MIAMI (AP) -- A person familiar with the situation says four-time Pro Bowl running back Arian Foster has agreed to terms on a one-year deal with the Miami Dolphins.

The person confirmed the deal to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity Monday because it had not been signed.

Foster, who spent the past seven years with the Houston Texans, is trying to come back from a torn Achilles tendon that ended his 2015 season in late October. The injury happened against the Dolphins in Miami.

The Dolphins were looking to add depth at running back after losing Lamar Miller to the Texans in free agency. Jay Ajayi is expected to start after rushing for 187 yards as a rookie last year.
