Pittsburgh Steelers Re-Sign Larry Foote

With the free agency period less than two hours away, teams are picking up their efforts to re-sign their own free agents in hopes of keeping them off of the open market. The Pittsburgh Steelers are one of those teams that has been busy and they have reached an agreement with starting inside linebacker Larry Foote.

The Arizona Cardinals were ready to make a strong push to land the veteran, but Pittsburgh hurried to get a deal done to prevent that from happening.

At 33-years-old, Foote is on the downside of his career, but he is a valuable asset to the Steelers defense because of the experience and leadership that he brings.
