Foster had a previous domestic violence charge dropped in May after his ex-girlfriend recanted her statements that alleged he caused her bodily harm.

The 24-year-old did serve a two-game suspension at the start of the 2018 season for a marijuana-related charge as well as a gun possession charge stemming from the dropped domestic violence charge.

A first-round pick in 2017, Foster enjoyed an excellent rookie campaign, finishing with 72 tackles in 10 games. However, shoulder and hamstring issues have led to a decline in his performances in a disappointing second season.
