Alabama players defend Cade Foster following death threats

Alabama kicker Cade Foster had a game to forget against Auburn on Saturday. Foster missed three field goals in the 34-28 loss to the Tigers.

On the final play of the game, Nick Saban elected to go with freshman kicker Adam Griffith for a 57-yard field goal attempt over Foster. Griffith’s attempt landed short, leading to an improbable 109-yard return by Auburn cornerback Chris Davis.

Following the devastating loss for the Tide, fans sent out death threats to Foster on Twitter.

Linebackers Reggie Ragland and C.J. Mosley defended Foster, calling out the ‘fake’ Alabama fans.

Foster even changed his name on Twitter following the threats.

It’s unfortunate fans react this way – especially considering Foster wanted to make the field goals just as much as the next guy.

    He threw the game. It is as simple as that. He sold out his own team. It wasn’t like the NFL was beating down his door.
