Last season, Reuben Foster worked out for three NFL teams - the Cleveland Browns, Jacksonville Jaguars and New York Jets. However, he was unable to secure a contract from any of them.

With the offseason in full swing, Foster is once again conducting workouts with NFL teams. According to Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald, the former first-round pick will work out with the Miami Dolphins this Friday.

Foster does have somewhat of a connection with Dolphins head coach Mike McDaniel. They were both in San Francisco for the 2018 season.

Injuries have kept Foster off the field for the past few seasons.

In 2019, Foster suffered a torn ACL in practice. He had to spend the entire 2019 season on Washington's injured reserve list. Since he had a long recovery process, the Alabama product had to miss the 2020 season as well.

A deal isn't imminent at this time for Foster, but perhaps he'll show enough skill in his workout with the Dolphins to warrant an invite to training camp.

Foster, 28, has racked up 101 total tackles, 10 tackles for loss, seven quarterback hits and two pass breakups in his NFL career.
