Marcellus Wiley believes Redskins signing Reuben Foster wasn’t a bad decision
The Washington Redskins recently rolled the dice and claimed former San Francisco 49ers linebacker Reuben Foster off of waivers after he was released by the team. Former NFL star Marcellus Wiley was asked by TMZ reporters about the situation.
Wiley stated,”You gotta allow the guy to have his opportunity. He’s not on the field right now. They claimed him off waivers and they wanted to make sure that, ‘We do the proper investigation and figure out who he is and what happened.”
The former defensive end added,”Let’s just respect the entire process … remember when we had to actually think you were innocent until proven guilty? I’m still in that place.”
Wiley has never been one to shy away from sharing his opinion no matter how many people may disagree with him. Wiley recently left ESPN earlier this year, but his opinions have held a lot of truth over the years.
Foster has a lot of talent and potential on the field, there is no denying that. However, the unfortunate nature of his off field issues continues to get in the way of any hopes of success.
In this particular case, it’s a bit of a touchy subject considering Foster has been charged numerous times for the same offense. Of course, the investigations going forward will show whether Foster is guilty or not.
Although it’s currently not looking too promising for Foster, there isn’t much the Redskins can do now other than wait and see how things play out. They made the move knowing he may never play a single down in Washington.
