[They have] a lot of talent on both sides of the ball. I think they have the right head coach and the right people in the front office.

Im grateful for the people that I met, my family that I made there and my family that lives there now. I got nothing but love for the people and fans of Houston. This is a new chapter of my life.Foster played in only four games last season, hampered by two significant injuries. He suffered a torn groin in training camp that caused him to miss three games.

In that time, Foster has carried the ball an average of 20 times per game, the highest average in the NFL.Foster went to the Texans as an undrafted free agent in 2009. He spent most of that season on the practice squad, being elevated to the active roster in November.The 2010 season marked his breakout year. Foster rushed 33 times for 231 yards in a season--opening win over the Indianapolis Colts, sealing his role as the Texans starting running back.
