Arian Foster Joining Dolphins On One-Year Contract Reportedly Worth Up To $3.5M

New England Patriots fans will be seeing a lot more of Arian Foster in the 2016 season, just not in a Pats uniform.

Foster signed a one-year contract with the Miami Dolphins on Monday. The deal originally was reported by ESPN’s Adam Schefter, and the Dolphins since have confirmed Foster’s signing.

The contract is worth $1.5 million, but Foster could make up to $3.5 million with incentives, a league source told Schefter.

The four-time Pro Bowl running back was released by the Houston Texans earlier this year after spending seven seasons with the team. Foster has dealt with a number of injury problems, causing him to appear in just four games during the 2015 season. He has missed 23 regular-season games over the past three seasons.

The 29-year-old likely will compete for carries with new Dolphins teammates Jay Ajayi and Kenyan Drake.
