"It’s out of my hands," Foster said. "It’s not under my control. The Texans are going to make the best move for their organization and their team, and if I happen to be a part of that, that’s a wonderful thing because I want to be a part of it. But if not, I have to continue living my life and they’ll do that with theirs. But I want to -- they’ve expressed interest that they want to, and they already know that I want to stay in Houston."
Foster, an undrafted free agent in 2009, was the NFL's leading rusher in 2010 and has made the Pro Bowl in back-to-back seasons. Entering his fourth season, he will be restricted, meaning he can sign an offer sheet with another team but the Texans can retain him by matching the offer.
