The Splash Zone 10/25/16: Arian Foster Announces His Retirement

Welcome to the Splash Zone, the quickest way to get your day started off right. We bring you a rundown of Miami Dolphins news from the last 24 hours

Though Arian Foster may have been with the Dolphins for a short amount of time, he was one of my favorite players to watch when he played for the Houston Texans. Foster announced his retirement from football yesterday. Foster was such a fun player to watch. It's terrible that injuries had to derail his career and forced him to call it quits. Foster will remain one of my favorite players and I will never forget that game he had against us in 2009 when he burst onto the scene.

You can check out that story here, and the rest of the day's round-up below.
