Default Ed: Foote Says Steelers Talking New Contract With Him

Larry Foote said today that the Steelers and his agent have been talking about a new contract for the 2013 season. Foote, who turns 33 in June, was the Steelers second leading tackler from his inside linebacker position in 2012, starting all 16 games. He also calls the signals for the defense. “Yeah,’’ Foote said on the 93.7 FM Morning Show in Pittsburgh today, “[the Steelers] and my agent have been talking back and forth. I guess it’s a money thing right now.’’ If so, Foote would become the first known unrestricted free agent to be in contract negotiations with the Steelers, who have indicated privately that they would like to have him back. Foote has played 11 seasons in the NFL, 10 of them with the Steelers, who drafted him in the fourth round in 2002 from Michigan. He played one season with the Detroit Lions, in 2010 after asking the Steelers to let him out of his contract. He signed back with them as a free agent in 2011 and returned to the starting lineup last season after they cut longtime starter James Farrior. Footed moved into the starting lineup in 2004 and remained there next to Farrior until his departure in 2010. Foote has said he would play for the Steelers or no one else in 2013. “I m just like a regular free agent,’’ Foote, who could not be reached for additional comment, told The Fan. “I’ll know sometime in March what my future will be.”

Well, this isn't good news.

I can only hope he is veteran backup insurance and Sean Spence will be healthy enough to compete for a starting job. Or, hopefully we still find a starter in the draft. Foote is and should be merely a backup in today's NFL.

Red Flag?

Spence's rehab isn't going all that well?

Foote was our leading tackler and Spence has zero NFL regular season experience. I know we all want to see fresh faces and get younger, myself included, but we need a MLB until Spence is up to full speed and has NFL experience.

Are you people nuts? In my opinion, this is some great news. In a mold to where we are very thin at linebacker as it is and in definite need of a veteran voice, middle linebacker is our thinnest and not only does Foote know our defense inside and out, he's our signal caller and a swiftly maneuverer in our blitzing schemes. We lose Foote and we're worse off as it is on defense. There is NOBODY to replace him. This is going to be one of the better one year extensions this off-season.

I agree. Although many won't like to hear this news. Foote is a safe and smart investment, just not sure how much they will offer him.

I figured Larry would be back. Where else was he going to go? Solid player, good team guy.

Also, as I've found out recently, Foote is a pretty smart and well spoken dude, now that he's in a leadership role and is called upon more frequently in speaking directly to the press. I have no problems with Larry returning for at least one more year.

They should should see how the draft plays out before they decide to do this. I doubt there will be very many teams knocking down the door to get Larry Foote.
