Steelers Depot has learned that former Steelers linebacker Larry Foote is flying to Pittsburgh tonight to finish the details of a 3 year contract to return to Pittsburgh after one season with the Detroit Lions. If all goes well, Foote will take a physical and sign the dotted line. The deal is expected to be announced late Monday according to sources. Foote played seven seasons with the Steelers and won two Super Bowl rings, but was released after the 2009 season. Foote led the Lions in tackles in 2009.
Edited: We have learned that Foote is flying out tonight instead of Monday.
