    Ramon Foster Signs One Year Deal

    Here is the link.

    http://www.pittsburghlive.com/x/pitt...orts/steelers/

    Guard Ramon Foster signed his restricted free-agent tender that ensures that he will return to the Steelers for another year.

    Foster will earn $1.26 million and will become an unresticted free agent next year unless he signs a long-term deal with the Steelers in the interim.

    The undrafted free agent out of Tennessee was offered a low tender last month meaning that the Steelers would not have received any compensation if Foster signed with another team.
    Foster did have interest from other organizations, but decided to sign with the Steelers. The Steelers would’ve matched any offer Foster received.

    Foster did not have to sign the tender until April 20.

    He signed his tender. 1.26 million or something like that for 1 year. One down, 5 more to go, including the big one.

    I've liked Foster all a long, I'm glad he's coming back. Nobody really thought he'd get that much attention in free agency even if he was part of a super bowl appearing offensive line. I think he's getting better each year and if they can keep the line intact around him he might just be something special. That goes for all the guys though, staying healthy.

    His stats don't jump off the page at you but he is a solid guard improving every year so far great to see him back.The fact that he didn't wait till the 20th means he wants to be a Steeler so good for us

    Obviously the Steelers really needed Foster back since they don't have any quality depth at the Guard position. I think the Steelers have to draft at least 2 Olineman, hopefully a Tackle and Guard.

    I like the price tag on this move as well, extremely reasonable getting a starting guard for less than 2 million per year. I see now reason why he won't start again this season unless they take more than 1 Guard and make it an all out competition; even then his chances are very good.

    Good, they need all hands on deck with that o-line.
