Updating a report from earlier on Tuesday, the Pittsburgh Steelers are negotiating with inside linebacker Larry Foote in hopes of re-signing him before the start of free agency later on today, according to Gerry Dulac of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette on Twitter.
Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports reported earlier on Tuesday that the Arizona Cardinals were interested in signing the soon-to-be free agent linebacker, who started all 16 games for the Steelers last season.
Foote said a few weeks ago that he had already discussed returning in 2013, but that a deal was not imminent at that time.
Foote registered 133 total tackles in his first full season at the starting BUCK position inside. He also forced 2 fumbles and recorded 4 sacks.
UPDATE: The Steelers have reached agreement on a multi-year deal with Foote, according to Adam Schefter of ESPN on Twitter.
