Foster gets a Texas-sized contract

Tue., March 6, 2012

Arian Foster got what he wanted from the Houston Texans, agreeing to a new five-year contract. Foster’s agent, Mike McCartney, said Monday that a deal was done, though Foster had not yet signed it. Foster was an undrafted free agent in 2009, and made $525,000 last season. He was the NFL’s leading rusher in 2010 with 1,616 yards and ran for 1,224 yards and 10 touchdowns last season. He was due to become a restricted free agent next week, but McCartney said Foster was eager to work out a deal with the Texans. His new deal is worth up to $43.5 million, with $20.75 million guaranteed. He’ll make $18 million in base salary next season, plus incentives.
