    So let the young guys compete through mini camp & camp. If one doesn't emerge to start next to Timmons while Spence recovers bring Foote back. If he signs elsewhere...So be it. Remember..Rule 51. If Foote signs he will be counted against the cap through the offseason. I don't think he will sign for vet min. Guys like Rolle, Sylvester, and a draft choice would cost the same combined. Foote can be brought in any time. He doesn't need a camp. He isn't long term...Stop gap at best in 2013. They may find that in someone else.
