Texans RB D'Onta Foreman was arrested early Sunday morning for marijuana possession and unlawful carrying of a weapon, according to the Austin American-Statesman. Foreman's attorney has since disputed the charges, claiming the pot wasn't Foreman's and the handgun was registered. We'll see where this goes, but it's obviously not a good look for the rookie. Foreman is set to battle Alfred Blue this summer for the backup job behind Lamar Miller.
Texas RB D’Onta Foreman was selected by the Texans in the 3rd round of the draft. After spending his first 2 years in Austin as a backup, Foreman exploded in 2016. He carried 323 times for 2,028 yards (6.3 YPC) and 15 scores. No one averaged more than his 184.4 yards per game. Foreman’s efforts earned him the Doak Walker Award as the nation’s top RB. A stress fracture in his foot prevented him from working out at the Combine, but the 6’0, 233-pounder reportedly clocked a 4.45-second 40 time at his Pro Day. That’d give him the class’ 2nd-best Speed Score, behind only Leonard Fournette. Foreman’s tape didn’t blow us away, though, and he caught just 7 passes in last year’s workhorse campaign. He’ll battle for the backup job behind Lamar Miller and is unlikely to threaten for the starting job anytime soon. Miller is just 26 and signed through 2019. Foreman is strictly and draft-and-stash dynasty pick.
