Broncos Among Teams To Reach Out To Arian Foster, Patriots Have “Preliminary” Interest

Update:

According to Jason Cole of B/R, the Patriots have “just preliminary” interest in free agent RB Arian Foster.

  • On Thursday, Foster was spotted at Logan Airport in Boston, but Ian Rapoport reports that he was not visiting the Patriots.

Cecil Lammey of 104.3 The Fan, citing multiple sources, reports that the Broncos are one of a “small handful” of NFL teams that have already reached out to free agent RB Arian Foster.

  • Jason La Canfora reported this morning that Foster is progressing well from his Achilles’ injury. Although, he’s still probably a week or two from being able to pass a physical.

Denver elected to match the Dolphins’ restricted offer to C.J. Anderson while also re-signing Ronnie Hillman and using a fourth-round pick on Devontae Booker, so this could be just a general inquiry from the Broncos.

The Dolphins brought him in for a visit back in March, and while they didn’t sign him to a contract after the meeting, it’s possible Miami could still be a landing spot for him this summer.

The Chargers and Seahawks have also been tossed out as speculative landing spots for Foster once he’s healthy.

Foster, 29, was in the final year of his five-year, $43.5 million contract that included $20.75 million guaranteed when he was released in a move that freed up $6,625,000 in cap space for the Texans.

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.
