Default Re: Ed: Foote Says Steelers Talking New Contract With Him

Foote is a step slower and rapidly declining. He's decent, but it's not like he's an All-Pro. The Steelers don't necessarily have to address the ILB with their first pick, but it should be addressed at some point in time in this draft. Spence is coming off of a serious injury and was iffy to begin with. Sylvester is an underachiever and injury prone, and Foote is on the downward side of his career. Not upgrading that position in this offseason would be a huge mistake.
