A report from Howard Balzer of ESPN Radio is that Ramon Foster has signed his RFA Tender. Foster was signed as a restricted free agent and was given the one year $1.26 million offer. That is the lowest offer and if Foster were to sign elsewhere the Steelers would have received nothing in return since he was an undrafted free agent.
