March 6 (UPI) -- His body no longer has to prepare for the tolls of an NFL season, but Arian Foster's mind is still in All-Pro form.
The former four-time Pro Bowl selection and first-time All-Pro retired in October after spending nearly half of the season with the Miami Dolphins. He has pledged to pursue a degree in physics with his recently earned free time.
On Sunday, Foster acknowledged that he can beat up a wolf, if he were to engage in a fight for his life.
"Wanna go camping but "wildlife" scares the [expletive] outta me," Foster tweeted. "I honestly think I can get a wolf 1 on 1 tho."
Foster, who weighs in at 230 pounds, said he has a 50 to 70 pound weight advantage and the edge on having thumbs. He hinted that he could snap a wolf's neck if need be.
His mother, Bernadette Sizemore, jabbed her son on Twitter saying: "I was born and raised in the country and I've raised a complete city kid. Shake my head."

if he bites me his main weapon is immobilized. then becomes vulnerable. this is why thumbs are so important.— Feeno (@ArianFoster) March 5, 2017
i've studied the wolf. he can't read. i know his weaknesses. plus the thumb thing.— Feeno (@ArianFoster) March 5, 2017
thumbs means i can grab him .he can't grab me. all he has is a mouth. grab his neck he can't bite. https://t.co/5s61cihKVb— Feeno (@ArianFoster) March 5, 2017

"If we run into each other in my head "oh yea it's on, wolf". he's jus like "what is this aggressive species threatening me."
"I've studied the wolf," Foster wrote. "He can't read. I know his weaknesses. Plus the thumb thing."
"If he bites me his main weapon is immobilized. then becomes vulnerable. this is why thumbs are so important."
"Y'all will never kill a wolf with this kind of attitude. he's already defeated you off of reputation," Foster said.
Foster's former teammate Duane Brown said he was once scared to pet his silver Labrador.
"Not scared he's bite me," Foster said. "Scared he'd try me and I'd have to kill your dog."
"Also hasn't been to 4 Pro Bowls, overcome those injuries and DOESNT HAVE THUMBS. advg: me," Foster tweeted.
He later pledged to explain his theory on Pat McAfee's podcast.
"I don't want any trouble," Foster responded when asked what wolves did to deserve his fight. "Just sayin in the event that there's a one on one. I'm winning."
He said he'd have no chance against a tiger. The 30-year-old had a stint as one of the best running backs in the NFL during his eight-year career in the league. He averaged 1,894 yards from scrimmage and 15.6 touchdowns from 2010 through 2012.
Foster won a poll on Yahoo about his ability to take on the beast.
