Miami — Four-time Pro Bowl running back Arian Foster took a big step Monday in his comeback from a torn Achilles tendon: He found a team.

Foster signed a one-year, $1.5 million deal with the Dolphins, and said he’s healthy.

“I still feel like I’m a Pro Bowl-caliber player, and I intend to show it,” Foster said.

Foster was scheduled to work out this week with the Lions, according to ESPN.

Foster, who spent the past seven years with the Texans and holds the franchise rushing record with 6,472 yards, was injured during a game against the Dolphins last season.

He visited the Dolphins in March and worked out for officials Monday.

Miami was looking to add depth following the loss of Lamar Miller to Houston in free agency. Jay Ajayi is expected to start and Foster likely will compete for a backup role.

Foster, 29, had his most recent Pro Bowl season in 2014. Injuries limited him to 25 games the past three years.

“Adam (Gase, coach) really knows how to use running backs out of the backfield, which I think is my best quality — route-running and catching the ball,” Foster said.

Bills target Reggie Bush

Former Lions running back Reggie Bush has been offered a contract by the Bills, according to NFL.com.

Bush, 31, tore his ACL last year playing for the 49ers against the Rams.

The Bills are seeking another running back behind starter LeSean McCoy.

Last week, team officials announced a four-game suspension for Karlos Williams, and rookie Jonathan Williams was arrested (suspicion of driving while intoxicated), according to NFL.com.

Extra points

Former Eagles coach Marion Campbell, who played on their last NFL championship team in 1960, has died.

He was 87.

Campbell, nicknamed “Swamp Fox,” was defensive coordinator for Dick Vermeil from 1977-82. He was coach from 1983-85.

... Longtime Bears cornerback Charles Tillman is retiring after 13 seasons.
