Longtime Texans running back Arian Foster will be in Houston no longer, as of Thursday morning. The team released Foster after seven seasons, and putting up the league’s best single-season rushing performance in 2010 with 1,616 yards. Foster’s agent released a statement from his Twitter account that appeared to suggest there was no bad blood between the two following the release.
Foster, who is 29, played in just four games last season and had just 163 yards on 63 carries — he was diagnosed with a torn achilles in late October that sidelined him for the rest of the 2015-16 season. Given Foster’s age, it’ll be interesting to see who, if anyone picks him up during free agency. ESPN’s Adam Schefter added a perfect tweet after the news of just how far Foster, who signed with Houston as an undrafted free agent, came under the organization.
