"Actually, I got a call from the Seattle Seahawks in the seventh round and they said: 'We have back-to-back seventh-round picks and we are thinking about taking you. What do you think?'"
That's when Foster got himself in trouble.
"I was really upset about how the whole draft went (up to that point) and my attitude was very bad," he recalled. "I said (in a nonchalant tone), 'Yeah, that'd be OK if I went in the seventh round to the Seattle Seahawks.'"
Foster is of the belief that his underwhelming reaction to Seattle's call led the team to go in another direction. The Seahawks ended up selecting defensive end Nick Reed and tight end Cameron Morrah, two men who have yet to win an NFL rushing title.
Foster -- who signed with the Texans as an undrafted free agent -- told Eisen he wasn't sure if it was former Seahawks coach Mike Holmgren he spoke with that day. Whoever it was, Foster said they had no reason to be impressed.
"I wouldn't have taken me either," Foster joked. "My attitude wasn't very good."
So, there you have it. Foster's bad mood radically shifted the timeline of the NFL, and by extension, humanity. We might all be extinct by the end of this sentence.
