Trio Signs: Foster Speaks - Softly

Kevin Lynch, San Francisco Chronicle

The 49ers announced that linebacker Dontarrious Thomas, quarterback J.T. O'Sullivan and running back DeShaun Foster had signed their contracts. Foster was then on a conference call with Bay Area reporters and his answers were short and low key. In fact, Foster had to get closer to the speaker phone so he could be heard. "You don't sound excited at all to be with a new team." colleague John Crumpacker said at one point. "No, I'm kind of quiet, that's me." Foster responded with a short chuckle. DeShaun Foster will let his play do the talking.

Here are the highlights of the interview:
-He did say that he's had a brief conversation with offensive coordinator Mike Martz, and he believes Martz will install a balanced offense. "I don't think it will be pass-happy or anything like that," Foster said.
-He said a couple teams were interested in him, but wouldn't name them. He wanted to remain a starter but apparently the other teams weren't offering a starting job. -When asked what he knew of the 49ers' offense the last few years he said, "I know they ran the ball. That was a big key for me."
-Foster missed only three games in the last three seasons. He said putting on weight and being lucky has kept him healthy.
-Foster said he caught more passes early in his career and is looking forward to doing more of it. "They really use the running backs here, it's kind of exciting," he said.
-Foster said he was more of a Rams fan than a 49ers follower growing up in the Orange County hamlet of Tustin. "I'm more of a Rams fan because they were closer. But I was a 49ers' fan, because you have to go with whoever is winning."
