Steelers G Ramon Foster Says A Few Players Aren\’t Looking Forward To London Trip
Pittsburgh Steelers guard Ramon Foster is over in London, England this week promoting the 2013 game at Wembley Stadium against the Minnesota Vikings and he met with the media at the stadium on Tuesday. Below is a video that includes a few of his answers from the session.
Foster says that the stadium is bigger than he thought it would be, and that he looks forward to playing there against the Vikings. He did, however, hint that not all of his teammates are looking forward to playing overseas this season.
“It\’s a welcomed trip,” said Foster. “I think some guys look forward to it. You know you always have some guys that are not willing, or that are dreading it, but I think overall the majority of everyone likes this trip.”
Foster of course didn\’t name any names, but it\’s not overly surprising that a few players aren\’t overly excited about the trip, or more specifically perhaps, the long flight over and a change in routine.
Before returning home, Foster will take part in a Fan Night on Wednesday in Birmingham, England along with the Jared Allen and Kevin Williams of the Vikings, as well as Uche Nwaneri of the Jacksonville Jaguars and Donte Whitner of the San Francisco 49ers.
