Arian Foster To Sign A Five-Year Deal With Texans, According To Reports

The Houston Texans and Arian Foster have agreed to terms on a five-year deal, according to multiple reports. No details have been released yet, but the Houston Chronicle's John McClain has confirmed the Texans and Foster's agent finalized a contract overnight, and that Foster will not receive the franchise tag.

The breakout back was one of the league's bargains last year, rushing for 1,224 yards, catching 53 passes for 617 yards and racking up 12 total touchdowns, all for just over a half million dollars. Foster was an undrafted free agent from Tennessee in 2009.

By avoiding the franchise tag with Foster, it's possible the Texans could apply it to one of their other big name free agents. Outside linebacker / former defensive end Mario Williams is the next big name for the Texans front office to iron out a deal with.
