Arian Foster was the league’s most productive running back last year and is set to make only $480,000 in 2011. A lot of players in a similar situation would seek more money immediately, but Foster will be patient.
John McClain of the Houston Chronicle wrote in a chat this week that Foster says he’ll report to camp instead of holding out a new deal. Even though his coach Gary Kubiak heartily endorsed Foster as a top-100 NFL player, the third-year player is fine with proving himself again before getting his reward.
Since Foster was an undrafted free agent, he’ll be a restricted free agent in 2012. That’s when he should get paid.
