Larry Foote scheduled to visit Steelers on Monday

As it concerns free agency news, it's been a relatively quiet day thus far. Hopefully we'll have something to report on Larry Johnson soon. For now, all we have is a brief update on linebacker Larry Foote, who Thursday said he'd prefer to be an Arizona Cardinal but didn't rule out the Redskins.

Well, he's finished his visit in Phoenix and is now scheduled to visit with his former team, the Pittsburgh Steelers.

According to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, Foote is scheduled to meet with the Steelers. According to the report, Foote will be in Pittsburgh on Monday, and if he passes a physical, he could agree to a deal.

It seemed like the Steelers might be running third in the race, primarily because Foote would likely be a backup there, whereas the Cardinals and Redskins could offer him the opportunity to start right. You never know what's posturing, what's idle threats and what's real news when it comes to free agency, but you have the feeling that it's still an open race for Foote's services.

In other non-earth-shattering news, center Casey Wiegmann has signed a one-year deal with Kansas City. It's believed Wiegmann was one of the first players to visit with the Redskins since free agency began last Friday, but the two sides failed to reach an agreement. The 36-year-old Wiegmann played under Mike Shanahan in 2008 with Denver.
