    Is it effective immediately, or is he going to play out the season?

    Just read this. Good for him. He is leaving on his own terms. I appreciate that he came here to give it a go but it seemed pretty clear that he was just not the same.

    Good luck to him going forward. He is clearly an intelligent person and will do well in the future.

    I like the shot at the NFL and concussions at the end.

    So much for those saying Foster had taught Ajayi how to be more professional and or was doing so now. I guess he figured his work here was done.

    To be honest I never believe that stuff, its pretty rare that one player will honestly help another player learn the came when they are fighting for the same roster spot/position. More often than not you hear of the opposite; where one player doesnt really ever say **** to the other. You're on your own on that one buddy.

    I wish Foster well though.

    He had a good run. Hope he finds a good post football career.

    LOL. He was a low-key me-first player.

    I could tell something like this was going to happen when he dropped the 3rd down pass and looked like he didn't give a **** on the sidelines.

    Also on Tannehill for throwing it 100mph on a 2 yard pass.

    His time has come and I wish him the best of luck. He's a smart dude so I'm confident his after-football life will be bright.

    He did a whole lot of nothing for us, so I'm glad he's quitting. Hopefully his roster spot can be taken by someone who contributes.

    Interesting that there is no nod to the Texans or the fans in Houston.

    Hopefully we get Pead back, or a bruising FB.

    He didn't seem engaged at all yesterday. So yeah, it was a good call.

    Knowing now how Gase had been, Foster may have been told he was getting cut and instead, went this route.

    Actually you hear the opposite most of the time. We even had one of our players a couple of years back when we were one of the youngest teams say how if he were in charge he would bring in vets at every unit. It wouldn't even matter if they all made the final roster. Veteran players come in and set an example on how to be a professional. It doesn't have to be a "take them under their wing" scenario. In this case, Ajayi comes in expecting to win the starting job by default. By all accounts he's making multiple mistakes and doesn't know the playbook well. He loses his job to the vet who's clearly lost a step but knows his assignments inside and out. I have no doubt that Gase pointed to Foster and told Ajayi, 'you want the job?, That's how you have to act'.

    Ricky Williams 2.0.

    Too funny how so many are saying he's leaving on his own terms. If I really cared it would be interesting to see if they had the same sentiment about Ricky leaving on HIS own terms.

    Wouldn't shock me, especially how in Fosters retirement announcement he stated that he thanked the Dolphins for allowing him to, "bow out with grace" aka retiring instead of getting cut. Either way congrats to Foster, hell of a career. I lived in Houston during his prime and got to see him a lot, including one of his breakout games his rookie season live in person week 17 in 2009. He was still wearing #37 that game instead of his regular #23 and his big game helped the Texans beat the Patriots in OT which secured their first winning season ever at 9-7.

    Ajayi made that decision a lot easier for him. I'm sure he doesn't want to finish his career as back up, which is what he would be.

    Really that's not a real comparison. Ricky bailed out because the was about to get smacked with a suspension and at the time he was the best running back in football. Worse it was the eve of training camp when he did.

    In this case, as far as we know Foster is not facing a suspension of any type, is clearly not the running back he used to be and his body is breaking down.

    Sorry Tin but he was about to be cut and/or had been demoted. He saw the writing on the wall and left. Just like Ricky.

    You hear. You can hear many things, especially from outside sources that have nothing to do with reality. Its akin to a nice fluff piece.
