Redskins Re-Sign LB Mason Foster To Two-Year Deal Worth Up To $7M


Redskins linebacker Mason Foster indicated via his Twitter account Thursday that he’s re-signed with Washington.

  • Ian Rapoport reports that Foster receives a two-year contract with a base value of $4 million and can be worth $7 million in total.

Unfortunately, Foster’s 2017 season ended with a torn labrum and being placed on injured reserve after five games.

Foster, 28, is a former third-round pick of the Buccaneers back in 2011. He played out his rookie contract in Tampa Bay before signing on with the Redskins 2015.

Foster is currently in the final year of his two-year, $2.5 million contract and made a base salary of $1.22 million last season and was in line to be an unrestricted free agent in the coming months.

In 2017, Foster appeared in five games and recorded 31 tackles, a half sack, an interception, a fumble recovery and a pass defense for the Redskins.
