Houston Texans: Arian Foster is a Voice Greatly Missed in the World of Social Media

Houston Texans’ running back Arian Foster has been called a multitude of things. A poet, a pacifist, a philosopher and even the most interesting man in the NFL.

Foster is outspoken about his beliefs which has always made him an excellent Twitter read. He announced his silence a few months back, and has stuck to his guns and stayed eerily quiet. When he was present, he did a great job at giving fans and the media a peak inside the mind of one of the best players in football.

The NFL possesses a more interesting and accessible product when players get involved in intelligent conversation with fans and media.

Here are a few of his Twitter highlights:

He does a great job of giving you a peak inside the locker room, his head and challenges surrounding professional athletes:

He has observations about the state and scope of the media today:

He shares all of our sentiments about the Pro Bowl:

Foster gave a heartfelt press conference about finally being able to support his mother after he signed his first big contract. He also expressed his excitement here:

Foster has proven to be one of the more intelligent and introspective players currently in the NFL. His silence is possibly due to comments he’s made about the current state of affairs of the league as one of its more prominent members.

Here’s to hoping he comes back soon.
