After no small amount of tumult, the offseason of San Francisco 49ers linebacker Reuben Foster continues to get brighter and brighter.

Two days after he had felony domestic violence charges against him dismissed, news broke that his misdemeanor marijuana case in Tuscaloosa has been dismissed as well.

Matt Barrows of the Sacramento Bee passed along information on this front Friday, noting that Foster has completed a diversion course to facilitate this course of action.

Now the only thing left hanging over his head at this point is a misdemeanor weapons charge that he’ll deal with in June, which was a reduced charge stemming from the incident in which police were called out by his ex-girlfriend, who falsely accused him of attacking her in February.

Foster could still face league discipline for the events that transpired this offseason. In particular, the marijuana issue and weapons charge could cause the league to issue a suspension.

Furthermore, the 49ers have made it clear to Foster that his roster spot is in not guaranteed going forward, meaning he’ll need to stay on the straight and narrow in the future. General manager John Lynch issued a statement on Wednesday indicating that very thing while also welcoming Foster back to the team.
