Redskins Place LB Reuben Foster On IR, Sign LB Jon Bostic


The Washington Redskins officially placed LB Reuben Foster on injured reserve after he suffered an ACL tear during practice earlier in the week and signed LB Jon Bostic.

Foster, 25, is a former first-round pick of the 49ers back in 2017. The 49ers waived him last year and he was later claimed off of waivers by the Redskins. 

Foster is in the third year of his four-year, $9.03 million contract and set to make a base salary of $1.28 million for the 2019 season. The contract includes a fifth-year option for the Redskins to pick up in 2020.

In 2018, Foster appeared in six games for the 49ers and recorded 29 tackles and a pass defense.

Bostic, 27, is a former second-round pick of the Bears back in 2013. After two years in Chicago, the Bears dealt him to the Patriots for a sixth-round pick that later became Jordan Lucas.

However, the Patriots elected to trade Bostic to the Lions for a conditional seventh-round pick in 2017. Bostic played out the final year of his four-year, $3.941 million rookie contract before the Colts signed him to a one-year contract. 

From there, Bostic agreed to a two-year contract with the Steelers last year, but was released a few weeks ago.  

In 2018, Bostic appeared in all 16 games for the Steelers and recorded 73 tackles, 2.5 sacks, and three pass defenses.
