Well, this is not the greatest start to the offseason for former Alabama star linebacker Reuben Foster.
On Friday, Foster was arrested in Tuscaloosa, Ala., on second-degree marijuana possession, according to The Tuscaloosa News’ Stephanie Taylor:

Few details have emerged from Foster’s arrest, but this is undoubtedly not a good look for the San Francisco 49ers rookie.
A former top recruit, Foster shined as an upperclassman for Nick Saban’s squad and was named first-team All-SEC while also winning the Butkus Award for the nation’s top linebacker in 2016.
A first-round pick by the 49ers, Foster enjoyed an excellent rookie season in the NFL, tallying 59 tackles in the middle of San Francisco’s defense.
