Former Alabama linebacker Reuben Foster wanted to explain his side of the story. And as it turns out, it reportedly went well for him.

Per NFL Media’s Ian Rapoport, teams came away impressed with how Foster handled himself in his scheduled meeting with them regarding his dismissal from the NFL Combine over an altercation he had with a hospital employee.

Initially, Foster spoke in a group setting with personnel from 20 NFL teams, then most individually, Rapoport reported.

Foster’s meeting came ahead of Alabama’s pro day workout Wednesday in Tuscaloosa. He will not participate in it because of a shoulder surgery he had last month.

SI.com recently released its first post-Combine mock draft, with Foster falling down to the Kansas City Chiefs at No. 27. NFL.com’s Charley Casserly does not believe Foster will be penalized for his actions and has him being picked at ninth overall by the Cincinnati Bengals.

Foster finished his senior season at Alabama as a unanimous first-team All-America selection. He also was the Butkus Award winner.
