NFL Star Arian Foster Says The NCAA Needs To Pay Its Football Players

This post was originally published by Bleacher Report.

If you put a microphone in front of Houston Texans running back Arian Foster, don’t expect a pedestrian answer. 

The outspoken and forthright Foster opens up about his true feelings toward the NCAA. 

Spoiler alert, he has very strong feelings regarding the NCAA’s treatment of scholar-athletes. Much of his frustration centres on the issue of payment and compensation, believing that athletes should be taken care of in a more equitable fashion. 

Foster finished his remarkable collegiate career in 2008 as Tennessee’s second all-time leading rusher (2,964 yards), and though it’s been four years since he’s stepped on campus, he remains opinionated and passionate about the debate over paying college athletes.
