Big Time Breaking News: Rumor has it that the Steelers are cutting Larry Foote.
Not like we couldn't have seen this coming. I mean with Timmons' performance off the bench last year, it really didn't make a ton of sense to keep him, what with our salary cap situation and all. And in fact, cutting Foote would give us an extra $2.885 million to work with.
But seriously, no one wanted to trade for him? WTF is that about?
And does this have any implications for signing other free agents (Ashley Lelie perhaps), or is this strictly to make sure we're clear when it comes to signing Ziggy Hood? A smarter individual would know the answers to these questions. Or at least a more motivated individual. Too bad I'm neither.
More to come (
like corroboration from an official news source corroboration secured) as the story develops...[UPDATE: Nevermind, there really isn't anything else to say here. The guy was a cap casualty, which is unfortunate. But again, I don't think that surprises anyone.]
Oh yeah, and while I'm posting, the Steelers-Bengals game scheduled for September 27 is getting bumped to 4:15 PM. Apparently Jets fans are more Jewish than Steelers fans. Jews in NY? Who knew?
