Reuben Foster, who just finished his rookie season with the San Francisco 49ers, was arrested and charged with second degree possession of marijuana, according to the Tuscaloosa County Sheriff's Office arrest database. On Saturday, Corry reported that language in Foster's rookie contract voids the guaranteed salary for the remainder of Foster's deal if he's fined under National Football League drug policies.

The San Francisco 49ers drafted Foster in the first round of the 2017 NFL Draft, and he would go on to play 10 games registering a total of 72 tackles (59 solo). Bail was set a time $2,500, AL.com reported.

A former Butkus Award victor, Foster was drafted in the first round by the San Francisco 49ers.

Foster entered the draft after being sent home early from the NFL's annual scouting combine in Indianapolis after he got into an argument with a hospital worker and had a urine sample show up as diluted.
