Arian Foster, who tore his Achilles tendon after playing in four games during the 2015 season, could be looking for a job come the NFL off-season. The ever-injured 30-year-old running back was held to a career-low 163 yards rushing on only 63 carries.

With a non-guaranteed $6.5 million in base salary due to him this coming season, it is not hard to figure out why the Texans would be ready to move on from Foster. When Foster was dealing with a groin injury last summer, owner Bob McNair said he wasn’t surprised because “it seems like every year [Foster’s] had a soft tissue injury.” That would seem to be more fuel for the release fire, but McNair said this week that it is too soon to make a call in any direction.

A pay-cut could be on the table as well, but a change of scenery is more likely to be on the horizon for Arian. Foster has rushed for 6,469 yards in a Texans uniform, the only professional one he has ever worn. If he does get released, the market for the aging back will be tepid, but I do not doubt he will be given at least one more opportunity to show he can still make it in the NFL.
