Houston Texans running back Arian Foster has been holding a media boycott, of sorts, this year. And, even though he stopped to talk on Wednesday, he practically still is on the media boycott.

Foster, known as a thoughtful player through his previous interviews and Twitter feed, hadn't talked at the Texans' facility all spring or summer, CSN Houston said. He took 11 questions on Wednesday and watch how he answered every one:


Yep, he reiterated he's trying to be the best teammate he can be 11 straight times, no matter if the question had anything to do with that or not.

This is apparently mimicking new coach Bill O'Brien's motto to be a great teammate, and it's not the first time Texans players have seemingly parroted O'Brien in media settings. Maybe it's one big inside joke, or a bit of a shot at O'Brien or ... well who knows.

All we really know is that Foster is really, really, really determined to be the best teammate he can be.
