This is a developing story...
Former 49ers' LB Reuben Foster was claimed by the Washington Redskins, per source.— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) November 27, 2018
Now the question becomes whether or when the league will suspend him.
So the #Redskins assume the rest of Foster's rookie contract through 2020, on which the remaining $1.88 million in guarantees was voided by his suspension. In terms of money, a low-risk move. In terms of everything else ... a lot to unpack there. https://t.co/hOjOZt0I66— Tom Pelissero (@TomPelissero) November 27, 2018
Reuben Foster, who was claimed by the #Redskins (league source confirmed), has 3 years left on his rookie deal.— Adam Caplan (@caplannfl) November 27, 2018

The #Redskins were the only team to put in a waiver claim on Reuben Foster, I’m told.— Tom Pelissero (@TomPelissero) November 27, 2018
#Redskins President Bruce Allen masterminded the decision to claim him, an NFL official with knowledge of the Redskins' deliberations said, adding that the front office was far from unanimous about the idea. https://t.co/3pcuGOhgAv— Kareem Copeland (@kareemcopeland) November 28, 2018
