Tuesday on ESPN’s “Get Up,” co-host Michelle Beadle reacted to San Francisco 49ers general manager John Lynch waiting for the legal system to play out before making a decision on what to do with second-year linebacker Reuben Foster, who is charged with felony domestic violence.
Beadle said the 49ers should go ahead and take a stand against domestic violence by cutting Foster before going to court.
“Why not take a stand?” Beadle asked. “You are the team that since 2012 have had the largest number of arrests in the NFL — which is not something to brag about. And I understand that is not under Lynch’s reign, but it’s still part of that team’s legacy. Take a stand. Cut the kid.”
Beadle went on to say the victim could be paid off or intimidated and not go to court.
“This is the NFL and a team specifically not willing to just take the stand first. Don’t react, be proactive,” she stated.
