San Francisco 49ers linebacker Reuben Foster has been arrested in MS and charged with second-degree possession of marijuana. FanRag Sports confirmed the arrest by a database search. He was drafted with the 31st pick of the first round of the 2016 NFL Draft.
He was arrested for second-degree marijuana possession in Alabama and is now out of custody after paying a $2,500 bond.
The arrest comes nearly two weeks after Foster wrapped up a rookie season in which he finished second on the 49ers in tackles with 72 in 10 games. His 90.7 overall Pro Football Focus grade ranked fourth among all NFL linebackers past year.
Matt Rhule elects to remain at Baylor
According to ESPN's Adam Rittenberg , Baylor head coach Matt Rhule interviewed for the same position for the Indianapolis Colts . Rhule has previous coaching experience in the National Football League as the New York Giants' offensive line coach back in 2012.
It's unclear what Foster was doing leading up to his arrest, although he did enter the National Football League with some red flags and character concerns. He was sent home from the NFL Scouting Combine after he got into a heated exchange with medical personnel while waiting for his physical. And we don't know much more than the little information that has come out from AL.com or other sources.
Let's hope it's not much.
