Browns cut Ben Tate

The Cleveland Browns cut ineffective and unhappy running back Ben Tate today.

The Browns are going with rookie running backs Terrance West and Isaiah Crowell.

"With all the transactions we make while constructing our roster, it will always be our intent to do what is best for our football team," Browns general manager Ray Farmer said. "This move is no different and we wish Ben the best going forward."

Tate had rushed for 333 yards and four touchdowns with nine catches for 60 yards.

Tate started six of the eight games he appeared in this season. He rushed for 333 yards with four touchdowns and added nine receptions for 60 yards.

Against his former team, the Houston Texans, he rushed for minus-9 yards on two carries with one reception for zero yards.

A week ago, Tate said he'd be lying if he said he was happy and said "I'm just a number."

Tate signed a two-year, $6.2 million deal during the offseason.
