Topic - Mason Foster
When the Tampa Bay Buccaneers released their depth chart for the first preseason game, it confirmed what's been apparent since the opening day of training camp. The NFL's youngest team is counting on rookie Mason Foster to be its starting middle linebacker.
"It's exciting to be out there with the twos (second-teamers), let alone the ones. ... Out there with the ones, you're playing with guys I watched as a little kid," Foster said, referring to cornerback Ronde Barber, who's preparing for his 15th season and at 36 is even older than Morris, who turns 35 in September.
"I've really just come in and competed at the highest level possible, played as hard as I can and stood out to them," Foster said. "I worked as hard as possible to get my head in the playbook, learn everything and try to be the quarterback of the defense. Everybody's helping me out _ all the veterans _ and it's paying off."
