On Thursday morning, the Houston Texans decided to cut Arian Foster.
In the afternoon, he posted a heartfelt message to his fans.
The message reads:
in 2009 I flew to Houston with every piece of clothing I owned and told my mother I wasn’t coming home. I’ll find my way. ambitious for an undrafted rookie that knew nothing about anything. but that’s exactly what I did. this ride has had a multitude of ups and downs, but perspective is key. I’ve got 7 years of beautiful memories with teammates, staff and coaches I’ll never forget. thank you all for being a part of this journey. people that I call friends and brothers have all contributed to the success of what we did on the field, and also to the person that I am off. with everything in me, I love and respect the men and women you are. you are a part of me for good. and to the city of houston, I genuinely appreciate every ounce of love I’ve ever gotten. from seeing a small kid to an 80 year old man wear my jersey. I never took it for granted. we’re all just guessing our way through life, being the best people we can, and the people of this city have put a lot of joy in the hearts of my self and my family. onward we march, it’s been real. nothing but love on this end. 🙏🏾
There’s no doubt the people of Houston appreciate such a thoughtful and sincere farewell.
