Ben Tate is doing a really good job of ingratiating himself with a new fan base.

The running back who the Cleveland Browns signed this offseason previously had a contest where he picked fans to join a NCAA tournament bracket challenge but took it to a whole other level Monday night.

Tate spontaneously chose 44 (his jersey number) of the most creative Browns fans who tweeted a photo or statement proving their loyalty to meet up with him.
