Washington Claims Reuben Foster Off Waivers

Nov 27, 2018 10:11 PM

Washington claimed Reuben Foster off waivers three days after he was arrested on a misdemeanor domestic violence charge.

Foster was subsequently placed on the commissioner's exempt list, meaning he cannot practice or attend games but can be at the team facility on "a reasonable basis" for workouts, meetings and other permitted non-football activities.

Washington was the only team to put in a waiver claim for Foster.

Foster was a first round pick in 2017 by the San Francisco 49ers.

According to the arrest report, the woman pressing charges against Foster for Saturday night's incident is Elissa Ennis, with whom Foster has been involved off and on for three years. It wasn't their first domestic incident.

Washington Signs Mark Sanchez

Nov 19, 2018 7:22 PM

Washington has signed Mark Sanchez to be backup quarterback to Colt McCoy following the season ending injury to Alex Smith.

Washington opted for Sanchez from a group that also included E.J. Manuel, Kellen Clemens, Josh Johnson and T.J. Yates.

Jay Gruden said that familiarity was part of the team's decision to go with Sanchez.

"We had a workout today; looked pretty good," Gruden said Monday. "But [it's] based on his past experiences with Coach (Kevin) O'Connell and (Matt) Cavanaugh. He's won some playoff games, he's got a lot of experience. I think this time of the year, you need somebody who's taken some meaningful snaps, [with] a lot of experience, and Mark's done that."

49ers Not Interested In Nick Foles, Colin Kaepernick

Sep 30, 2018 12:17 PM

The San Francisco 49ers are comfortable with starting C.J. Beathard at quarterback and aren't interested in acquiring a high profile quarterback such as Nick Foles or Colin Kaepernick.

Some within the NFL are hoping the 49ers would trade for Foles as they have five prime-time games on their schedule.

Some fans of the 49ers have lobbied the team to sign Kaepernick.

One team source said, they think Beathard will "be productive."

The 49ers lost Jimmy Garoppolo for the season due to a torn ACL.
