All he got was a 2 game suspension. I tell you the league is really giving themselves a black eye with this and the Winston scenario on top of all the other issues.

NFL suspends Reuben Foster two games for gun, marijuana offenses

The NFL has suspended 49ers linebacker Reuben Foster two games for his recent arrests on gun and marijuana charges.

The league announced the suspension today and said that the suspension falls under both the league’s personal conduct policy and substance abuse policy. Foster will participate in training camp and the preseason but miss the first two games of the regular season. He will return to the team on Monday, September 17.

“I accept the League’s decision and am sorry that my mistakes have hurt my team,” Foster said in a statement. “I have a responsibility to the 49ers, our fans and our community, and I am committed to learning from this situation and making better choices in the future. The support I have received over the last five months has been humbling, and I do not take it for granted.”

The 49ers initially banished Foster from offseason work when he was accused of domestic violence, but he was welcomed back to the team after his accuser testified under oath that she had lied.

“Our organization understands and supports the League’s decision,” General Manager John Lynch said. “Although we are disappointed that Reuben will not be with our team for the first two games of the season, we will continue to work with him on making better decisions and eliminating unnecessary distractions. We are encouraged to see Reuben take responsibility for his mistakes, and hopeful that he has learned from them as well.”

A first-round draft pick last year, Foster started 10 games as a rookie.

He won't always be able to pay off people like he did with his girlfriend. Next we'll hear about him he'll probably spend a few choice years in jail honestly. So glad it's not our headache.

The only headaches we have with our guys is who starts over who but that's always a good problem to have. We have high character,team first guys not head cases like Foster.

Well, I know Brod went into great detail with concerns about how he played and his injury history. Low and behold broseph got himself a concussion this week. Another chance for us to thank the stars we missed out on this guy.

No person knows for sure outside of the front office, but imagine what we might have drafted.  Mahomes and Foster.  Instead we drafted Lattimore and Ram.

Just another day in 49ers football.

im glad we didn’t pick him, but it would have taken a team with the culture and personnel that we have to have a chance at turning this kid around for the better. The 49ers culture is the last place he should have gone and as soon as they drafted him it was a ticking time bomb.
