The Houston Texans have announced they have released long-time starting running back Arian Foster. Adding another team to the mix that will be looking for a new starting running back in 2016.
Foster has had a quality seven year career with the Texans, rushing for 6,472, 54 touchdowns, adding 249 receptions for 2,263 yards and 14 touchdowns. However Foster spent most of the 2015 season on injured reserved, playing in only four games, rushing for 163 yards and one touchdown. Foster also spent half of the 2013 season injured, playing in only eight games.
Foster, who will turn 30 before the 2016 season starts may not be a starting running back anymore, but could provide a team with quality depth if he stays healthy and should have no trouble finding a team that wants him.
In a deep free-agent running back class, with a lot of teams looking for quality backs, don't expect foster to remain unemployed for long.
