Reuben Foster’s NFL career isn’t off to a great start.
After being dismissed due to a non-physical altercation with a hospital worker, today Foster issued an apology to all 32 NFL teams. Foster has also invited all 32 teams to meet with him the day before his Pro Day so that he can explain the incident, which he says resulted from a misunderstanding.
Expected to be taken near the top of the draft, the incident could end up costing Foster millions of dollars.
The negative buzz now surrounding the talented linebacker is reminiscent of what happened to Laremy Tunsil last season.
I love that Reuben Foster is pulling the old Tunsil move creating negative buzz so you can be drafted by the Dolphins.

Foster says he was mistreated by the hospital worker and that the incident was very minor. He wasn’t expected to perform drills at the combine while recovering from injury, but intended to participate in the interviews with NFL scouts.
It will be up to Foster to wow scouts in his interviews prior to his pro-day, assuming they agree and attend the interviews. His talent is obvious on tape available to the scouts, but even the slightest hint of a “character flaw” is known to scare scouts away from promising prospects.
