The Cleveland Browns had one of the messiest running back situations in the league last year with Ben Tate, Terrance West and Isaiah Crowell all vying to be the top dog at this time a year ago. Much has changed in the past year and now Crowell is the last man standing after the Browns traded West to the Tennessee Titans for a conditional seventh-round draft pick in 2016. The Browns are admitting they swung and missed with West after taking him with #94 overall pick in last year’s NFL Draft. This move creates some clarity in the Cleveland backfield for this upcoming season and further clouds things in Tennessee, who may just have the ugliest running back committee we’ve seen in a while.
Let’s break down the aftermath of the trade and evaluate the value changes for some key players involved.
