Fox Sports Southwest:
NFL superstar Arian Foster is finished with Twitter.
In a tweet by the Houston Texans running back, Foster let the world know that their social media access to him is winding down.
"Got about a week left on twitter, then I'm shutter her down," Foster tweeted on Monday.
But, like all great decisions, the sudden end to Foster's Twitter account came in the wee hours of the morning.
"Made a decision at 3am," Foster said.
If Foster's truly finished with Twitter, he's going to have about 375,000 very disappointed followers who have become accustomed to the amusing tweets that have varied from his NFL career to his political thoughts to his spiritual beliefs.
A look through his recent posts does not indicate anything happening that would make Foster want to quite his account, but it looks like the 2010 NFL rushing leader is serious about wrapping up his digital life, at least for now.
And, Foster being Foster, he signed of his Twitter retirement in a very eccentric fashion.
"It's been fun, Twitter," Foster tweeted. "Time for me to leave the digital realm. Be the light you want to see on the earth. Peace."

The off-season is fast approaching. The draft board and the free agent targets are being set for the Houston Texans.

Manti Te’o is about a month and a half from finding out what team will draft him, more importantly, who’s locker room will he frequent on a daily.
NFL locker rooms and professional locker rooms can be notorious for jokes, pranks and rookie hazing. Manti Te’o will most likely absorb a lot of all three of things.
