Despite domestic violence chargers being dropped, Redskins linebacker Reuben Foster's return to the field is still up in the air.
"I think it's important for fans to recognize that because the chargers down in Florida were dropped, it does not mean he is completely cleared by the NFL," Finlay said Friday. "I fully believe that there will be a suspension for Reuben Foster from the league."
Finlay said Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott's six-game suspension during the 2017 season can be used as precedent for the NFL to suspend Foster.
"I would expect something similar for Reuben Foster, if for nothing else that he was arrested twice for domestic violence during one season," Finlay said.
From a football perspective, the charges being dropped is good news for the Redskins, Finlay said.
"Barring a suspension from the NFL," Finlay said. "The Redskins now have a new linebacker for the 2019 and 2020 seasons, and because they claimed him off waivers... they have his contract. They have the rookie deal and he was a first round pick in 2017, which means they get two more years and they have access to a fifth-year rookie option."
"He invited me to come see him in Florida," Ennis said in December. "I came and he took one of my phones and he slapped me and pushed me."
Ennis' lawyer, Adante Pointer, told The Washington Post he was disappointed when authorities in Tampa informed him of their decision to drop the charges.
However, there are still no guarantees Foster plays for the Skins as this may not be the last time he lands himself in trouble.
"Considering all that's happened for him since the combine in 2017," Finlay said, "there are reasons to believe another incident will pop up."
