Arian Foster strikes deal with Texans

HOUSTON (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.

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.

According to cbssports.com Foster's contract is reportedly worth $43.5 million over the life of the deal, with a guaranteed $20.75 million.
