"There comes a time in every athlete's career when their ambition and their body are no longer on the same page. I've reach that point." Foster also said: "I am walking away in peace. I know it is not commonplace to do it midseason but my body just can't take the punishment this game asks for any longer." The retirement is effective immediately. Arian Foster former teammate Johnathan Joseph  comments after Texans game versus the Broncos: "Foster was a great running back with the Texans as far as all time. He was great, unique guy off the field with some strong beliefs. He had a great frame of mind and I just wish him well in the future. That's the way football works though. Everybody has a different life span in this league. Obviously he did it for a long time in this league so he really didn't have anything left to prove." We here at martyarnold.com wish Mr. Foster all the best in his future endeavors. Stay tuned for more updates.
