On a side note... the way his contract is structured, he's lined up for a sure-cut by 2016. He'll be getting paid +14M, but only 2.7 of it is dead money.
Dredge up one of the old ones. There are plenty around including from this season.

He isn't past his prime. He just had 1400 yds with dumb and dumber at QB and is in the stretch of his career where Jerry Rice had the best 4 years of his career.

He contract is set up perfectly for a restructure to have him go from being paid as he deserves as one of the best #1's in the league to an extension as one of the best #2's in the league.

That is in the past and it is completely irrelevant right now. If you say yes, if you say no to your question - How does that change anything?

You can choose to focus on what you can't control while the rest of us focus on what you CAN control.

Default Re: Should foster be next to go?

I don't think we can afford to cut Foster but I don't know if his mind is in the game anymore either ... since he got his contract ....

If he's not going to dedicate himself to the game and be an everyday contributor ... including practice .... we don't lose much by letting him go because he's just going to sit it out until he sees we are a contender or not before getting serious again.

He's got the team between a rock and a hard place.

Default What about FOSTER

Foster has been with the Texans since 2009. That's 5 maybe 6 seasons of hard running with lots of carries and several injuries along the way. Average length of an NFL running back's career 2.57 years. Sure hope Blue works out because Foster is on the tail end of his career just like Johnson is.

Default Re: What about FOSTER

I don`t worry about Foster. He is a great guy, a very smart runner and great to have on the team. There is a good chance his career won`t last too much longer, but I don`t think losing him would be catastrophic. It would free up lots of capsapce, and it is not too hard to find a runner that gets the job done free.

So IŽll be happy for as long as we have that real playmaker in Foster - when we have to let him go IŽll be sad to see him go, but I will really like that extra capspace. I still believe you shouldn`t invest too much money in positions like HBs or WRs (I love AJ, but I still think you need to spend your money elsewhere to win big). Get great lines on both sides of the ball, get a QB that is worth spending 15 million on, get good CBs and guys on defense that can get to the QB and you have a good chance to win.

I like Foster. I hope he does well this season. I like the story of the UDFA makes good, like I hope Keenum fits the local boy does well story. Those types of stories about your team are better than the ones like are coming out of Cleveland, and much more endearing to the fans.

Maurice Jones Drew was rode hard. In his first five years, he carried the ball 1141 times. Including 312 carries his 4th year & 299 carries his fifth year. He went on to carry the ball another 663 times over three years averaging 4.3 yards per carry.

I don't know if Arian has many thousand yard seasons left in him. But with the meat we've got in front of him, he's not going to have many "hard yards" in the near future.

Arian Foster ready to tackle Texans new offense

Quote:
Foster has recovered from back surgery and worked hard to make sure he would be able to take part in the Texans offseason workouts.

He was at the team's voluntary minicamp for veterans and will be working with his teammates during the Texans' organized team activities which begin next week.

"Yea, I'm back," Foster said.

He's back and ready to tackle the Texans new offense.

"They have a lot of zone schemes, runs, every offense does," Foster said. "The way they want to use me out of the backfield as far as different alignments and matchups they want to have against linebackers and things like that."

Arian is very good at avoid big hits.

Arian & AJ will both be cap casualties after the 2014 season.

I am wondering about Foster too (worried is not my word of choice, but close).

Foster is coming off back surgery, and to tell the truth looked sluggish when he was healthy.

How does his running style fit the new scheme?


I hope he does great, and I don't think Blue is the answer if he falters.

Depends on whether Foster has another big yr. Foster is essentially playing for his job next yr. If his back holds up I think he will have a big yr. He is running to support his gold digger and illegitimate child.

What do you not like about Blue? I think he could be the steal of the draft.
