The Miami Dolphins have come to terms on a one-year contract with Arian Foster.
The financial terms of the deal have not been reported or announced as of yet, but it is likely Miami did not have to spend too much for Foster. The running back is returning from a ruptured Achilles tendon, and was not attracting much interest on the market.
Miami brought Foster in for a workout on Monday and it appears the Dolphins liked what they saw. The 29-year old was set to work out for the Detroit Lions later this week, and that would now be off the table. By signing Foster quickly, Miami avoid a situation where it'd have to out-bid Detroit.
Foster could be a low-risk, high-reward type signing for the Dolphins. Miami was set to head into the season with an obvious lack of depth in its ground game. Jay Ajayi was at the top of the depth chart for the Dolphins and now would likely be moved to the second spot.
If Foster manages to stay on the field for a good percentage of Miami's games, he could give the team some glimpses of his past. In his career, Foster has been to the Pro Bowl four times and has led the NFL in rushing once.
The Dolphins also have Kenyan Drake on the roster and he figures to now be third on the depth chart. Drake is heading into his rookie season with Miami after being selected in the third round of the NFL draft.
