It’s like deja vu all over again. First the Steelers re-signed former Steelers wide receiver Antwaan Randle El, and now they’ve re-signed former Steelers linebacker Larry Foote. I guess next they’ll sign Jerome Bettis…….or Lynn Swann.
Despite my jokes, this is actually a good move for the Steelers. Foote is a seasoned veteran who is already familiar with the Steelers’ defense. He will add depth at the inside linebacker position (where James Farrior is slowing noticeably).
Foote spent last season with the Detroit Lions after asking the Steelers to release him following the 2008 season.
There was some question as to whether Foote would sign with the Steelers. He had stated publicly that he wanted to sign with the Arizona Cardinals. But sign he did. Foote agreed to a 3-year, $9.3 million contract.
Welcome back, Larry.
Hey, is that Rocky Bleier going into Kevin Colbert’s office?
