“I’ve just been relaxing,” Foster said to FOX Sports Southwest’s Patti Smith on Saturday at his youth football camp in Pearland, via HoustonTexans.com. “I’ve just been relaxing and working really hard. I think this has probably (been) one of my most intense training offseasons I’ve had since I’ve been in the NFL. I just want to bounce back. I didn’t feel like I had the best season last year.”
Foster had a pretty good season in 2012 by averaging 4.1 yards per carry. You also have to remember back up running back Ben Tate was hurt a lot and that put the full load on Foster.
“I set a lot of personal goals, a lot of things that I do,” Foster said. “I just didn’t feel like I was at my best, and it’s gonna change this year.”
Foster has been training with his brother who is a former track star.
“(I’ve) just refocused and rededicated myself to another level, and hopefully it shows,” Foster said. “I’m not traveling. I’m not doing a lot. I’m here in Houston and I’m training.”
Foster is very happy that Greg Jones is the Texans’ new fullback.
“Man, I was extremely thankful for that,” Foster said. “He’s been a veteran in this league for a long time, blocking for (Jacksonville Jaguars running back) Maurice Jones-Drew. He’s just a big, physical specimen back there, and he’s gonna help us out.”
