2018

2017

Foster, who joined the Patriots as an undrafted free agent out of Arizona State, finished up his rookie season with seven carries for 24 yards and one catch for two yards over the course of three games for the Patriots. Every-down NFL work may not be in the cards for Foster, who is on the team's practice squad, but his RB/WR flexibility could help the 6-0, 195-pounder if injuries hit the New England backfield.

2016

As an undrafted free agent, Foster will need to shine in the preseason in order to secure a roster spot, but he could well find his way with a role with the Patriots out of the gate, especially if Dion Lewis (knee) ends up being slowed early on. At 6-foot, 195 pounds, Foster profiles more as a change-of-pace option, with his quick feet potentially making him an asset to the team as a pass-catcher out of the backfield.
