Yesterday morning, we learned that your Houston Texans decided to cut D’Onta Foreman, who they selected in the third round of the 2017 NFL Draft and was presumed to be the heavy favorite to back up Lamar Miller at running back in 2019. While Bill O’Brien had not exactly been heaping praise upon Foreman during training camp, it was still a surprise to see the team decide they’d be better off without him in early August, particularly with nothing approaching a proven commodity behind Miller on the depth chart.
It would appear that another NFL team with a need at running back is not as down on Foreman as the Texans are.
The Indianapolis Colts, AFC South rival and the squad that officially ended the Texans’ 2018 season, claimed Foreman off waivers this afternoon.

If Foreman can make the Colts’ 53-man roster out of camp, he’ll get a chance to exact revenge on the team that drafted him twice in the next few months. How does that hit you? Do you think Foreman will be reborn in Indianapolis? Or will the same problems that plagued him in Houston mar (or even end) his time in Indy?
