The Miami Dolphins are continuing their search for a running back, moving on to their next meeting, this time with former Houston Texans running back Arian Foster:

The Dolphins have been looking for a replacement for former starting running back Lamar Miller, who signed with the Texans as Foster's replacement this offseason. Foster tore his Achilles tendon during the season last year and was released by the Texans, the team that originally signed him as an undrafted free agent in 2009, earlier this month. Foster tore his Achilles in the fourth quarter of the Texans' blowout Week 6 loss to the Dolphins.

Foster has carried the ball 1,454 times in his seven-year career, gaining 6,472 yards with 54 touchdowns. He has been selected to the Pro Bowl four times and was a First-Team All-Pro selection in 2010. He led the league in rushing yards in 2010, carries in 2012, and rushing touchdowns in both 2010 and 2012.

The Dolphins have been looking for a complimentary back or a starter that they can pair with second-year running back Jay Ajayi. They signed restricted free agent C.J. Anderson to an offer sheet earlier in the free agency period, but the Denver Broncos matched the offer and retained his rights.
