DETROIT -- Pittsburgh Steelers linebacker Larry Foote claims he is the victim of a scheme to defraud him out of more than $400,000.

In a lawsuit Foote's lawyer says was filed Thursday in Wayne County Circuit Court, Foote claims he was duped when he invested money with two defendants associated with a Dearborn Heights valet service. Foote was born in Detroit, went to Michigan and played for the Detroit Lions in 2009.

The suit claims Foote was approached in 2010 by one of the defendants, who indicated he had recently acquired major valet contracts and needed an investor to provide capital.
