Ahman Green holds to promise, makes house downpayment

A single mom's dream of home ownership is coming true -- thanks to Ahman Green and the Houston Texans.

Green today made good on a promise to make the down payment on a home for a single parent -- in exchange for reclaiming his No. 30 from teammate Jason Simmons.

Green signed as free agent with the Texans after playing in Green Bay since 2000.

It's all great home news for soon-to-be-homeowner Regina Foster, whose seven-year-old son is autistic.

Foster received a check for 50-thousand dollars -- with Green donating 25-thousand, and Texans owner Bob McNair contributing the rest.

Foster, who works for a mortgage company, was chosen from five finalists who met strict criteria that included a pledge to do 100 hours of community service.

She also must contribute at least 15-hundred dollars toward the down payment.
