Back in March, free agent Arian Foster visited with the Miami Dolphins. But the former Houston Texans running back didn’t sign with the team then, and may not be signing with them at this point either.
The Dolphins are not currently pursuing Foster, and will only do so if their own running backs are injured or fail to impress during training camp, according to the Miami Herald’s Barry Jackson.
Foster’s competition for a place on the team would be rookie Kenyan Drake and second-year player Jay Ayaji.
Both of these players have been heavily complimented by their coaches, so to see them cut from the team to give Foster a place on the running back depth chart would be a surprise.
Even if one of the Dolphins’ young running backs was to not make the team, Foster may still not be Miami’s first choice for a veteran running back. The team has already worked out running back Dan Herron this week.
Foster is still held back physically from a torn Achilles he sustained on October 25. According to Foster himself, he will be ready to go in two weeks. After Foster has made a full recovery, he should have little issue finding a spot on an NFL roster. But don’t count on that roster being Miami’s.
