Two days after the 49ers released Foster, the linebacker had a new home with the Redskins, who claimed him on waivers. Officers responding to the scene saw a scratch on the side of Ennis's left collarbone and arrested Foster. Ennis said. "I really wanted to kill him".
The two were so ingrained in each other's lives that they had met each other's families, Ennis said. ". I just couldn't believe somebody picked him up in less than how many hours?"
Ennis accused Foster of assaulting her in the February incident, but those charges were dropped in May when she recanted her allegations.
But Sharpe continued: "What this move tells me is they view what Kaepernick did as a more egregious act than what Foster allegedly has done".
The Redskins say they "discussed" signing quarterback Kaepernick, who has not played since January 2017 after protesting against racial injustice and police brutality by kneeling during the USA national anthem. "I thought that he would change".
"Even when I called the police, the 49ers came up there", Ennis told "Good Morning America" in an interview that aired Thursday morning.
"When he got signed, I was like, I can't believe somebody picked him up", Ennis told GMA. "I did what I had to do for the person I love".
"I've been getting help and stuff like that, and this is not love", Ennis told ABC when asked if she still loves Foster. He then allegedly dragged her down the stairs, punched her in the face and kicked her, Ennis said.
At the time, 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan said the team had a zero-tolerance domestic violence policy, but he was welcomed back to the team after he was cleared of the charges.
At the time, Doug Williams, senior vice president of player personnel, wrote in a statement on Twitter that the team "fully" understood "the severity of the recent allegations" against Foster and that, "if true", the allegations are "nothing" the organization "would ever condone". Ennis said she called the police twice, and once in October the neighbors called police. The 49ers were preparing for a road game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
"Mr. Foster was released by the 49ers and subsequently signed by the Washington Redskins".
The NFL placed Foster on its Commissioner Exempt List, which means he can't practice or attend games, but can be at the team's facility for meetings, workouts and and other permitted non-football activities.
The San Francisco 49ers declined to comment.
Kaepernick has filed a grievance against National Football League team owners he claims conspired not to hire him because of his protests.
