I remember Foote playing well as the "other " ILB back in the middle of last decade.

I dont remember Foote "stuffing players behind the LOS" for years. 2008 seems to be the first year Tackle for Loss stat was kept in the NFL and Foote had 3 (2 of them were sacks). In the last 5 seasons in the NFL, Larry Foote has had 22 tackles for loss, with 12 of them being sacks.

So over the past 5 seasons, Foote averages 2 tackles per season behind the line of scrimmage.................simply outstanding.
