Houston Texans running back Arian Foster will be a restricted free agent this offseason and there’s no doubt he wants to remain in Houston.
Foster did an interview with Sports Radio 610 on Radio Row in Indianapolis.
“It’s out of my hands,” Foster said. “It’s not under my control. The Texans are going to make the best move for their organization and their team, and if I happen to be a part of that, that’s a wonderful thing because I want to be a part of it. But if not, I have to continue living my life and they’ll do that with theirs. But I want to – they’ve expressed interest that they want to, and they already know that I want to stay in Houston. I’m just looking for that day. Hopefully, I can. Hopefully, they can make my dream come true, because I just love the city of Houston, man. I really do.”
Foster was asked how much he thinks about his contract situation.
“I think that’s the kind of stuff that only happens during the offseason,” Foster said. “During the season, I’m trying to win ballgames and I’m trying to be the best running back I can for my team. And I think that if you get too caught up in the business end of it, you’ll forget that you actually have to play the game. I just try to play the game, and I’m a firm believer that if you take care of this game and you treat this game and respect it how it’s supposed to be played, I think that eventually it’ll take care of you, and so that’s kind of how I live.”
Foster is one of the main reasons for the Texans’ success this past season and I don’t have any doubt that they will make sure they lock him up to a long-term deal, since he’s one of the NFL’s premiere running backs.
