    Foster played hard all year and said nothing.
    I know you may not be contractually obligated to pay him a lot this year but I think you do something above what you have to for him NOW.

    yup, sign him now for 5 years. If you don't, you're crazy. Foster is THE best in the business. No hb has the full skillset that he does.

    The system can make most backs productive yes, but not Foster productive. This dude is on another planet.

    Wrap him up for the long haul. It's time to lock him in for 5 years. The man is young, talented, and a good locker room guy. You pay those guys when you are lucky enough to get them.

    I agree completely. 5 years is about the perfect length of time.

    Did you see that one handed twirling catch on 3rd down? Foster is the real deal, even if it is the system he excels in it.

    We gotta pay guys how much they are worth to this team. He's worth a lot to this team.

    I think paying him now will set a good example for the players too that sometimes the team can be loyal to a player.

    I wanted to cry seeing the devastation he was feeling. He wanted this for the TEAM so badly, you could see it.

    Yep. You could see it in his eyes. Dude was hurting inside. Good. Got to take that pain and channel it, funnel it, and shape it. Pay the man. Now! Not next week. Not after breakfast. Now.

    Pay him. Every time I think I know what he can do he pulls out something crazy. That one handed catch today was a thing of beauty. Or that shoelace width from out of bounds dance for 20 yrds.
    This guy is something special, and he's a perfect fit for our offense.

    I think he'd stay. RBs that leave this system don't have the same success elsewhere. Plus, the best scenario for a great RB is to play behind a great O-Line and with a dominating defense on the other side. If he stays healthy for the next 5 years he could be at 10k by the time he's 30. You gotta keep him.

    He is a restricted FA, if I understand correctly, he can only resign with the Texans. A team can put a "tender" on him, or is it the other way around? :thinking:

    EDIT
    From Wiki
    Although I don't think it will get this far. We sign him, he stays
