Folks always hated on Larry for some reason, but I am glad as hell he was with us all those years. I always saw him as one of our unsung heroes. To this day, I still don't see how Aaron Smith and Foote did not get more recognition for what he did (among the entire league, not among us faithful).

That was a classy exit.

Happy trails, Larry.

Larry was a solid ILB that always played along side more talented ILB's. He was re signed as veteran insurance after his time with Detroit, but unfortunately the Steelers didnt draft an adequate replacement for his aging and declining skills until last year. He got 10 good seasons and 2 rings, so now time to keep collecting an NFL salary as long as one is out there.

I'm happy for him and also happy the Steelers have upgraded the ILB position.

Exactly.
Not every player on a roster can be an All-Pro. Foote was very good for quite a while.

One thing that seems to always get lost, is that Foote taught Timmons a lot. I remember hearing how Foote was tutoring Timmons, and Foote stated that it was his job to train Timmons to take over for him (which Foote admitted would eventually happen, because, as he said: "Timmons is able to do stuff that I physically can't do").

But... Foote was also adamant that he wasn't "giving" his starting spot to anyone; Timmons had to "earn" it.

Foote had everything the other Steelers LBs had except their speed.

Larry Foote is just a class act, period. Wish him the best in Steeler West (cardinals).

Thank you Larry, you upheld the "standard" and joyfully passed your knowledge down to others.

Mr. Foote, I have only one thing to say to you Sir, touché, you are one of a kind! May God bless you throughout your endeavors and sprinkle a little bit of you on the new LB corps, you will be sadly missed!!!
