The incident occurred when Foster grew impatient as he waited for his NFL “pre-exam,” and a heated exchange ensued, although Foster denied it. “Y’all, stop asking me what happened, for real,” Foster said in a live Instagram video Saturday morning (via al.com). “Nothing happened.” Foster went on to urge people to talk to his Bama teammates about what happened and added: “I’m chilling with my people right now. My agent backs me. I’m staying low. When I get my chance, I’m taking advantage of it. I’m telling you. That’s all I know.”
A league source attributed the argument to a “miscommunication,” and on Sunday, ESPN and the NFL Network reported that Foster had apologized in the letter sent by his agent to all 32 teams and attributed the incident to a misunderstanding. He also invited team representatives to meet with him before Alabama’s pro day Wednesday so that he can go through the interview process he missed.
Foster is recovering from rotator cuff surgery and was not scheduled to participate in drills in Indy. In his video, he said he’d be out of the sling in a week.
“Everything ain’t perfect,” he said. “I’m good. I just have to think. I just had to sit back and relax and think about what I really want.”
