Playing in his hometown of Detroit was nice for Larry Foote. Losing games wasn’t. That’s why he was overjoyed to return to the Steelers Monday, even as a backup.
“You can’t really explain it until you go through it,” Foot said about losing constantly. “You talk about dog days. Those were dog days, especially being a competitive person and losing. But I made some good relationships and it was good going home playing there. I’m just glad I’m back and thank God I didn’t sign a longer deal there.”
Money talks in free agency, but we don’t doubt it’s a huge adjustment for some players to go from a successful team to a 2-14 squad.
Foote should really be thankful he hasn’t spent his whole career on teams like the ’09 Lions.
