San Francisco 49ers Reuben Foster, the team’s star linebacker, was in court this year against his then girlfriend Elissa Ennis. The charge was felony domestic violence – and not only were that dropped, but it was found that Ennis was trying to extort him for money, by her own admission.
His new girlfriend is named “Cassie” and she posted a story on his Instagram account, captured by this photo.
The real story is coming, but it’s clear from the post on Reuben Foster on Instagram that this story is far more complicated that the so-called police investigation revealed.
How and why Elissa Ennis was allowed to see Reuben Foster at the team hotel remains to be explained. But, clearly, she can’t leave him alone and is bent on ruining his career.
This is one of many reasons why the NFL must start managing how players conduct their off the field lives. Too much money was spent on researching and then hiring players like Foster for that investment and his career and future to be damaged by someone who is up to no good.
The league should have a way to be able to vet who players associate with and date. An NFL dating website and app, much along the lines of E-Harmony. And a contractual understanding that the league provides a set of “preferred associates” both in business and in life for the player, while that person in employed by an NFL team.
It’s only protection for both player and league.
