Adam Schefter of ESPN is reporting the contract details for Foster.
Texans and Arian Foster reached agreement on a five-year, $43.5 million deal that includes $20.75 million guaranteed.— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) March 5, 2012
It wasn't known at first how much Foster would be getting paid, but now we know the skilled running back is set for life.
That's a lot of money for anyone, especially a player that went undrafted.

This is superb news for Houston. Foster has been extremely vital to the Texans' success in recent years, and making sure he's with them for a long time will ensure that they'll be contenders not just in the AFC South, but the entire AFC.
