Arian Foster
Save for four games at the end of his career with the Miami Dolphins, Arian Foster was with the Houston Texans for the duration of his career.  Foster was a sweet pickup for Houston as the Running Back went undrafted in 2009 out of the University of Tennessee.  Foster would prove in his sophomore season to all those who failed to draft him that they made a mistake. 

That year (2010) would see Arian Foster lead the National Football League in Rushing Yards, Rushing Touchdowns and Yards from Scrimmage in a season that would see him be named a First Team All-Pro for the first and only time.  Foster would remain a dynamic force for the Texans over the next few seasons, accruing four Pro Bowls in total and would lead the NFL in Touchdowns twice (2010 & 2012).  Basically, for a four year stretch when Houston needed a TD, it was Foster that the team looked at to punch it in.

Foster was a beast but the relative brevity of his career works against him.
