In a new documentary, Texans running back Arian Foster admitted to accepting money during his senior season at the University of Tennessee.

Foster was a member of the Volunteers' football team from 2004-2008.

"I really didn't have any money," Foster said. "I had to either pay the rent or buy some food. I remember the feeling of like, 'Man, be careful.' But there's nothing wrong with it. And you're not going to convince me that there is something wrong with it."

The documentary, titled Schooled: The Price of College Sports, was produced by the television network Epix. It details the amount of money college athletic programs bring in at the expense of the student-athletes themselves.

The NCAA has a four-year statute of limitations, which could put the Volunteers out of harm's way given that Foster's allegation occurred five years ago.
