49ers LB Reuben Foster Arrested

49ers linebacker Reuben Foster was arrested on Friday night in Alabama for possession of marijuana, reports Matt Zenitz of AL.com. Foster, who just completed his rookie campaign, was ultimately charged with second-degree possession of marijuana, and his bond was set at $2,500.

Reuben Foster (Vertical)“The San Francisco 49ers organization is aware of the matter involving Reuben Foster,” the 49ers said in a statement (via Zenitz), “and we are currently gathering all relevant facts.”

A first-rounder in last year’s draft, Foster made an instant impact on the 49ers defense. The linebacker ultimately started each of his 10 games, compiling 72 tackles. His performance earned him NFL Defensive Rookie of the Month honors in November.

Foster had a standout collegiate career at the University of Alabama, but he saw his draft stock fall following several incidents at the scouting combine. The defender was sent home early after engaging in an argument with a hospital worker, and his urine sample was diluted (which is interpreted as a positive test). As a result, Foster was entered into the league’s substance-abuse program.

      Not a surprise at all. Combine actions were obvious clue to how he is off field.
      Surprised that second degree charges were filed. No details but it wasn’t a blunt in his possession.

      Yea, team doctors dope these guys up during and after games with Vicodin or Norcos and that’s ok but for some reason weed (which is damn near legal everywhere at least it is here where he plays in CA) is a issue with the league lol I think at some point the league needs to rethink their stance on weed seeing as how it’s legal in many states now.

        Your employer can still prohibit drug use. Im not judging but negative press is one of the downfalls. Im sure he will do it again

        Let these guys get high during the off-season, who cares. Just bad press by being arrested. Maybe if he’s just stay in CA instead of going back home to the backwards ass Bible Belt where weed will never be legalized

        How smart can these guys be to have the privilege to play in the NFL and screw it up regularly. THATS STUPID. Giving some of these athletes 7 figure salaries is like giving a chimpanzee a loaded pistol. It’s a privilege- kick them out of the league if they can’t act the part.

          Maybe you were one of few people to never make a mistake at age 22. He just needs to stay in CA and smoke.

    Marijuana possession shouldn’t be more than a traffic ticket. Alabama and Jeff Sessions suck.
