Foster's agent, Mike McCartney tweeted out the news by congratulating his client. The former Texan could be at the top of the Dolphins' depth chart after their leading rusher last season, Lamar Miller, agreed to join Foster's old team. The 6'1 tailback was also scheduled to work out with the Lions later this week.
The 29-year-old was released by Houston on March 3rd, could not receive a pay cut to help the team out, as he was set to make $9 million this upcoming season. This past year was haunted by injuries, cutting Foster's availability to just four games. He suffered a torn groin early on, and then a torn Achilles tendon later in the year.
Since becoming Houston's starter in 2010, Foster has had a hard time staying healthy. He has suffered multiple hamstring injuries, a torn meniscus, along with injuries to his knee and back.
His best season was in 2010, after signing as an undrafted free agent in 2009. Foster ran for 1,616 yards in that first season, en route to his first of four Pro Bowls. He is now hoping a change of scenery will help find more health, along with the production that he came to the NFL with.
