Default Resign Larry Foote next year!

Let's face it guys, James Farrior is getting long in the tooth, Timmon's is slow in his development. We need someone to come in and play middle linebacker in this Defense next season, and we have a lot of spots that need filling all across the board. Foote's contract with Detroit was only a one year deal, why not bring back Foote, a key player in our defense for 2 superbowls? If the Steelers and Foote could forgive each other for what went wrong between them this off season, I could see him coming back. He's only 29 years old.

Larry asked to be released. He's not coming back.

He wanted more money so he got it for a year in Detroit. He wont be back, not Rooney's style.

Why would you to resign a player who was superb against the run but was taken out on passing plays? We need linebackers who can defend against both the run and the pass.

ILB Micah Johnson 6'2 258 lbs


12/08/09 - 2009 ALL-SEC SECOND TEAM (COACHES): LB - Micah Johnson, Kentucky, has been selected All-Southeastern Conference Second Team for the 2009 college football season as voted on by the SEC Coaches. Johnson, a senior from Ft. Campbell, hit the century mark with 100 tackles, with six games in double figures, despite playing with a sprained knee for much of the season. He also had 6.5 tackles for loss. He was the SEC Defensive Player of the Week in the Wildcat win at Auburn. - Kentucky football

12/01/09 - 12/01 NFL DRAFT SCOUT RISER: Micah Johnson, ILB, Kentucky: Johnson's 16 tackles - 10 solo and two for loss - couldn't carry the Wildcats to victory over the Volunteers, but will carry some weight with NFL scouts. The 6-2, 255-pound linebacker is primarily known for stuffing the run between the tackles, which he did on several occasions on this day. But his agility in coverage, hustling to make plays 15-20 yards downfield, as well as his nose for the ball when shooting a gap or bringing down a receiver behind the line on a bubble screen, make him one of the best pure inside linebackers in this year's senior class. - Chad Reuter, The SportsXchange, NFLDraftScout.com

This dude is a beast...click on the pick to make it bigger.
