Report: Cardinals Sign Former Steelers LB Larry Foote

According to several Tuesday evening reports, the Arizona Cardinals have signed former Pittsburgh Steelers linebacker Larry Foote.

Foote, who has started 119 of 172 games during his 12-year career, was released by the Steelers back in March. Last season, Foote only started and played in one game due to a biceps injury suffered in the season opener.

By signing with the Cardinals, Foote will be reunited with head coach Bruce Arians, who was the Steelers offensive coordinator for several seasons.

Foote was originally drafted by the Steelers in the fourth-round of the 2002 NFL Draft out of Michigan. He played one year with the Detroit Lions in 2009, but returned to Pittsburgh the following season. He will turn 34 in June.

    Wonder if they’d scoop up Keisel too, though they do seem pretty set at DL.

  • Timothy Rea

    They’ve got a guy in the Steeler’s Dumpster 24/7. Prevents injuries from their usual diving in.

    Arizona Cardinals are like the Steelers’ version of the Senior Tour in professional golf. When they’re done here, they go to AZ to squeeze out a few more years/paychecks.

    I wish it was Ike also

  • Dewayne Braxton

    He stinks. Lucky anybody picked him up. I am glad the bumb got hurt or we’d still be fooling around with him.

  • Dewayne Braxton

    At least Ike could play in his prime. Foote on the other hand always sucked. Should’ve never been more than a backup.
