Reuben Foster’s fifth-year option not picked up by the Redskins
The Washington Redskins will not exercise the fifth-year option on LB Reuben Foster.
Foster was cut by the 49ers mid-way through the 2018 season and claimed by the Redskins. He missed all of 2019 after being placed on the IR with a left leg injury. The former 2017 first-round pick out of Alabama hopes to be fully healed come the start of training camp and looks forward to playing football for the first time since the 2018 campaign. In his two seasons with the 49ers, Foster totaled 101 tackles in 16 games. With Washington not exercising his fifth-year rookie option, Foster will become a free agent after this season.
