  • He played both

    This is my source, he played both DE & DT, his last position was DT though:

    • The wiki article explains it all: Foster played as a DE at Rutgers until his 2005 injury. Since then he was a DT, became an All-American at the position.

      The second link doesn't work, but I know what site you're talking about: they tend to either change the college position of a prospect to fit the pros or they put an alternate position he might play. In this case, it was the former.

      • With EJ suspended for the 1st game....

        ...in all likelihood, Foster will play UT next to AJ manning the NT against the Jags in game 1. Once EJ is back from the suspension, it will be Ed Johnson at UT.

        It was quite a task for Foster to play NT last year at times despite being overpowered, and gave it all, man our D-line depth has changed so much, it is good to see.:)

        • Is it just me or does Ed Johnson look like the best Colts DT hands down?

          Big Cat put on like 20 lbs. to be Fatty Cat but he's just as quick (which now makes me wonder that he doesn't just look like a Thundercat, maybe he is one!). He's just as quick as before, he's giving guards and centers and runningbacks trouble.

          And, we don't know how all of the defense feels, but Freeney at least loves him. Glad to have Big Cat back and hopefully he has a fine professional career.

          • Can he rush the passer as much?

            I see EJ being more effective against the run than the pass with that weight, look at the few rushing yards the Eagles had with EJ & AJ in the middle. But he does get enough push and put him next to AJ, we have the Johnson & Johnson combo that will make the pocket less comfy enabling Freeney & Mathis to say hello to the QB. Sacking the QB from the DT position is always difficult and I don't expect EJ to do any of it, but pushing the pocket often will be a big step from last year.

            • Yeah, I think Ed Johnson penetrates the pocket better than any other DT on the roster. Fili Moala in time, but not now.

              • New roster prediction

                Quarterback (3) - Peyton Manning, Jim Sorgi, Curtis Painter

                Runningback (4) - Joseph Addai, Donald Brown, Mike Hart, Lance Ball

                Wide Receiver (4) - Reggie Wayne, Anthony Gonzalez, Austin Collie, Pierre Garcon

                Tight End (3) - Dallas Clark, Gijon Robinson, Jacob Tamme

                Offensive line (9) - Charlie Johnson, Ryan Lilja, Jeff Saturday, Mike Pollak, Ryan Diem, Daniel Federkeil, Jamey Richard, Tony Ugoh, Kyle DeVan

                Defensive line (10) - Dwight Freeney, Ed Johnson, Antonio Johnson, Robert Mathis, Raheem Brock, Marcus Howard, Curtis Johnson, Fili Moala, Terrance Taylor, Eric Foster

                Linebacker (6) - Clint Session, Gary Brackett, Philip Wheeler, Tyjuan Hagler, Mike Tauiliili, Ramon Humber

                Cornerback (6) - Kelvin Hayden, Marlin Jackson, Tim Jennings, Jerraud Powers, Dante Hughes, TJ Rushing

                Safety (5) - Bob Sanders, Antoine Bethea, Melvin Bulllitt, Matt Giordano, Jamie Silva

                Special Teams (3) - Adam Vinatieri, Pat McAfee, Justin Snow

                Practice Squad (8) - Samuel Giguere, Taj Smith, Brett McDermott, Tom Santi, Jaimie Thomas, Adrian Grady, Jacob Lacey, Travis Key?


                Why ...

                Ball on the roster? Hart is injured, so I think they keep Ball (or Chad Simpson) for the early start of the season. Then they can cut Ball and put him on the practice squad this season if they need him again. Simpson is not PS eligible.

                Santi on the PS? He's eligible so use it I say. Lets him heal up, develop, and get stronger. And a call-up away if Gijon gets injured.

                Hagler on the roster? Experienced and versatile for all three LB spots, plus he's always been a good special teams player.

                Hughes on the roster? I just couldn't cut the chord, Daymeion/Dante is too near to my heart, sniff. But he does have experience, which is something that might be needed early on depending on Hayden/Jackson. Hopefully Dante has a great week 4 preseason game! Lacey has looked good though, maybe the Colts don't think they can stash him on the practice squad.

                • Colts put 3 players on waived-injured list:

                  DE Curtis Johnson
                  DE Rudolph Hardie
                  CB Michael Coe

                  and waived TE Colin Cloherty.

                  I hope CuJo passes waivers.

                    • Cowboys claim Curtis Johnson off waivers.

                      Not surprised at all. Farewell CuJo.

                        And if they'd released Josh Thomas, he wouldn't have gotten one phone call. I don't know why they'd cut Johnson but keep Thomas.

                            I am going out on a limb and including John Mathews on the PS since I think he is still a serviceable project, he at least does not have hands like Aaron Moorehead.

With short bullet passes and long bombs he marches his troops into enemy territory, balancing this aerial assault with a sustained ground attack which punches holes in the forward wall of the enemy’s Defensive Line.

                              In Baseball the object is to go home and be safe.

                                Another 3rd round draft pick gone wrong for BP in Hughes. A corner at that too.
