Tate is in the last year of his rookie deal and the club will now face a decision on whether to extend his stay if the contract appeals to the back, who may chase starter's money elsewhere after serving as Arian Foster's backup.
"That's something I can't really answer right now," Tate told the Houston Chronicle.
"Just the fact so many things are going to change once the season's over — different head coaches, different people fired everywhere else.
"That's something I haven't really thought about yet. That's something I'll probably think about after the next three weeks."
Tate has 699 yards on 165 yards this season and also four rushing scores.
