Reuben Foster met with teams to explain early combine exit

Projected first-round pick Reuben Foster exited the 2017 NFL Scouting Combine early due his involvement in an incident that occurred while awaiting his medical examination. On Tuesday, Foster met with 20 team personnel to explain the incident and apologize, according to NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport.

As NFL Network's Kimberly Jones explained last week, Foster grew tired of a wait at the hospital during his medical examination on Friday, and got into a heated argument with a hospital worker before being asked to leave. In a letter his agent sent to all 32 NFL clubs, Foster said he understands combine participation is a "privilege and an honor," and invited them to speak with him in the linebacker meeting room in the Alabama football building on March 7.

Per Rapoport, Foster's apology was well received and teams left impressed.

Alabama's pro day is set for Wednesday, although Foster was not going to work out at the combine due to shoulder surgery, and presumably won't work out at the pro day, either.
