Just when you thought things were going too well with Jimmy G and all the positivity, Reuben Foster was arrested for domestic violence, assault, and a weapons charge for allegedly possessing an assault rifle in Los Gatos over the weekend. Right. This makes the pot bust look like a puff of smoke. For a kid who dropped out of the top 5 of the draft board because of character and injury issues, it looks like he didn’t get the memo that this kind of stuff matters. Duh. Looks like the 49ers intend to hold on to their league leading 17 arrests since 2012.
John Lynch is instantly put under the microscope for signing the guy in the first place. He said they did their due diligence regarding Foster and he was assured that Foster wasn’t going to go off half-cocked so to speak, but the thing is, this is the latest of many infractions big and small. Foster failed (diluted) a drug test last year before the combine, he was sent home from the NFL combine after nearly getting into a fight with a guy trying to draw his blood, and of course the pot bust last month in Alabama.
The only good news about this is the 49ers have time before the draft and free agency to make the decision to cut him. As they gather more info, they probably will.
So, that coin flip with the Raiders look VERY important now as the Raiders have their eye on Roquan Smith from Georgia who looks to be the 1st ILB drafted and we are suddenly looking for an inside linebacker. Dumbass.
