Default Steelers interested in bringing back Foote

Steelers interested in bringing back Foote



The Steelers are interested in bringing back one of their former players -- inside linebacker Larry Foote -- to improve their depth and create some flexibility at the linebacker position, the Post-Gazette has learned.

However, the Steelers are waiting to see if Foote, who is an unrestricted free agent after playing one season with the Detroit Lions, is willing to return.

Foote, 29, is scheduled to meet today with the Washington Redskins, where former Steelers defensive assistant Lou Spanos is the new linebackers coach; and later this week with the Arizona Cardinals, where he would be reunited with former Steelers offensive coordinator Ken Whisenhunt.

Foote asked to be released by the Steelers after the 2008 Super Bowl season because he didn't want to be a backup to Lawrence Timmons.

But the Steelers are willing to take him back because he would give them some veteran depth on the roster in the event of injury, even at outside linebacker. If LaMarr Woodley or James Harrison were injured, Timmons would move to the outside and Foote could take his old spot alongside James Farrior in the middle.

Just read it on PG. Mixed bagged for me. #1, will he want to? And #2 He would have to play second fiddle and be added as a depth player, something he could have signed for in the beginning. Talk about a mistake the Lions was? Waste of TIME.

I don't see him coming back to the Steelers. Timmons is coming along and he would just ride the bench.

They could bring back Foote and release Farrior. Never know.
Farrior is smart, but much slower today. This is always an option until
the LB they draft gets up to speed in a year or two.

I understand why they'd bring him back but why would he come back to be a backup? He can goto Washington or Arizona. If he came back because they did him a favor last year and he owes then fine. They should go after Kirk Morrison and negotiate with Oakland. Perhaps trade Colon for a 2nd & Kirk Morrison.

There is no way that Farrior will be released. If anything, he'll retire as a Steeler. Yes even though Farrior isn't the same as he used to be and is older, theres no way he's going to be cut.

Foote is a better linebacker than Timmons right now.
