One year after leaving the Steelers because he didn’t want to be a backup, Larry Foote is back in black and gold. As a backup.
NFL Network’s Jason La Canfora reports Foote, 30, agreed to a three-year, $9.3 million contract. That includes a $1.8 million signing bonus. The Redskins and Cardinals also showed interest in Foote, but he clearly wasn’t offered starter’s money elsewhere.
Foote will be a reserve at inside linebacker and provide the Steelers flexibility should they ever need to move Lawrence Timmons to the outside because of injury.
