After joining the Steelers in 2009, Foster ascended to become a starter in 2011, and never looked back.

Despite never making a Pro Bowl or winning an award, Foster was incredibly durable and appeared in 11 playoff games for the team.

Foster responded to the team's announcement on social media:

Now, the team will need to find a new starting guard.
