Arian Foster Out in Houston

After 7 years with the Houston Texans, they have decided to cut one of their greatest players ever.  Arian Foster will be playing for a different team next season.  Much like Roddy White, Arian Foster has spent his entire career with the Texans.  With nearly 6500 yards rushing in the regular season he has more than double the next leading rusher in their franchise history.  He is 5th all time receiving as well with over 2200 yards receiving.  The Texans already got rid of their leading receiver last season which actually looks like a pretty decent move according to the stats.  No one really knows whether this is a good move or not, but the amount of cap space that is cleared for next season is $6.25 million.  That’s quite a bit of cheddar for the Texans to go out and find someone else.

“in 2009 I flew to Houston with every piece of clothing I owned and told my mother I wasn’t coming home. I’ll find my way. ambitious for an undrafted rookie that knew nothing about anything. but that’s exactly what I did. this ride has had a multitude of ups and downs, but perspective is key. I’ve got 7 years of beautiful memories with teammates, staff and coaches I’ll never forget. thank you all for being a part of this journey. people that I call friends and brothers have all contributed to the success of what we did on the field, and also to the person that I am off. with everything in me, I love and respect the men and women you are. you are a part of me for good. and to the city of houston, I genuinely appreciate every ounce of love I’ve ever gotten. from seeing a small kid to an 80 year old man wear my jersey. I never took it for granted. we’re all just guessing our way through life, being the best people we can, and the people of this city have put a lot of joy in the hearts of my self and my family. onward we march, it’s been real. nothing but love on this end. 🙏🏾” Arian Foster
