Foster will likely compete with Will Compton for a starting job at inside linebacker alongside Perry Riley, CSN Mid-Atlantic reports. Foster re-signed with Washington in March, after starting the final six games (including playoffs) of the 2015 season in place of an injured Perry Riley. Although Riley is expected to step back in to his three-down role, Foster could beat out Will Compton for the other starting job. Riley remains the best target in IDP leagues.
Foster re-signed with the Redskins on Wednesday, Anthony Gulizia of The Washington Times reports. Though the details of Foster's deal have yet to be disclosed, Foster will be returning to the Redskins in 2016 after latching on with the club in late September and making an impact down the stretch. He started the final five games of the season in place of the injured Perry Riley, racking up 24 solo tackles in that span. As Brian McNally of CBS Sports reports, Foster's new contract with the Redskins could spell trouble for Riley, who is set to make over $5 million in 2016.
In a somewhat surprising move, the Bears released linebacker Mason Foster as part of their roster cuts Saturday to get down to the NFL-mandated 53 men, per a team release. The Bears signed Foster in the offseason, and he provided a veteran presence in a reserve role after starting 54 games for the Buccaneers. But he was apparently beaten out by fellow backer John Timu.
The Bears have signed linebacker Mason Foster on Tuesday, according to CSN Chicago. Foster, 26, was said to be deciding between the Bears and the Chargers. During his four seasons with the Buccaneers, he posted 343 total tackles, six sacks, 12 passes defensed, three interceptions and two forced fumbles. Two of his three interceptions were returned for touchdowns.
Several injured Buccaneers have been placed on the inactive list for the Sunday game against New Orleans, including linebacker Mason Foster (Achilles). Also hurt and out are running back Robert Herron (hip), wide receiver Solomon Patton (foot) and cornerback Isaiah Frey (ankle). Their healthy scratches are tackle Anthony Collins, running back Mike James and defensive end George Uko.
