Former Alabama LB Reuben Foster Receives Workout With the Seahawks
Current NFL free agent and former Alabama linebacker, Reuben Foster received a workout from the Seattle Seahawks Sunday morning. He had previously worked out with the Commanders and 49ers, but no further discussions have been made.
Foster played four years at Alabama, became a three-time SEC Champion, and helped capture the 2015 National Championship against Clemson. In 2017, Foster was drafted 31st overall by the San Francisco 49ers.
Foster played in 10 games during his rookie season, staying healthy and finishing with 72 tackles. The following season Foster appeared in six more games before a knee injury cut his season short.
Foster suffered tears of the ACL, MCL, and LCL joints and because of suspected domestic violence, he would be released by the San Francisco 49ers in November of 2018. Foster was quickly claimed by the Washington Commanders on waivers. However, commissioner Roger Goodell placed Foster on the NFL’s exempt list, which meant he could no longer practice or play with a team until the investigation has concluded.
He has not appeared in a game since 2018, but Foster believes now is the time to make his NFL comeback. The former 2016 unanimous All-American and Butkus Award winner will have to compete for one of Seattle’s last remaining off-ball linebacker positions.
