The Toronto Argonauts have signed former NFL running back D.J. Foster.

The 27-year-old Foster played 23 games for the Arizona Cardinals between 2017 and 2020, catching 18 balls for 140 yards and eight rushes for 21 yards.

The six-foot, 205-pound tailback broke into the NFL as a undrafted free agent with the New England Patriots in 2016 and went on to win Super Bowl LI with the team.

The former Arizona State University Sun Devil spent four years at the Pac-12 school (2012-2015) where he rushed for over 2,300 yards and 17 touchdowns while hauling in 220 receptions for over 2,400 receiving yards and 11 more touchdowns. Foster led the nation in receiving yards for a running back in 2013 with 653.
