News: Foote underwent offseason knee surgery, and while he's currently fulfilling a coaching gig for the Cardinals, he may decide to play in 2015, Josh Weinfuss of ESPN.com reports.
Impact: Coach Bruce Arians would like Foote to make a decision prior to training camp. If Foote returns, he could hold down a starting spot at inside linebacker after playing all but one snap in the first 15 games of last year, with a DNP logged in the season finale. He responded with 83 tackles (61 solo), six tackles for loss, two sacks, one interception, and one fumble recovery. The call could be easier to make if Daryl Washington's suspension for a domestic violence-related charge is lengthy.
