If the Houston Texans have plans to franchise restricted free agent running back Arian Foster, then it won't be the worst thing in the world, says Foster's agent Mike McCartney.
"The Texans have to do what's right for them, and we'll adjust accordingly. It won't affect us in any way," McCartney told 790-AM in Houston.
Most players disdain the thought of the franchise tag being placed on them, but for Foster, who is an undrafted free agent made good, even the top restricted tender of a first-round pick as compensation might not be enough to ward off running back needy teams from coming after him with an offer sheet.
If Foster is given the franchise tag and plays under it without an extension, he would earn $7.7 million in 2012. Plus, that gives McCartney and Foster a nice number to start at in negotiating a market value long-term deal with the Texans.
