News: Coach Mike Pettine indicated Sunday that he's comfortable using Tate as a third down back, the Akron Beacon Journal reports.
Impact: Tate is "probably the guy you can trust the most right now," according to Pettine, who also praised the back for his pass-catching ability out of the backfield, an essential skill if he's going to see the field on third down. Tate caught a career-best 34 passes last season with Houston, and it's an area of his game that he continues to refine. Heading into camp, rookie back Terrance West was expected to threaten some of Tate's workload, but after a lackluster preseason, it looks as if the job is unquestionably Tate's. Heading into Week 1, look for Tate to be the Browns' every-down back.
