Tate has already been cut twice this season after being signed by the Browns in the offseason. Cleveland waived him in mid-November, and the RB-needy Vikings quickly picked him up. After playing sparingly in three games, Tate was let go prior to Minnesota's season finale.
In 11 games this season, Tate rushed for 371 yards and four touchdowns on 119 carries.
To make room on the roster, the Steelers released wide receiver Justin Brown.
