Foster Speaks Out

“When I look at guys that hold out, I understand what they’re doing. I understand that it’s a business and I understand sometimes that’s their only option. I’ve always been one of those guys that when growing up, we weren’t the most financially stable family ever. When I got into the NFL, when I got my first active-roster check, I thought I had made it. I was always grateful for that. I still have friends and still have some family members that are struggling financially. For me to demand money for a game that I get to play, where you get a lot of money, it just seemed weird to me. I’m not saying that it’s wrong for anybody else, to each his own. For myself, I always wanted to present myself, and that’s how I live my life, that money is important because you have to eat and you need clothes and you need shelter. If you’re not happy with 10 dollars, you’re not going to be happy with 100. That was always my philosophy in life. When I’m making League-minimum after leading the League in rushing, I felt that it was just a matter of time and if I did the right things and continued to live my life the way I do (it would all work out). I’m an extreme believer in karma for the most part. If you take care of this game, it will take care of you. Even if it didn’t, something else in my life, I was going to be okay somewhat. I just believe that. I think belief is 90 percent of the battle.”
