Foster: "I probably need another month"-- Thu May 26 7:00 am --
Recovering from Achilles injury
Arian Foster is at a crossroads in his career. Arian says he is at peace as he works his way back from the Achilles tear that cut his last season with the Texans 12 games short. "I probably need another month to get where I am, the person everyone is use to seeing," Arian said. "I can definitely play but I need another month to be where I want to be and be at that pro-bowl lever I can be at."
FF Today's Take:Foster has received interest from a couple teams during free agency including Miami but will wait to sign until he's closer to 100 percent healthy. Foster struggled rushing the ball in his four games last season (2.6 ypc) but made his fantasy success in the receiving department with 227 yds and 2 TDs.
Texans release Arian Foster-- Thu Mar 3 10:00 am --
Torn Achilles in October
Arian Foster has been told the Houston Texans are releasing him, a source close to Foster told ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter. Foster has spent seven seasons in Houston, rushing for 6,472 yards and 54 touchdowns, both franchise career highs. The 29-year-old Foster was due a $6.5 million base salary with a salary-cap number of almost $9 million for the 2016 season. By releasing him, the Texans would save around $6.6 million, according to ESPN Stats & Information.(ESPN)
FF Today's Take:This move was expected. One of the best fantasy running backs when healthy, Foster only played in four games last season thanks to a groin injury in camp then a torn Achilles in October. Foster won't have trouble finding a new team but it's difficult to envision him being a true workhorse at this point in his career.
