49ers will work out RB Ben Tate tomorrow

Nov 2, 2015 at 9:14 AM--


According to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, free agent RB Ben Tate will be working out for the running back needy San Francisco 49ers tomorrow.

It is feared that RB Reggie Bush might be out for the remainder of the season after he slipped on the sideline concrete at the Edward Jones Dome in St. Louis during Sunday's game against the Rams. The team awaits the results of an MRI to see if he has a torn ACL.

Tate was a second round draft pick in the 2010 NFL Draft. He was selected by the Houston Texans and has spent brief time with the Cleveland Browns, Minnesota Vikings, and Pittsburgh Steelers. Tate has 2,363 rushing yards and 14 touchdowns on 540 carries during his career. That's a 4.4 yards-per-carry average.

The 49ers are also expected to try and re-sign RB Jarryd Hayne, who the team waived on Saturday. He must first clear waivers this afternoon.

That's the job of Lynch and his staff. Still, Shanahan knows how important Kittle is to the 49ers. He's a special player who the coach considers to be the best

Bill Barnwell of ESPN went team-by-team to project potential future Pro Football Hall of Fame inductees for each. How do you do that for a team like the New York Jets? Well, they do have running back Frank Gore on the roster. Barnwell lists him as "likely" to be a future inductee. What about the talent-depleted Miami Dolphins? Yeah, that one is harder. Barnwell couldn't come up with anyone who had more than a 10 percent chance to one day earn Hall of Fame honors. For the San Francisco 49ers, the decision was pretty easy.
