Texans sign Arian Foster to long term deal

HOUSTON, TEXAS (AP) - The agent for Arian Foster says the running back has agreed to a five-year deal with the Houston Texans.

Foster's agent Mike McCartney said Monday a deal was done, but financial terms were not immediately available,

Sources have reported it is worth $43.5 million with $20.75 million guaranteed.

Foster was an undrafted free agent in 2009, and made $525,000 last season.

He was the NFL's leading rusher in 2010 with 1,616 yards and ran for 1,224 yards and 10 touchdowns last season.

Re-signing Foster was one of Houston's top priorities after the Texans earned their first division title and playoff victory last season.

The Texans also must make a decision on outside linebacker Mario Williams, who's an unrestricted free agent.
