The 9ers will look the other way with a hand slap and still play him..... he'll be productive.

The league will stick a nice suspension on him. After they completely screwed the pooch on their handling of Ray Rice, they will over correct from here on out.

"The arrest is the second for Foster in the last month. The 31st overall pick in the 2017 NFL Draft was booked on Jan. 13 in Alabama on a possession of marijuana charge and was later released after posting $2,500 bond.

Foster, widely regarded as a top-10 talent in last spring's NFL draft, slid down draft boards because of character and injury concerns. The linebacker was sent home from the NFL Scouting Combine last March for arguing with a hospital worker."

From the article. Forgot about the incident at the Combine. The League can potentially get him on two counts, violence and the weed.

Foster is a good case study to review what a truly legitimate character concern is versus other players. Compare the concerns of Foster and Manziel vs Rosen and even Mayfield and there's a clear difference.

He was also present at the time of a triple homicide where he knew at least one of the guys involved: http://www.al.com/news/index.ssf/2016/04/auburn_police_say_alabama_line.html. The flags were just off the rails with this guy.

Or, as Bill Parcells says:   It was May Day in Moscow with him.

......"We take matters of this nature seriously and are gathering all pertinent information." :blush:

Ever notice how almost every company, employer, network, PR person, team, whomever all say the same things initally? Must be right out of the "our guy screwed up" playbook, step 1.

Foster maybe the only thing going wrong in 9'ersville but wish the Browns could draft like the Saints last season..with 7 picks,3 starters CB Latimore,RT Ramczyk,FS M.Williams..4 picks direct back-up's(2's) RB Kamara,LB A.Anzalone,L&R DE T.Hendrickson,AQ.Muhammad..your lucky if ya hit on 3 per draft..1st look, thought 9'ers nailed the draft..not now

Great post, and I agree completely.

Well, the 'getting kicked out of the combine thing'  was a huge flag..... let's hope that the diluted piss test for Peppers was simply a case of actually drinking too much water, and not a foreshadowing of what's coming.

I'm not concerned about Peppers as he never gave off vibes of being "trouble" as Foster has. We don't know yet what the future may bring but, at this point, Peppers & Foster appear to be two very different types of individuals. I'm still a Peppers Fan.

Sometimes people do "get it" after they had trouble growing up...but most of the time if they are bad character guys in school they are bad character as adults. Players like Foster can't stay out of trouble in college with roommates, professors, and coaches watching their every move. Then why would you pay them millions of dollars in a big city,  turn them loose on their own, and expect some dramatic character change??? You can't hide whats inside

Kids today are just WORSE, more disrespectful, lack social skills and grace (24/7 internet?), lazier as a group, no work ethic compared to everyone since 1700......anything else?

I wouldn't want to be a cop, teacher, coach or anyone else that has to deal with them.

NOTE: THAT'S NOT ALL KIDS just an increasingly bad group, many like to also just go into schools and see how many other young people they can murder lIke its a video game.......just sayin'.

And I yelled, "Fire!" when I fell into a big vat of chocolate, because no one would come if I yelled "Chocolate!".:D
