL season for running back Ben Tate. Until now, that is. Tate, a second-round pick by the Houston Texans in 2010, did not build on his 2013 breakout season for them and ended up being cut by the Cleveland Browns after eight games and Minnesota Vikings after just three. Then, the Pittsburgh Steelers gave him a...

Steelers sign RB Ben Tate

Ben Tate is moving on to his fourth team within a calendar year, and he will join his new squad in the playoffs. The Steelers signed Tate today after working him out earlier this morning.

However, he lasted just a little more than...

The Steelers make the signing of Ben Tate official Tuesday.
