With DeSean Jackson and Chris Baker both heading south, Redskins fans are probably a bit tired of seeing key players from their team trade in the Burgundy and Gold for the much uglier colors the Buccaneers wear.
They don't need to worry about losing Mason Foster, though. Even after sending out a tweet declaring his love for the area and then receiving plenty of "Well, we'd love to have you back" type answers, Foster later assured those in the DMV he's not going anywhere.
Here's the post from the linebacker, who was a Buc from 2011-2014, that started it all:
After that, a group led by one of Foster's old teammates, Gerald McCoy, flooded his mentions in an attempt to recruit him (ignoring the fact he's under contract with the 'Skins for 2017):

But Foster was quick to deny all advances, giving plenty of reasons for why he'll be happy with remaining in D.C.:

For now, those greedy Bucs will have to be satisfied with landing the Redskins' most explosive offensive player and top defensive lineman.
UPDATE - 4:15 P.M.
It turns out that Baker is making a run at Foster, too:

Foster's answer? A gif that again made it clear he's content with living and working in the nation's capital:
