Where is that kind of jack coming from? Age 32 is not over the hill, but we do need better play from our buck linebacker. I'm thinking that he may get a two year offer, but 4-6 mil is a little out of the budget range under the circumstances. If he gets 1.5 mill a yr I'll be surprised. But, what do I know anyway.....

Give him a 2 yr, $6mm deal.
Veteran minimum is about $950,000. If he is retained ("IF"), I would not pay him a cent more than that.

Again, there isn't much cap space... and, Lewis HAS to he the priority.

The Steelers need some more playmakers on defense, and Foote's old position is an opportunity for them to add one.

He's probably gonna be a bust at that.....anyways.

Here's to another year of a Foote in the mouths of all the haters.
Dude, I am a michigan football fan and I know that its time for Larry Foote to be a backup on this team. Not a hater, but a realist.

Watch him in games and not just the stat sheet, then you will see a guy that does not attack the ballcarrier, runs around blockers and takes himself out of the play. He plays like a 11 year veteran, trying to avoid injury and hang on for another 4 more years of paycheck.

Time to let a younger, hungrier, more talented player in that position who wants to make plays and take on blockers, rather than run around them and let them push him out of the way.

Sorry but Larry slow of Foote should be gone or be a backup for vet minimum at best. We need someone who will knock the ball carrier backwards in his tracks and cause fumbles. That is not Foote's thing and he cannot cover a TE to save his soul. This man is just one of the reasons that the Steelers got no TOs last season. Like someone else said earlier, Timmons has to cover both sides of the field to make up for him. He only gets tackles when the front three slow them down for him. He certainly is not the heat seeking missile we need at ILB.

Frankly he's our best option, knows the defense and cheap. If spence or sly (and a dark horse mortty ivy) have a big camp then I think you see foote be the mentor backup role but as of right now he's our best and really only option.

Free agency won't solve the problem cause we are not likely to do anything and there isn't a draft prospect ready for the job (calling the plays and setting people up and such) which foote does.

Consider him a band aid this year, and I would say its a pretty good band aid for the time being.


Edit: http://www.steelersdepot.com/2013/02...th-doom-gloom/
Doesn't seem like spence will even be ready this year.

Allen's gonna take Lewis's job. In a year or two.

I'll take Allen and Foote

And at the other CB spot...???

I'd prefer Lewis & Allen. The CB spot would be SET for the next seven seasons.

Furthermore, drafting CBs is very difficult. It takes teams numerous picks to land one. With Lewis & Allen, the Steelers could "ignore" the CB position, and draft elsewhere.

Either way, they're going to have to draft an ILB... but, your way, they would ALSO need to draft a CB (which, again, can take several drafts to find one who will pan out(.

The Steelers already have two good ones. Sign Lewis... and use those draft picks on finding an ILB.
