Foote calls time with Lions 'the dog days'
ALLEN PARK — LB Larry Foote, who is returning to the Steelers after signing a three-year deal on Monday, had a few things to say about his one season with his hometown Detroit Lions.
Foote told Steelers.com that it was something that is hard to explain until you live through it. Foote went from winning a Super Bowl to joining the Lions who were coming off a 0-16 season.
“You talk about dog days. Those were dog days, especially being a competitive person and losing. I made some nice relationships over there, and it was good going home and playing there, but I just thank God I’m back and didn’t sign a long-term deal (there),’’ Foote said.
