Default Re: What should the Texans do with their number one pick?

Foster is 27. We have glaring holes everyone on this team with regards to defense and offense. Let's not throw in the towel on a 27 Y.O. RB after 1 injury riddled year and tear open a new hole.

Arian Foster, the poet doing strange things is the same guy that ran hard for us for several years. To say he is unfocused now isn't true. He's been this same guy for a while.

27 isn't exactly young for a RB. Especially one with as much mileage as fosters. As far as being focused, he's married with kids and got a young girl pregnant. That would take an emotional toll on anyone. The fact that every turn of that situation will be in the public eye makes it even more taxing on his emotions and it's not going away anytime soon.

I'm not suggesting cutting him. I'm suggesting getting something for him while we can. His cap hit is also a problem. Get rid of that and bring back a draft pick and it's a plus for this team IMO. This team could use those assets to fill several holes so suggesting it would it would tear a new hole is just not looking at the big picture.

Pretty sure if you trade him then you incur the dead money, not the team that acquires him. Trading him gets something for him, but you still take a cap hit.

Cut him or trade him all amortized money comes forward, the dead money would be the same. As noted a trade brings some value in return. The benefit of either is it removes salary from future years cap. There are two questions regarding Foster, his injury and surgery and Foster is a product of the ZBS and how effective would he be in another system.

Come on you couldn't get a 4th rd pick for him right now, which really makes it not worth it in my mind.

1) We don't know we are moving away from ZBS as the foundation of our rushing game and there are indications to the contrary.

2) CnD says Foster did not have a surgery in the parlance of the medical community (I have forgotten how he phrased it). I believe he is actually critical of the decision not to have surgery.

Exactly. He is more valuable for the chance he does come back healthy.
