49ers CEO Jed York warns Reuben Foster about off-field conduct
The San Francisco 49ers are continuing to stand by linebacker Reuben Foster — at least for now.
Foster is facing domestic violence charges, and team CEO Jed York said Wednesday that the team will move on if they feel his off-field conduct is too much to bear.
“We’d love Reuben to be on this team, and we’d love him to participate for us,” York told NBC Sports Bay Area, via Cam Inman of Bay Area News Group. “But if he’s not doing things off the field that allow us to be able to rely on him – or he’s doing something that we’re not comfortable with off the field and it’s proven that’s what’s going on — I think the guys have said then you’re just going to have to move on.”
The 49ers have been very deliberate in their handling of the Foster situation, and are letting the police investigation play itself out. His status for now appears to be secure, but with a major caveat.
