According to reports, the Washington Redskins are releasing starting linebacker Mason Foster.  The veteran started in all 16 games last season and recorded 131 tackles.

Foster added a sack, a couple of interceptions and fumble recoveries to his impressive tackles total.  For that reason the news is a little surprising.

On the flip side, Foster should have very little trouble finding a new home, unless of course he was released due to some sort of unreported off the field problem.
