I like the Tate idea. But trades are rare in the NFL. Houston won't just hand a quality RB over for nothing, especially to a strong conference contender. What would we have to offer them anyway. Mike Wallace, maybe. Could actually help both teams. But Wallace won't be under contract after the season and I don't know Tate's situation.

We're dreaming here anyway. The Steelers will wait until the dust settles and grab the next Memo on the cheap.
