Summary

Ben Tate was brought to Cleveland via free agency to be the starting running back on what would be a pass-heavy (or at the very least, a well-balanced) attack. However, with start receiver Josh Gordon's suspension and the potential for a rookie starting quarterback, the Browns will have to lean toward a run-heavy attack. The good news for Tate is that Offensive Coordinator Kyle Shanahan has had a lot of success in the running game. The bad news is that opposing defenses will be focusing on the run, and Tate has had a spotty-at-best injury history in limited action behind Arian Foster in Houston. Cleveland also brought in two rookies to compete with Tate and potentially form a committee of backs. (May 14)
