Ok so we all know that Ken Whisenhunt stands outside the Steelers facility offering jobs to anyone walking out with a pink slip so you've got to expect the Cardinals to at least kick the tires on this guy. It's been rumored that the Pittsburgh Steelers are cutting their starting inside linebacker Larry Foote. So who is Larry Foote?
- A soon to be 29 year old LB who hasn't missed a game since his rookie year in 2002.
- A guy who's averaged 81 tackles and nearly three sacks per season as a starter.
- A guy who had a very manageable contract $13.43 million over five seasons
Bottom line is that Foote's not an elite player by any means but he could be solid veteran presence on this defense and he's got a mountain of experience in the 3-4. He'd provide instant competiion for Gerald Hayes and could serve as an insurance policy in case either Hayes or Dansby gets hurt this year or if Dansby leaves. This guy could be the best former Steeler that Whiz brought in. Thoughts????
