Cleveland Browns grabbed the best free agent running back for less than 4 million a season
Cleveland’s front office crafted a shrewd, two-year deal worth up to $7 million for Ben Tate. Ranked as our No. 1 running back on the open market, Tate has the ideal blend of youth and potential for a team that sorely needed an upgrade on the ground.
The concern was that new general manager Ray Farmer might pay too steeply for a player with two trips to the injured reserve in four seasons, but the low-money deal is a bargain.
