San Francisco 49ers linebacker Reuben Foster pleaded no contest Wednesday to a misdemeanor weapons charge stemming from his February arrest, the Santa Clara County Superior Court confirmed to NFL.com.
Foster was sentenced to two years of probation, 240 hours of community service (he’s already worked eight) and $235 total in fines after his attorney entered the plea on his behalf, The Athletic’s David Lombardi reported. In addition, Foster is barred from owning a gun while on probation.
The 49ers organization is aware of the recent developments in the legal proceedings involving Reuben Foster and that the matter has come to a conclusion, 49ers general manager John Lynch said in a statement.
It was horrible, Hernandez said. The fact that it is somebody who just recently became so close and so dear to me was even worse. From the short time I’ve known Gettleman, he is strong.
He always has a positive attitude. He’s the reason why I’m here, so of course I’m going to be behind him 100 percent and supporting him in anyway I can.

Arizona Cardinals linebacker Markus Golden was worth the total price of his rookie contract the moment the 2015 second-round pick hit double digits in sacks in the second-to-last game of his sophomore NFL season. Ultimately, he and Vic Beasley were the only players in the league with 12-plus sacks and four or more forced fumbles that year.
He’s coming off a season that was derailed early by a torn ACL, but the 25-year-old told the media last month—per Arizona Sports’ Craig Morgan—that he’ll be out there soon. And when that happens, the 26th-highest-paid player on the Cards roster will continue to be a bargain up front.
With all due respect to Grady Jarrett (on a four-year, $2.5 million rookie deal) and Tevin Coleman (four years, $3.2 million), the Atlanta Falcons are getting just a little bit more out of third-year linebacker Deion Jones.
