Tonight on NFL Networks Top 100 players of 2011 as voted on by the players. Houston Texans running back Arian Foster checked in at #25.
Arian Foster burst onto the scene last year after being an undrafted free agent out of the University of Tennessee in 2009. Arian Foster was even released by the Texans, cleared waivers and then was signed to the practice squad before he was signed to the active roster in November of 2009 and never looked back.
Arian Foster lead the league in rushing last year narrowly beating, Kansas City Chiefs running back Jamal Charles, in a rushing race that came down to the last week of the season.
Although the rushing title was a nice individual accolade we are sure Arian Foster would have traded it for a chance to compete in the playoffs.
Foster’s wish of the playoffs may not be far off with the addition of Wade Phillips as defensive coordinator. Many are expecting the Houston Texans to finally get over the hump this year and get that shot at the playoffs and a shot at playing for the Lombardi Trophy.
