Report: Cardinals to sign former ASU, Saguaro running back D.J. Foster

The Arizona Cardinals are reportedly set to bring a former Scottsdale Saguaro High School star and Arizona State Sun Devil back to the Valley.

In response to a serious wrist injury suffered by star running back David Johnson, the Cardinals will sign former ASU running back D.J. Foster, NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reported Monday.

The Cardinals will reportedly sign Foster, who won a Super Bowl as a member of the New England Patriots last season, from the Patriots' practice squad.

Foster played running back and wide receiver at ASU. He recorded over 2,300 rushing yards and 2,400 receiving yards for the Sun Devils from 2012-15, and he scored 32 total touchdowns. He rushed for over 5,000 yards at Saguaro HS.

Foster wouldn't be the first former ASU running back to play for the Cardinals. Marion Grice played for the Cardinals in 2014, and Mario Bates played for the Cards from 1998-99.
