Former Tennessee running back Arian Foster spent his first seven NFL seasons in a Houston Texans uniform, but the former Vols standout soon may have a new address for the 2016 season.
According to a report from Pro Football Talk, which cites his agent as a source, Foster has agreed to a one-year deal to play for the Miami Dolphins.

Foster, who is one of the most successful undrafted players in league history, has 6,472 yards rushing and 2,268 yards receiving through seven NFL seasons.
He was limited to just four games last year due to a season-ending Achilles injury. Foster’s recovery from the injury is still an unknown, and at 29 years old, he’s quickly approaching the age at which NFL running backs typically experience a decline.
In an interesting twist of fate, Foster will look to help Dolphins RB Jay Ajayi replace Lamar Miller in Miami’s backfield after the former Dolphins starter signed with the Texans earlier in the offseason to serve as Foster’s replacement.
Foster will play alongside Dolphins starting QB Ryan Tannehill, who played his college ball at Texas A&M.
