Arian Foster gets extension

http://www.nfl.com/news/story/09000d5d82762a45/article/agent-says-foster-texans-agree-on-fiveyear-extension?module=HP11_headline_stack

Terms of the deal have not been released yet in terms of money but he gets a five year extension. He really deserves this IMHO. The man has been flat out playin the last couple seasons and really carried that offense this past season with no Schuab half the season and Andre Johnson in and out of the line up.
Can't wait to see the numbers as they will really impact Matt Forte and Ray Rice going forward!
good for him,
Meh, its the system. Tate put up similar numbers as his back up.
He's excellent and deserves the big bucks.

When your down to your third string quarterback and you can't keep your number one receiver healthy so defenses are loading the box because they know you can't throw and your still busting out 100 yard games then the player deserves every bit as much the credit as the "system". A system can only protect for so long and for so many situations. Many were saying the same about our quarterback this year until we beat the Saints.

$20.75M guaranteed, of course a lot will come from Base salary incentive guarantees, and roster bonuses, like Brooks' deal.

Now 3rd highest paid RB behind Adrian Peterson and Chris Johnson.

Mangini said it best. saying someone is a system player is stupid. he tried the same system NE ran in CLE and we all know how that turned out
