According to John McClain of the Houston Chronicle, the Houston Texans have reached a 5-year deal with free-agent RB Arian Foster.  Over the past two seasons,  Foster has played in 29 regular-season games as the Texans’ starting RB, and in that short time, has produced 2,840 rushing yards on only 605 attempts, the most in the NFL. His 97.9 yards per game also have lead the NFL the past two years. Foster was arguably the top free agent this offseason, but the Texans were never going to let him leave Houston. This now opens up the team’s ability to use their franchise tag on free-agent DE/OLB Mario Williams, which they have until the end of today to do so. If the team opts to let Super Mario walk, he’ll instantly become the top free-agent available.
