"Retired" free agent ILB Larry Foote said he's still 50-50 on playing in 2015.
Foote was released from the Cardinals' roster in February so he could take a job on Arizona's coaching staff. He hasn't officially hung up the cleats, yet, and wants to see how his knee feels in a couple months and what happens with suspended ILB Daryl Washington. Foote will turn 35 later this summer.

Date:

Free agent LB Larry Foote recently underwent knee surgery.

Foote had a minor clean-up procedure on his knee. It shouldn't impact his status for training camp if he decides to return. Foote is currently a defensive assistant with the Cardinals, but hasn't ruled out playing this season.
Mar 27 - 7:14 PM

Cardinals released ILB Larry Foote.

It's a procedural move, as Foote has already joined the Cardinals' coaching staff. The 13-year veteran will be a defensive assistant. Foote started 15 games last year and played well in spurts, so we wouldn't completely rule out a return to the playing field. FOX Arizona's Mike Jurecki reports it's a possibility. Jurecki also reports Foote needs his knee scoped. We'd guess Foote coaches.
Feb 19 - 5:59 PM

Coach Bruce Arians announced Larry Foote has accepted an assistant coaching job with the Cardinals.

Foote hasn't officially retired yet, so this could be more of a stopgap move than a full-time position. If the right deal comes along in free agency, Foote could certainly back out of his coaching obligations and return for another season. The Players Association has outlawed player/coaches so eventually Foote will have to decide on his future one way or another.
Feb 19 - 11:22 AM

The Arizona Republic suggests free agent ILB Larry Foote could join the Cardinals' coaching staff if he retires.

Turning 35 in June, Foote's play faded badly over the course of the 2014 season to the point where he was a major liability down the stretch. He is known to be weighing retirement and is tight with Arizona's coaching staff, much of which Foote has spent time with in both Pittsburgh and the desert.
Feb 8 - 8:54 AM

Free agent ILB Larry Foote is considering retirement.

Foote, 34, had 83 tackles and two sacks in 15 starts last year. He graded out as one of the worst inside linebackers in the league per PFF, and would struggle to get anything more than backup-caliber deals on the open market. Foote could join the Cardinals' coaching staff if he decides to retire.
Jan 31 - 4:11 PM

Cardinals LB Larry Foote is expected to take over Daryl Washington's old inside linebacker position.

Kevin Minter is replacing Karlos Dansby. It's a huge downgrade for Arizona's defense, which is also dealing with a significant knee injury to FS/CB Tyrann Mathieu, and will open the season vulnerable in the middle of the field. The 2014 Cards will lean heavily on 34-year-old Foote, 33-year-old DE Darnell Dockett, and 36-year-old OLB John Abraham. A step back for this defense is inevitable.
Sun, Jun 1, 2014 03:28:00 PM

Cardinals signed ILB Larry Foote to a one-year contract.

Foote is 33 and coming off a biceps tear, but can at least provide some depth and play on special teams. The Cardinals need help at inside linebacker with Daryl Washington facing another suspension, Karlos Dansby fleeing to the Browns, and Lorenzo Alexander coming off a Lisfranc injury. A two-down run stopper, Foote will likely end up competing primarily with Kevin Minter for snaps.
Wed, May 7, 2014 08:10:00 AM

The Cardinals are expected to show interest in free agent ILB Larry Foote.

Foote will turn 34 in June and is coming off a biceps tear. He wouldn't be a replacement for Karlos Dansby, but he would be a reasonable special teamer and depth.
Mon, Mar 17, 2014 11:50:00 AM

Free agent ILB Larry Foote has no immediate plans to retire.

The 34-year-old (in June) Foote was released by the Steelers on Wednesday. He'd still like to play for a contender, but it would only be as a backup and special teamer. Foote missed nearly all of the 2013 season due to a torn biceps.
Mon, Mar 10, 2014 11:11:00 AM

Steelers released ILB Larry Foote.

Foote has spent 11 of his 12 seasons with the Steelers and may choose to hang up the cleats at 34 (in June). He appeared in just one game last season before tearing his biceps. Foote started all 16 games in 2012 and recorded a career-high 113 tackles and four sacks. The move clears over $1.1 million.
Wed, Mar 5, 2014 04:22:00 PM

Steelers placed ILB Larry Foote on injured reserve with a torn biceps, ending his season.

It's a tough blow for the 33-year-old linebacker, who was coming off the best statistical season of his career. Now he'll likely be cut loose or forced to renegotiate just one year into his three-year, $5.5 million deal next offseason. The Steelers, meanwhile, are left with sixth-round rookie Vince Williams opposite Lawrence Timmons. A veteran will likely be signed in short order.
Mon, Sep 9, 2013 04:51:00 PM

Steelers ILB Larry Foote is out for the season after tearing his bicep in Sunday's Week 1 loss to Tennessee.

It's a blow to Pittsburgh's run defense, as they may now have to fall back on sixth-round rookie Vince Williams next to Lawrence Timmons. Foote, 34, was re-signed to a three-year, $5.5 million contract in the offseason. The Steelers also lost C Maurkice Pouncey to a year-ending injury in the opener.
Sun, Sep 8, 2013 04:51:00 PM

Steelers re-signed ILB Larry Foote to a three-year, $5.5 million contract.

Foote remains in the Steel City to start opposite Lawrence Timmons. Coming off the best statistical season of his career — 113 tackles, four sacks — Foote was drawing serious interest from the Cardinals. Going on 33, Foote's best football is well behind him, but his return stems the brain drain in the Steelers' linebacker corps after James Harrison was released on Saturday. It's quite possible Foote will end up playing just one year of his "three-year deal."
Tue, Mar 12, 2013 02:21:00 PM

The Steelers have stepped up negotiations with free agent ILB Larry Foote in an effort to keep him away from Arizona.

CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora reported early Tuesday that Arizona had emerged as the "strong favorite" to sign Foote. The Steelers have less cap space to work with, but want Foote back to play adjacent to Lawrence Timmons. The Cards can win a bidding war. There just shouldn't be one for a 33-year-old inside 'backer.
