I want to convert linear feet to standard feet, i.e. how many feet is 28,000 linear feet?

OK, I'll say what everyone else is thinking... A linear foot is a...foot. The word linear is defined something like this:

...of, relating to, resembling, or having a graph that is a line and especially a straight line.

linear measure
Function: noun
1 : a measure of length
2 : a system of measures of length

So,linear measurement can best be described as measurement in a straight line, like you'd do with a measuring tape.
To answer your question, 28,000 linear feet is just 28,000 feet.
