The Houston Texans and running back Arian Foster reached an agreement Monday on a five-year contract.

Not counting incentive bonuses, Foster’s five-year deal is worth $43.5 million, including $20.75 million guaranteed. Foster, who made $525,000 in 2011, will make $18 million this season.

“I’m very happy for Arian, I’m very happy for us” coach Gary Kubiak said. “This is well deserved. Arian has worked so hard to get to this point. He played at the minimum, and he handled the situation the right way. He’s been very, very productive and I’m glad he was rewarded.”

Foster was the NFL’s leading rusher in 2010 with 1,616 yards and ran for 1,224 yards and 10 touchdowns last season.

He was also Houston’s second-leading receiver last season, with 53 catches for 617 yards and two touchdowns, and he ranked third in yards from scrimmage with 1,841.

In the playoff victory over Cincinnati and the loss at Baltimore, Foster was at his best with 51 carries for 285 yards and three touchdowns. He also caught eight passes for 51 yards.
