Foster Finishes Third In Offensive Player Of The Year Balloting

Texans running back Arian Foster may have been the leagues leading rusher, but without eye-popping personal statistics like 2000 yards or 20 touchdowns or a playoff team around him, it wasn’t quite enough to sway the voters of the Offensive Player Of The Year Award. Foster finished third behind Tom Brady and Michael Vick in the voting, which was announced yesterday.

While Foster won’t be able to add this trophy to his mantle, he made the Pro Bowl and was an AP All-Pro earlier this week, so he’s already garnered plenty of praise this offseason. Clearly he’ll be the focal point of the Texans offense next season, except against the Colts, where he will be ignored for the first half since he only rushed for 230+ yards in his first meeting with them. Lightweight.
