PFT doesn't like this organisation, but I truly am curious as to what precisely led to his releasing happening now. If it was something they saw during OTAs (ie SDH showing improvement, Bostic and Holcomb looking great), it could've been done several weeks ago...

IMO it's either internal tensions, or a legit cap saving move to solve the TW/BS situations.

Re: So long Mason Foster

Thank god they moved on from him. He was cut by Tampa years ago. When was the last time Tampa fielded a good defense? Yet he was on this roster for years which tells you something about the Redskins. Foster is slow, un athletic and can't run with any NFL TE or RB. All he really could do was call the defenses.

Re: So long Mason Foster

The timing of the release was a fuck you move by the team for last years tweets, thatís my guess.

I like what this says about the ILB crop we have and the general FO approach. More youth, more speed, fewer knuckleheads. The Haskins era is underway.

I do think this is part of the truth, if the rest of it is:

+ the FO is making a legit push to get TW back in camp, then it's a solid move.

If they truly wanted to F with him they could have held on to him until the final cut giving him no chance to catch on as a starter somewhere else.

The timing was this simply about this, they didn't make a move until they had to.

Why is he on his 6th team and he is 28? Also reading up on him he was behind Mason Foster on the depth chart when with the Bears in 2015. On the Fan 106.7 yesterday they were saying Foster was cut because of Bostic.

Good point.

Sheehan actually took this point even further the other day saying they could've/should've waited even longer, until they were 100% sure with what they had at ILB without him.

This makes me think even more that this was a cap move in order to deal with the LT situation (sign Penn and/or find a common ground with TW).

Literally, everybody who covers the team has said those tweets were out of character for Foster. He was universally recognized as a good team mate and good locker room guy.

His game was severely lacking and he should have never been a week 1 starter, but that was the FO's fault more than his.

I really hate he will be remember by most fans for those stupid tweets. I've listened to tons of great, selfless interviews he gave, but his worst moment as a Redskin will be what stands out.

Re: So long Mason Foster

Bostic is a journeyman, he's a slight upgrade from MF. Watch the rookie from NC. He may earn the job and that would give us some serious speed at ILB.

Foster was in over his head. We needed to upgrade. He still has plenty of time to get on with another team. His cap money will help fix Trent Williams money issues.
