Foote is the most notable name here, a 12-year veteran who's played in Pittsburgh for all but one season of his career. The writing was on the wall after Foote was placed on injured reserve in early September with a torn biceps. Pittsburgh's leading tackler in 2012, Foote will turn 34 in June. The move saves Pittsburgh just north of $1 million.
Curtis Brown was a third-round pick in the 2011 draft. He never started a game and ended last season on IR with a torn ACL.
