Foote does dour duty in the running game because Timmons is so weak he gets blown out 90% of running plays.
You're gonna have to not post that on an iPhone because I can only figure out about 25% of what that says.

Why did our receivers struggle so much last year? No Hines Ward, thats why. Don't underestimate veteran leadership.

Foote should be back for the right price.

I don't mind Foote bashing since he did leave once already to play for the Lions.

I have no problem about it if he returns as a backup. Hell no if he returns as a starting ILB. He's one of the worst in the league last year.

He never had speed to lose.

You mean he waits for the ball carrier. He is pushed back far too often when trying to tackle.

experience and intelligence
Like the poor angles and misread plays?

So who would you have start. You give all the problems but have no solutions.

Pick up a veteran FA.

If they do sign Foote I am hoping it's a one-year contract for vet minimum. Also, let him come off the bench.

I'm ok with signing Foote as depth only. It's time to inject some youth with more speed and strength than Foote plays with. He's been undersized and slow his whole career. He's a very average lb that has gotten old and has no particularly special talent. He's very replaceable. If you want to use his knowledge of this defense and his leadership, use it to help groom his replacements.

Draft one of the many very talented Linebackers in this draft to play alongside Timmons. That's the best solution, honestly.
