Former Alabama inside linebacker Reuben Foster, viewed by most experts to be a top-10 pick in the upcoming NFL draft, was sent home from the combine.
Foster had been waiting for an extended period for what the NFL calls his “pre-exam”, when he grew increasingly impatient and began questioning a hospital worker.
The hospital worker did not take kindly to Foster’s words and eventually the two were face to face, in a heated exchange.
The hospital worker did not take kindly to Foster’s words? Whatever said hospital worker’s duties are, I’m fairly confident they don’t include getting face to face with a patient.
I don’t know why players, especially those who are highly rated, even go to the NFL combine. Reuben Foster played four years at Alabama. He was a unanimous All-American last year and was awarded the Butkus Award as the top college linebacker in the country. No team in the NFL, even the ones run by incompetent morons, need to see Reuben Foster at the combine to learn any more information about him that they don’t already have.
If your team needs an inside linebacker and you’re burning calories trying to decide if you should draft Reuben Foster, you’re doing it wrong.
