NFL Trade Rumors -

Cardinals Could Be An Option For ILB Larry Foote

March 16, 2014 Cardinals, Steelers

 

Mike Garafolo suggests the Arizona Cardinals as a team to watch in regards to veteran ILB Larry Foote.

  • Garafolo points out that the Cardinals showed interest in Foote last year before he ultimately re-signed with the Steelers.
  • According to Garafolo, Foote had obligations to attend to last week, so his market is expected to pick up in the coming days.

Arizona has shown plenty of interest in former Steelers players since they hired Bruce Arians as head coach.

Foote, 33, has said that he has no plans to retire this offseason. He was released by the Steelers a little over a week ago as the team worked to free up some much needed cap space. 

Last year, Foote suffered a torn biceps injury that forced the Steelers to place him on season-ending injured reserve. He was limited to playing just 59 snaps in 2013 and totaled eight tackles on the season.

    NO Thanks..
    Getting old, loosing foote speed (pun intended) and a liability in coverage..
    I am thinking more on the lines of maybe Pat Angerer or Desmond Bishop. Both have had the injury bug bite them but when healthy both are above average ILB’s. Either one could probally be had for the league minimimum and brought in on 1 year prove it deals. Pat would be my choice as he is only 27, and Bruce knows him from his time in Indy..
    He was a 2nd Rd pick out of Iowa. He also has 4.5 speed when healthy and is considered good against the pass. Below is a link to his draft scouting report.
