LB Foote to visit Redskins and Cardinals next week

Free agent linebacker Larry Foote says he has visits scheduled

next week with the Washington Redskins and Arizona Cardinals.

Foote told The Associated Press on Friday night both teams are

good fits for him, playing 3-4 defenses with coaches he is familiar

with from the Pittsburgh Steelers. Foote says he will meet Monday

with the Redskins and Wednesday with the Cardinals.

He led the Detroit Lions with 99 tackles last year despite

missing two games with a foot injury.

The native of Detroit and former Michigan star signed a one-year

deal with the Lions last year and had 70 solo tackles, his highest

total since 2005.

Foote started every game for the Steelers from 2004-2008,

helping them win two Super Bowls after they drafted him in

2002.
