Another example of how this era of smartphones, Twitter, and digital media is just awesome. Twenty years ago free agent running back Arian Foster could be minding his own business in Boston doing whatever he pleased, but today? No way. Sorry, Arian, you can’t even be in Beantown for five minutes before some guy on Twitter with 88 followers is snapping a picture with you at a rental car place in Logan, sending it to the guys on Dennis & Callahan via Twitter, and making you the latest news story across New England.
Clearly, here on some sort of football business (Boston isn’t exactly a premier vacation destination for millionaire athletes), I don’t think Foster would be a good fit for the Patriots. Injury-prone. Hasn’t been effective in over two years. Takes up a roster spot. Has no value on special teams. Will join a log jam of running backs that includes newly signed Donald Brown, Dion Lewis, LeGarrette Blount, James White, and Joey Iosefa. All signs point in the wrong direction.
Also, more importantly, the Red Sox are now 0-1 with Foster in attendance. Not a good sign.
