Mason Foster Released, with looking at LBers yesterday an interesting name

Recommended Posts

 

For Depth as Mike I would take him in a heartbeat.

I would like this addition.  Good depth.  I'm impressed with the depth we are amassing all-around.  Last year we lacked starters at key positions (OL, WR, TE) and depth at others (secondary, LB).  We are fixing those problems this year!

Agree and Now I can look at these pre-camp releases to fix and address depth instead of still trying to find starters.  Foster at age 30 would be tremendous as a Back Up to Edmunds and to help him Continue to Grow.  I think this one would be a no brainer.  Normally not a XXXX Released Go Sign him Bills, but this one just screams smart to me.

He'll be a Baltimore Raven in a New York minute.

We have zero LB depth ,and one of them are bound to get nicked up. I'd love to have foster, and he'd be cheap.

Mason Foster walks in and is IMMEDIATE upgrade to the MIKE Depth.  And not to mention after being in the league for 9 years now, will provide the experience to grow Edmunds.  Think of him as Barkley to Allen.  Foster to Edmunds.

Like I said....definately always open to improving especially the back end of the roster and McD and Beane do a lot of tinkering with this.....

 

I am thinking more of the type of LB.....(I dont know a lot about Foster) Julian Stanford fits that athletic cover LB that it looks like the D wants to employ in the middle of the field.....

Foster is a sideline to sideline LBer and good (not great) in coverage.  Also can play MIKE and SAM.  So is he better than Stanford (I say yes but can be debated) or even better than Deon Lacy (absolutely is)

Julian Stanford has been in the league for 6 years and has 0 INTs, 0 Sacks and 1 Passes Defended.

Foster did better his rookie year.

If Foster would be willing take on a backup/mentor role with the Bills and play some STs like he has in the past he would be an upgrade IMO.

After the starters the Bills have no real game experience at LB.

LB depth is the weakness of the defense.  If he is willing to backup Edmunds, he should be pursued. 

 

Can he play outside?  If so, even better.

Is he healthy?  Why did he get cut?  Can't all be roses if a capable player is dropped right before camp

This stuff happens every year for any number of reasons. Maybe he is not in their system plans. Bring him in...a change of scenery may rejuvenate him!

Makes me curious. If there’s something else floating around (DUI, etc) it’ll surface in the next 48 hours or so. The timing is a little unusual with the R Foster injury, but there are plenty of reasons for a release... anything from a coaching disagreement to a promising rookie.

They saved like 4 million on the cap- they likely need it for a new deal with their LT

If anyone cares.  

 

I heard on the radio that They cut him as he was driving down to report to camp.

He's a guy I like too, but don't sell someone like Vosean Joseph short, he just might be the steal of the draft

It's also possible the Redskins were just tired of dealing with Foster. Back in December, the linebacker said "F--- this team and fan base," referring to the Redskins and their fans. He also famously lashed out at the team's front office back in 2017.
