Decision on RB Arian Foster Maybe the Biggest This Offseason for Texans


As the Texans contemplate their offseason plans, determining the status of four-time Pro Bowl running back Arian Foster is one of their top priorities, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Foster faces an uncertain offseason as he recovers from a torn Achilles tendon suffered in October after undergoing groin surgery in August. Foster is entering the final year of a five-year, $43.5 million contract and is due a non-guaranteed $6.5 million base salary next season along with a $500,000 roster bonus to be paid $31,250 per game active. He has a $8.925 million salary-cap figure.

Whether Foster plays for the Texans again, he has been actively rehabbing from his injury and hopes to play next season.

“He’s been in our building quite a bit working hard to get back,” Texans coach Bill O’Brien said. “He’s a really good guy, good teammate, missed being out there, obviously he wanted to be out there helping us. He’s been a great player for the Houston Texans. He’s working hard to get back.”

The Texans have to weigh Foster’s durability coming off an injury-plagued season where he had two surgeries along with his $8.925 million salary-cap figure. Foster turns 30 in August.

“Well, we’ll have to see how healthy he is,” Texans owner Bob McNair said during then NFL owners meetings this month. “But until we know that, there’s really not much you can think about.”
