King: Foster benching could be a wakeup call

CNN/SI’s Peter King seems to think that the benching Sunday of Arian Foster is just what he needs to get straight for the rest of the season and beyond:

I think this could be Arian Foster’s wakeup call –though I must say I didn’t think he needed one. I had dinner in Houston with Foster 12 days ago, and I found him to be quite responsible and absolutely thrilled he was getting a real chance to be a big-time running back after his checkered past at Tennessee.

Here’s what I mean about responsible: We sat at the restaurant for a good three hours. At the start of the evening, we each ordered a glass of wine. I knew we’d be there for a while, so after we’d ordered the wine, with the waiter still there, I asked Foster if he’d like to just order a bottle because we’d probably be there long enough to drink two glasses. Oh no, he said; he didn’t want to drive after having two glasses of wine.

He was kept out of the lineup Sunday for missing a meeting and being late for another, apparently, and he was chided for it early Sunday morning by one of his Twitter followers. “I’ll try to be better,” he wrote to his fan.
