However, Jackson says that second-year RB Jay Ajayi is considered to be the front-runner for the Dolphins’ starting job this season.
Recent reports have linked Foster to the Broncos and Patriots as potential options, but it seems like there is just preliminary interest from teams right now.
The expectation has been that Foster was likely to wait until he was 100 percent this summer before seriously pursuing an opportunity with a new team.
It’s worth mentioning that the Dolphins did bring Foster in for a visit back in March.
The Chargers and Seahawks have also been tossed out as speculative landing spots for Foster once he’s healthy, but there has been little buzz about either being serious options for him.
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.
