Foote: “Thank God I didn’t sign a long-term deal” in Detroit

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.
