— Ferrari Foster 🏎💨 (@ferrarifoster) April 28, 2017
Thursday night, the 49ers traded up to draft Alabama inside linebacker Reuben Foster, who was not at the NFL Draft. He was hosting a private draft party sponsored by VaporFi — a company that makes tobacco and marijuana vaporizers.
I mention this because Foster failed a drug test at the Scouting Combine and for the rest of his career will take frequent, random drug tests in the NFL’s substance-abuse program. If he fails another drug test, he will face suspension.
Foster comes to the 49ers with one strike against him. So, why did he choose a sponsor that is associated with marijuana? Seems like a bad sign.
UPDATE: I just asked Foster why his draft party was sponsored by a company that makes vaporizers for tobacco and marijuana.
“This is a new leaf,” Foster said. “And I’m not answering that. Um, I’m not answering that. I’m sorry. Next question.”
