Ramon Foster was originally signed by the Steelers as an undrafted rookie free agent in 2009 out of Tennessee. He signed a three-year contract extension in March of 2013. Foster has been a staple of the offensive line since becoming a full-time starter in 2011.
He played in every game of the 2015 season including the San Francisco and Indianapolis games where the line did not allow a single sack and the Oakland game where they offense totaled a season-high 597 yards.
Foster just turned 30 but has been a key piece of the offensive line that has helped the Steelers offense turn into one of the most prolific units in the league. When cleaning out his locker following the 23-16 AFC divisional playoff loss to the Denver Broncos Foster spoke to the PPG’s Sam Werner about whether or not he’d like to come back.
"“I’m not sure what’s going to happen, man. The business part is going to take care of itself. It’ll be interesting. I honestly can’t even say a lot because this will be one interesting offseason right here.” – Ramon Foster"
It’s hard to tell how the Steelers will go here but I’d like to see Foster return. I feel like his contributions to the line can’t easily be replaced and while he’s certainly entitled to test the market and see how much money another team might be willing to offer I hope he sticks around.
