Default Foster redoubles his offseason conditioning, sets goals

Quote:
Texans running back Arian Foster has been off Twitter and largely off the radar this offseason. He has been busy training for what he views as a potential bounce-back year.

...

ďIíve just been relaxing,Ē Foster said to FOX Sports Southwestís Patti Smith on Saturday at his youth football camp in Pearland. ďIíve just been relaxing and working really hard. I think this has probably (been) one of my most intense training offseasons Iíve had since Iíve been in the NFL. I just want to bounce back. I didnít feel like I had the best season last year.Ē

...

ďI set a lot of personal goals, a lot of things that I do,Ē Foster said. ďI just didnít feel like I was at my best, and itís gonna change this year.Ē

Foster has been training with his older brother Abdul, a former track athlete with whom he has trained in the offseason for the last several years.

ď(Iíve) just refocused and rededicated myself to another level, and hopefully it shows,Ē Foster said. ďIím not traveling. Iím not doing a lot. Iím here in Houston and Iím training.Ē

The key to maturity is wanting it, and Foster is a good example.

As much as I admire his assumption of the responsibility, he was not the weak link in the running game last year. His current commitment to pick up the slack is admirable and reflects well on him, but I hope he does not get demoralized if the rest of the line cannot produce well enough to reward his efforts. This is another reason why I think Brandon Brooks' conditioning is such an important factor in 2013.
