“Tough, Reliable & Durable”September 14th, 2013
Matt Millen had a lousy record leading the Lions’ front office, but he was one hell of a linebacker in his day, two All-Pro honors and four Super Bowl rings. So Joe thoroughly respects Millen’s assessment of linebacker play.
In this NFL Network video, Millen shines a positive spotlight on Bucs middle linebacker Mason Foster in a film breakdown. It’s some nice national love for Foster, who’s still just 24 years old.
Millen likes Foster’s patience, and calls him tough, reliable and durable.
Foster had two sacks and a forced fumble against the Jets. He got off to a great start last season, as well, and Greg Schiano raved about Foster’s progress this offseason. A consistent season — Foster tailed off in the second half last year — could very well have Foster eating pineapple in February. He has that kind of ability.
