Arian Foster is the greatest running back in Houston Texans history. He's also been one of the best running backs in the NFL since bursting on the scene as a full-time starter in 2010 (really, he flashed what he would become during the final two games of the 2009 season, which he started due to every other running back on the team being injured).

Arian Foster has not played 16 games in a season since 2012. He is coming off a torn Achilles. Arian Foster will turn 30 years old on August 24, 2016, and he has a cap hit of $8,925,000.00 next season under his current contract, with $6,500,000.00 of that figure being base salary.

The running backs not named Arian Foster on the current roster and under contract for next season are named Alfred Blue, Akeem Hunt, and Kenny Hilliard. Chris Polk and Jonathan Grimes are free agents.

Some people have already gone on record to voice the belief that the Texans will release Arian Foster this offseason. Time for you to put your name on it. Will your Houston Texans cut Arian Foster this offseason?  Not should they; will they?  Cast your vote and talk about it in the Comments below.
