Following the announced charges against San Francisco 49ers linebacker Reuben Foster, safety Jaquiski Tartt offered some support to his teammate and friend.


Foster faces charges of domestic violence with an allegation that he inflicted great bodily injury, forcefully attempting to prevent a victim from reporting a crime, and possession of an assault weapon — all of which are felonies.

"On February 11, the victim flagged down a stranger's car driving on Shannon Road to call 911," read a release issued by the Santa Clara County District Attorney's Office. "She called police. The victim told responding sheriff's deputies and Los Gatos police that Foster dragged her by her hair, physically threw her out of the house, and punched her in the head 8 to 10 times."

The alleged victim was the live-in girlfriend of Foster, who if convicted, will face time in prison.

"Foster, 24, physically attacked the 28-year-old woman during a February argument at their Los Gatos home, leaving her bruised and with a ruptured eardrum," read the release.

Foster remains on the team for now. "We will continue to follow this serious matter," said the 49ers via a statement issued on Thursday. "Reuben is aware that his place in our organization is under great scrutiny and will depend on what is learned through the legal process."

In Tartt's defense, he simply offered prayers to Foster and did not comment on the charges themselves or the incident. Tartt may merely be praying for Foster to get the help that he needs if the allegations are true. Still, the responses from fans via Twitter were critical of Tartt's comment. Below is just a small sampling.

The San Francisco 49ers made him the last overall pick in 2022, thrusting him into the starting role during his rookie season only due to two quarterback injuries. Purdy then led the 49ers to the NFC Championship Game. He followed up with a remarkable sophomore season, setting a single-season franchise record with 4,280 yards and guiding San Francisco to the Super Bowl during his 2023 campaign.

Rapoport: 49ers send clear message to teams inquiring about Brandon Aiyuk

By David Bonilla
Apr 16

Ian Rapoport didn't offer much of an update on the ongoing contract negotiations between the San Francisco 49ers and their standout wide receiver, Brandon Aiyuk. However, the NFL insider emphasized one thing: The team is not entertaining trade discussions at this juncture. Reacting to Aiyuk's decision to unfollow the 49ers on Instagram, Rapoport couldn't help but chuckle at the latest development. This practice has become commonplace among players who are unhappy with their contract situations. Wide receiver Deebo Samuel similarly took this action in 2022 before requesting to be traded just before the draft. Things have yet to escalate that far with Aiyuk, but Rapoport sees his
