Ovi, I didn't take it as Foote making demands. It read more like there had been some talks, and he wasn't quite sure what was going on. The quote (which I didn't provide before) was "[the Steelers] and my agent have been talking back and forth. I guess it's a money thing right now."

I agree, if he has crazy demands, they should let him test the market. I think Foote has value, but not much more than the vet minimum, if any.
