Latest League Updates for Sunday July 31
Reuben Foster’s journey back to the NFL continues in 2022.
The freelance linebacker has scheduled practice with the Seattle Seahawks Sunday, NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported, according to a source. Rapoport adds that Foster has had several practices with teams as he considers a return to the league.
Foster, a former 49ers first-round pick in 2017, last played a game on Oct. 28, 2018. After a fantastic rookie season cut short by injury, the 28-year-old missed the end of his second season. . after being waived by San Francisco during an investigation into an allegation of domestic violence, for which he was later cleared.
Foster was then claimed by Washington, but a devastating knee injury during the OTAs in 2019 put a quick end to his fresh start. The same injury extended his absence into 2020, when he was placed on injured reserve ahead of the season. Foster tried out for the teams ahead of the 2021 season but remained unsigned throughout.
The Seahawks give Foster a look as the team enters its first season without Bobby Wagner in 10 years. Foster showed great ability as a safe middle tackle, making 101 tackles (10 for a loss) in 16 career games, but a combination of off-field issues and injuries hampered his playing career.
