    Yeah, don't love this idea. But, oh well. He was effective.
    Even if Bill Belichick was getting an atomic wedgie, his face would look exactly the same.

    It would be a great pick up.

    If we sign Foote, I can't see us going ILB i.e. Spoon or McClain in Rd. 1. Unless they plan on releasing Farrior and using Fox/Foote to fill in until Spoon/McClain are ready. The only positions of need that they haven't brought in a free agent is CB and DL, so far.

    Agreed...I'm really not sure who they will pick between Odrick and Spoon. But, I fairly confident it will be one of those two if they are on the board and Haden doesn't drop.

    If the signing bonus is small, I'm ok with it. I just think that as Foote ages, he is really going to struggle vs the pass (even on non passing downs).

    However, I was one who stood up and said we will miss Foote and that Timmons struggles vs the run. Maybe I was right! No, that can't be it. My wife has assured me that won't happen again.

    Man I get pumped up when we bring back a former player. I don't care if they contribute or not, just the fact that they're back gets me all riled up. When Chad Brown came back and got a sack I was going nuts at home. Hope this works out, in this case I think Foote can bring some much needed depth to our LBs core. The ability to slide Timmons to the outside and have him or Fox fill in is $.
    ours is not to wonder why just invert and multiply...

    I approve of this message. With this signing we could keep 5 ILB because of Timmons ability to move outside. So if we were to draft a rookie like Spoon or McClain they could sit and play ST this year and learn from Foote and Farrior. IE Troy and his rookie season. We keep OLB that only play ST so why can't that be an ILB this season?
