First off, Foote has been a good but not great player on our defense for several years now. He was a starter on 2 SB winners. I am sad to see him go, if he is going. That being said, I don't have a problem with Foote leaving. Timmons has immense potential and I think he can make our D even better than it was before.
I do have a problem with us cutting him like this after the draft. I would have preferred to trade him for draft picks. This seems like a stupid waste. Foote, while not a star, could improve most of the defenses in this league. One would think that we could have traded him for some type of draft pick, instead of just cutting him like this. And if not a draft pick, then trade him for an OL who can come in here and compete for a job. Seems a waste of resources to just cut Foote like this. Anybody got some insight here?
