<!-- INLINE HEADSHOT (END) -->Linebacker Larry Foote (http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/players/profile?playerId=3656) has ended his one-year absence from the Pittsburgh Steelers (http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/clubhouse?team=pit), reaching a three-year, $9.3 million agreement with the team, according to a source.
Included in the deal was a $1.8 million signing bonus, the source said. Foote was deciding between the Steelers and the Arizona Cardinals (http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/clubhouse?team=ari), but the lure of returning to the Steelers won out.
Foote will make $3.9 million in the first year of the deal, a source tells ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter.
Foote was a fourth-round pick of the Steelers in 2002 but left in free agency last season to play with the Detroit Lions (http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/clubhouse?team=det). Foote started 80 games over five years for the Steelers from 2004 to 2008.

Not sure why we weren't interested - he'll be solid back in the 34, IMO.

Maybe we were.

But his options were to come to KC or go back to the team where he experienced his greatest success.

Hmmmm....:hmmm:

...as a backup apparently.

they are paying 9 million for a backup LBer and depth. Do any of our starting LBers even make that much?
