Summary

It remains to be seen what Arian Foster will be capable of this season. While signing with the Miami Dolphins gives him a role, Foster is still rehabing his injury and until we see him on the field, taking hits, we aren't sure how good he can still be. Right now, the best case scenario appears to be him healthy and splitting time with Jay Ajayi. Keep an eye on this though because as our own Dr. Jene Bramel has said, a healthy Foster can be an elite player. We just don't know how healthy he can be anymore. (July 18)

Dolphins | Miami didn't want to lose Arian Foster (Tue Jul 19, 10:02 PM) - Miami Dolphins RB Arian Foster (Achilles') impressed the team in a workout Monday, July 18, and one source said he 'looked good.' The team wanted to move quickly to sign him before he had a chance to board a flight and work out for the Detroit Lions.

Our View: After missing out on C.J. Anderson (Broncos) and Chris Johnson (Cardinals), the Dolphins wanted to get their man....this time. Foster is set to compete with Jay Ajayi for the starting job in 2016.

Dolphins | Arian Foster plays well versus division (Tue Jul 19, 04:03 PM) - Miami Dolphins RB Arian Foster has fared well against the AFC East in his career. In 10 games, Foster has totaled 12 touchdowns and averaged 105 total yards per game.

Our View: Cool...that's a nice bit of history but it doesn't mean Foster is going to get 100 yards and a TD every time he plays within the division. We like Foster's fit in the Adam Gase offense. The spread formations should help the veteran runner see wide rushing lanes to take advantage of. We'll have to see how the split between Foster and Jay Ajayi goes before getting too excited about either prospect.

Dolphins | Arian Foster declares his health (Mon Jul 18, 10:00 PM) - Miami Dolphins RB Arian Foster (Achilles') said Monday, July 18, that he is fully healthy after suffering a ruptured Achilles' tendon last season. He said he still feels like a Pro Bowl-caliber player and intends to show that. 'I don't have any expectations. Just coming here to compete and help the squad out however I can,' Foster said.

Our View: Foster may not be the player he used to be, but he could win the starting job for the Dolphins. Even if he's the starter, we feel the Dolphins should mix in Jay Ajayi to help keep Foster fresh. The Adam Gase offense utilizes spread formations, so Foster--or any RB--is going to have large rushing lanes to take advantage of.

Dolphins | Arian Foster contract details (Mon Jul 18, 05:08 PM) - Updating a previous report, Miami Dolphins RB Arian Foster's one-year deal is worth $1.5 million. It comes with incentives that could maximize the deal at $3.5 million.

Dolphins | Arian Foster joins Miami (Mon Jul 18, 04:32 PM) - Free-agent RB Arian Foster (Texans) signed a one-year deal with the Miami Dolphins Monday, July 18, according to a source. Financial terms were not disclosed.

Our View: Clearly, we'll see soon enough how Foster is progressing. Jay Ajayi has been projected to be the RB1 here but the team has made it clear they'd like to have help. The Dolphins lost Lamar Miller this offseason and missed on C.J. Anderson who stayed with Denver. Chris Johnson was also a target of theirs before he decided to stay with the Cardinals. A healthy Foster clearly is trouble for Ajayi. Although "healthy" is an adjective we haven't used with Foster a lot in the last year. Stay tuned as we like this move for Foster and for the Dolphins.
