Larry Foote Talks About His Return To Pittsburgh

Here's a clip of newly signed Larry Foote on The Drive on 1250 ESPN Radio. Many thanks to the guys there for the candid interview and sending it over. On why he and the team couldn't come to this type of arrangement a year ago: "I was just more focused on my career and just playing and just wanting to be the man, instead of just being appreciative of being in a wonderful place in Pittsburgh, playing for one of the best franchises in the league. I should have concentrated more on being happy than on just trying to be the man. I learned that this season going to Detroit. God is awesome, he made the way so that I could come back home. And once I knew they were serious last year, it was hard for those teams that I was visiting. I'm just glad that we got it done." On whether or not he thinks the Steelers brought him back to be a starter: "It's to create depth, but you can see by the money they gave me that I'm going to play. I'm not going to be a starter, but you know, the football part will take care of itself. Whatever role or whatever package I have...I mean right now, what I went through last year, being able to be back, it ain't about being the man, it's about being happy. And they took care of me financially. I know I can contribute, I know I can still play at a high level. They watched my film, they know what I did in Detroit. They treated me like a free agent, and teams around the league know I can still play at a high level. We just added depth, and that's the Steelers motto - they add depth. That's why they've been good for so many years, because they have players that they can just plug in and we don't miss a beat."
