Ben Tate is only 26 years old and could give the Falcons some help in the running game at least during the preseason. The Falcons’ top three running backs are all dealing with hamstring injuries and may be time to add yet another running back to the roster. Tate could come at a very cheap price and would give the team a big body to carry the ball.
Tate’s best season came in 2011 when he rushed for 942 yards and four touchdowns.
