49ers GM says Reuben Foster's future hinges on case

49ers John Lynch: 'If Reuben hit this young lady, he won't be part of our organization'

After linebacker Reuben Foster was charged with three felonies resulting from a February arrest related to an alleged domestic violence incident, the 49ers released a statement saying that his spot on the team is under "great scrutiny".

After a brief description of what goes into the 49ers draft process, Lynch addressed the domestic violence charge against linebacker Reuben Foster.

"I think the nature of the charges led us to believe that this was the right thing", Lynch said. "That's the standard we want on our team, that's the standard we're going to operate under". I do have a couple of thoughts. If you know Lynch, Kyle Shanahan and Jed York, you know that's a.

"As those situations arise and, hopefully, there won't be a lot them, we're going to treat each one of them as a unique and different situation", Lynch said past year, per The San Francisco Chronicle. We do feel like patience is the right approach right now. "But I want to be abundantly clear, if these charges are proven true, if Reuben did hit this young lady, he won't be a part of this organization going forward".

The 49ers announced a few days later that Foster would not take part in the offseason program while he deals with the legal matter.

Foster missed six of San Francisco's first eight games during his rookie season because of the injuries. "We take it extremely seriously". "We always have a lot of time together, but this is the time where the coaches have spoken, the scouts have spoken, now he and I speak. But I think as developments change, that may change".

Lynch was asked several times whether his experience with Foster last year - he failed a drug test and was kicked out of the scouting combine after an altercation with a hospital technician - has affected the team's evaluations on this year's draft hopefuls. He also was asked about potential gray area concerning Foster's alleged assault. Lynch said he was unsure if Foster will remain away from the club while the case against him is pending. That is, would the 49ers still release Foster if there was a physical altercation in which he didn't punch his girlfriend? "You would be foolish not to", he said.

"I think that's yet to be determined", Lynch said. "I'm certainly not comfortable with what's transpired in the short time he's been here".

When the San Francisco 49ers are on the clock as the 2018 NFL Draft gets underway this Thursday, they're going to have to finally make some decisions and pull the trigger as they flesh out their roster. "But I think being around this league, I've seen too many cases of guys that struggle early and then fortunately figure it out".
