NFL: Preseason-New Orleans Saints at Houston Texans

Browns running back Ben Tate found out the hard way that running backs are no longer a valued commodity in the NFL.

Tate told Robert Klemko of, that if he could do it all over again, he would have played safety instead of running back.

“I would’ve been something else, for sure. I’d have been a safety,” Tate said. “I had the opportunity to play it in college, but I wanted to be the guy to get the ball. I had no idea the position would be devalued, but hopefully I can break that trend.”

I guess watching Earl Thomas of the Seahawks get $27 million guaranteed left a nasty taste in his mouth.  Tate waited several seasons to be a feature back, and all he received as compensation was a two-year, $6 million deal.
