Houston Texans running back Arian Foster told ESPN’s Colin Cowherd of The Herd that he’s seen and been around guys that juice.
“I’ve seen and been around guys who juice,” Foster said in a recent radio interview with ESPN’s Colin Cowherd.
It’s important to note that Foster did not say when, if it was while in high school or college at the University of Tennessee or in the NFL with the Texans.
Nor did he name any players.
“I’ve seen all kinds of things,” Foster said. “If you can’t get motivated, you can’t get motivated.”
Deer-antler spray was a hot topic during the Super Bowl, but Foster said he has no interest in that — or anything else that could help his performance.
“I have always been a firm believer of anything that I need can come from the ground,” Foster told Cowherd. “It can come from earth.
“Anything else, I never felt the need. In college, a lot of people took creatine. That was a big thing in college. I never took creatine. I never took muscle shakes or none of that.
“I’ve always been a firm believer of hard work and doing things the way I have always done it.”
When I played high school football back in the late ’90’s creatine was big. I think at every level of football, players are trying to get that edge and some are willing to even take illegal drugs to be the best.
I’ve always been a believer in doing things the natural, normal way. It’s great to hear Foster has that same belief.
