Pittsburgh Steelers Guard Ramon Foster Reportedly Signs RFA Tender

Pittsburgh Steelers' guard Ramon Foster has reportedly signed his restricted free agent tender and will return to the team next season at a salary of $1.26 million. Foster was offered the lowest RFA tender, and because he was an undrafted player, the Steelers would not have received any compensation if Foster chose to sign with another team.

Foster isn't expected to compete for a starting job in 2012, but he's proven to be a very serviceable player capable of starting when injuries pop up. The Steelers have been ravaged by offensive line injuries in recent years, leading the undrafted player from Tennessee to make 26 starts during his NFL career. The Steelers don't have a lot of cap room to work with, and will be happy to have a serviceable lineman back so cheap. Foster will be an unrestricted free agent at the end of the 2012 season.
