- According to Fowler, at least three teams have recently inquired about Foster.
Adam Schefter of ESPN reported a few weeks ago that the sense was that Foster will work out for NFL teams at some point in late July. Schefter added that Foster would probably be able to pass a physical right now, but waiting another six weeks or so would obviously help to ensure he’s physically ready to go.
Several months ago, Foster visited with the Dolphins, but did not sign a contract with the team. Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald recently reported that the Dolphins aren’t pursuing Foster right now, but admitted that he could be an option down the road if they sustain an injury to one of their younger running backs.
The Broncos, Redskins, Raiders, Chargers, and Seahawks have also been tossed out as speculative landing spots for Foster once healthy.
Foster, 29, wound up signing on with the Texans as an undrafted free agent out of Tennessee back in 2009. He spent seven years with the Texans before they released him in a move that freed up $6,625,000 in cap space for Houston a few months ago.
In 2015, Foster ran for 163 yards on 63 carries (2.6 YPC) to go along with 22 receptions for 227 yards receiving and and three touchdowns.
