The former Alabama product played in 10 games a year ago with San Francisco, still finishing second on the team with 59 tackles. He was named the NFL Rookie of the Month in November. Prior to being chosen in the draft, he was dismissed from the NFL Scouting Combine, having gotten into a confrontation with a hospital worker.

Foster played at Alabama, where he was a first-team All-America pick and won the Butkus Award as the nation's top linebacker. He later returned a positive drug test as a result of his diluted sample and plummeted to the bottom of the first round where San Fran scooped him with the 31st pick. No member of the San Francisco defense had more tackles for loss than Foster, who finished the year with seven.
