Being booted from the NFL Combine should signal huge red flags for anyone thinking of drafting Reuben Foster early.
The hospital worker did not take kindly to Foster’s words, and eventually the two were face-to-face, in a heated exchange.
Reuben Foster worked his entire life to get into the NFL. He put in the blood, sweat, and tears. And then on the day of the most important job interview in his life, he got into an altercation with a hospital worker.
There may be nothing to the confrontation, but the old adage, “Where there is smoke, there is fire,” should be considered. If he acted that way on such an important day, imagine how he will act once he’s a millionaire?
He has since apologized, but that doesn’t alleviate him from being the only player chucked from the Combine.
Louis Riddick – former player and Director of Pro Personnel – intimated the medical process of the Combine is often the most arduous. Many have guessed the altercation was a case of “Don’t you know who I am?” Foster may have been irritated, however, with high-level scrutiny directed towards his sketchy injury history.
