Steelers To Release Foote

The Pittsburgh Steelers are expected to release starting linebacker Larry Foote and are expected to try to resign him at a lower contract according to several sources.  Foote is due a $2.885 million salary, and backup Lawrence Timmons was a former first round draft pick, who they want to get the starting nod. Foote, however is expected to be kept on the roster until after the mandatory mini-camps.
