ESPN's Jeremy Fowler reports free agent Arian Foster (Achilles') expects to be ready for training camp.
Per Fowler, Foster is "hungry" to regain his 2012 form. Aren't we all. Fowler also reports three teams have "recently inquired" about Foster's status. It's tough to believe Foster will be truly 100 percent by this time next month. He is still only six months removed from going down, and has never been a particularly fast healer. Foster will find a new home before Week 1, but not necessarily before camp. Jun 20 - 2:58 PM

The Miami Herald reports the Dolphins are "not pursuing" free agent Arian Foster (Achilles').

The Herald's Barry Jackson reports the Fins will only sign Foster "if they have an injury or if their young backs falter." OC Clyde Christensen said third-round RB Kenyan Drake "has been excellent" in OTAs, while Jay Ajayi appears on solid footing as Miami's starter. In late May, Foster indicated he would be fully recovered from last year's Achilles' tear toward the end of June. ESPN's Adam Schefter expects Foster to begin working out for teams closer to the start of NFL training camps. So it doesn't sound like he'll be signing anywhere before late July.

ESPN's Adam Schefter gets the "sense" free agent Arian Foster (Achilles') will start working out for teams in late July.

Foster could probably pass a physical now, but he wants the extra month or two to rebuild his strength and put his best foot forward. At 30 years old (in August), there's no need for Foster to be at OTAs anyway. Training camps start the final week of July. Expect Foster to find a home by then.

Free agent RB Arian Foster (Achilles') said he is about a month away from full health.

Foster tore his Achilles' at the end of October. "I probably need another month to get where I am, the person everyone is use to seeing," Foster said. "I can definitely play but I need another month to be where I want to be and be at that Pro Bowl level." Close to full health, Foster should be comfortable signing with a new team in the next month. The Dolphins have been the strongest link so far, but the Redskins would make sense as well.

According to the Miami Herald's Barry Jackson, the Dolphins "continue to monitor" free agent Arian Foster.

The Dolphins have been the team most-heavily linked to Foster since he visited them in March. Foster is expected to be medically cleared in as little as a week, so it looks like his market is going to heat up well before training camp. The Dolphins have said all the right things about second-year RB Jay Ajayi, but he can't get too comfortable atop the depth chart.

CSN Mid-Atlantic's Rich Tandler wrote "it really feels like" the Redskins plan to add another running back.

With Matt Jones, a seventh-round rookie with serious injury questions marks (Keith Marshall) and not much else at running back, it would make sense for the Redskins to dip into the market. Pierre Thomas spent time with Washington last season, but he is more of a passing-down option. Arian Foster would make the most sense, but he might not be the same player following an Achilles' tear from which he is still not fully recovered. Jones looks like the clear workhorse right now, but that could change if Washington brings in a veteran.

ESPN's Mike Reiss reports free agent RB Arian Foster did not meet with the Patriots on his recent visit to Boston.

Foster posted a picture on Instagram of his family at Fenway Park, sparking speculation he was in Boston to meet with the Patriots. Bleacher Report's Jason Cole reported Friday the Patriots have shown "preliminary" interest in Foster, but Cole could have just been connecting some dots. Still a couple weeks away from being able to pass a physical, it is unlikely Foster signs anywhere before June.

According to Bleacher Report's Jason Cole, the Patriots have shown "preliminary" interest in free agent RB Arian Foster.

Foster's market has been slow to develop while recovering from a torn Achilles' and going on age 30. New England's running game was nonexistent last year after LeGarrette Blount (hip) and Dion Lewis (ACL) went down. Foster could prove to be a worthy flier if he can stay healthy. Still a week or two away from being able to pass a physical, Foster figures to sign somewhere before training camp. From a fantasy standpoint, New England's high-octane offense could present one of his better-case scenarios.
May 20 - 4:48 PM

CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora reports free agent Arian Foster (Achilles') is "progressing well," but is probably "a week or two away" from being able to pass a physical.

Foster's market should heat up whenever he's medically cleared. The soon-to-be 30-year-old made a visit to the Dolphins in March, and they could be a top suitor after not making any moves at running back in the draft or free agency. Foster has also been linked to the Seahawks on two separate occasions.
May 20 - 9:12 AM

The Union-Tribune San Diego's Tom Krasovic doesn't expect the Chargers to pursue or sign free agent Arian Foster.

After it was reported earlier this week that Melvin Gordon underwent microfracture knee surgery in January, ESPN's Mark Dominik hinted the Chargers could pursue Foster. But Foster, of course, is about to turn 30 (in August) and is coming off a major injury of his own after tearing his Achilles'. Foster still isn't healthy or ready to contribute, but will draw interest when he is.
May 11 - 12:07 PM

ESPN 710 Seattle considers the Seahawks a landing spot for free agent Arian Foster (Achilles).

Foster visited Miami this week, but left without a deal. He plans to wait until he’s healthy to sign with a team. With Thomas Rawls (ankle) on track for training camp, Foster wouldn’t be more than a committee option. Foster would have to accept a team-friendly deal to play in Seattle.
Apr 1 - 6:05 PM

Free agent Arian Foster (Achilles') left his Dolphins visit without a contract.

#AsExpected. The Dolphins are probably waiting for Foster's price to come down, while Foster will likely gamble he can command more once he's further along in his rehab. Setting up a second visit elsewhere could speed things up between Miami and the ex-Texan. The Dolphins have appeared desperate to add a proven body behind second-year pro Jay Ajayi. It's almost as if the 'Fins should not have let Lamar Miller walk in free agency.
Mar 29 - 4:57 PM

The Miami Herald reports the Dolphins aren't expected to rush into a deal with free agent Arian Foster (Achilles').

Both sides have made this clear, with Foster's camp leaking he won't sign anywhere until he's "completely healthy." Miami is trying to establish where Foster is at in his rehab, and will undoubtedly try to wait for Foster's price to come down. Foster is gambling he'll be more valuable when he's closer to full speed in May or June.
Mar 28 - 3:02 PM

Bleacher Report's Jason Cole reports free agent Arian Foster (Achilles') won't sign a contract until he's "completely healthy."

Foster is visiting the Dolphins on Tuesday, but Cole reports he won't be "signing with anyone, anytime soon." Per Cole, that may not be until late May or June. That's fine in theory, but if the Dolphins — who have been on a quixotic quest for a running back this offseason — make the right offer, Foster will undoubtedly sign. Cole's report is likely an attempt by Foster's agent to increase his bargaining power.
Mar 28 - 2:04 PM

The Palm Beach Post reports free agent Arian Foster's visit with the Dolphins is "exploratory."

The Dolphins reportedly want to see where Foster is medically after rupturing his Achilles' last October. Foster was cleared for light jogging in January and has been working out twice a day at his brother's gym, but it is unlikely he is ready to pass a physical. It appears unlikely Miami offers Foster a contract on this visit, but he could be an option after the draft.
