HOUSTON (CBS Houston) As the Texans head into OTAs (organized team activities) on May 20, one player hopes to be noticeably improved from last year.  Running back Arian Foster, starting his fifth year with the Texans, says he has had the most intense training offseasons of his NFL career.  What motivates Foster?

“I didn’t feel like I had the best season last year,” Foster admitted on the Texans All-Access show on SportsRadio 610.

In 2012, Foster averaged 4.1 yards per carry, down from 4.4 yards per carry in 2011 and 4.9 yards per carry in 2010.  He did, however, finish first overall in the NFL for rushing touchdowns (15).  He also finished 6th in the NFL in rushing yards with 1,424 yards in 351 rushes.

The once undrafted 26-year old had high standards for himself and his contribution to the team in 2012 and felt disappointed when he did not reach them.

“I set a lot of personal goals,” Foster explained.  ” I just didn’t feel like I was at my best and that’s going to change this year.”

Foster has revised his workout by cutting back on travel to stay in Houston to focus on his workouts and training regimen.  He has also given up Twitter, Internet, and television in order to eliminate unnecessary distractions.  He does not even follow the NFL Draft says he has not even had a chance to look at the Texans 2013-2014 schedule.

“I have no idea who we are playing.  We’ll cross that bridge when we get there,” said Foster.

While he did not elaborate on the specifics of his personal goals, Foster did say it included self-improvement, both physical and mental.

“Just training, just refocusing, rededicating myself to another level.  Hopefully it shows.”
