The Vikings signed running back Ben Tate off the waiver wire Wednesday, one day after the veteran was released by the Cleveland Browns.

Tate was a second round pick for Houston in 2011 where he primarily backed up Arian Foster. He signed a two year contract with Cleveland during the offseason, but fell behind youngsters Terrence West and Isaiah Crowell on the Browns depth chart.

Tate is listed as 5-10, 220 lbs and is only 26 years old.
