Texans’ Foster rewards linemen with Segways
I can’t do anything without them. It was just my way of giving back to the big fellas.
” — Arian Foster
The star running back presented each with a Segway personal transporter on Wednesday.
The linemen screamed with delight when they discovered their new toys, and learned how to ride them with help from Foster, who has had one for a while.
“I can’t do anything without them,” Foster said of Houston’s linemen. “It was just my way of giving back to the big fellas.”
Foster said they were always getting on his case about him riding his Segway everywhere.
“I feel like all of them big hogs up front can enjoy the joy that I get from riding my Segway,” Foster said, according to the Houston Chronicle. “Guys like Chris Myers and (Duane) Brown and Wade Smith, they’re always getting on me about riding my Segway. ‘You can’t walk? You’re too good to walk?’
“I was like, ‘No, man. I would just rather ride wheels.’ I saw a little jealousy in their eyes when they were talking about me, so I figured I’d get all the linemen a gift.”
Foster, who has 1,313 yards this season, leads the NFL with 14 rushing touchdowns.
