I agree bring him in. Sign him for about 3million. Our starting linebacker of Porter, Davis, Williams and Dumervil. Haggan moves inside and Ayers takes Dumervil spot on run downs.

I agree...although I don't want to stunt Ayers growth as a player!

I doubt we bring him in but if we did and still could keep Doom our D would be scary. When is the last time Denver had two players that could rush off the ends and get double digit sacks each?

He said at first they told him he was going to lose time to keep him fresh then they started rotating series. The Dolphins want the younger players to develop so they needed them to get more playing time but it was coming at the cost of Porters playing time. He said he didn't say anything during the season because he didn't want to rock the boat but because it is the off-season he felt that if they didn't want him around to let him go.

Porter would probably be a situational player here as he was in Miami too.

I'm not sure how limited his role was in Miami though and how he is against run support...

Would be perfect fit to add another Veteran with Baily and Dawkins and besides what's a few assault battery charges among friends.

Hours after the Miami Dolphins announced his release, linebacker Joey Porter returned to their roster in the first of many complex salary-cap rules that the league is expected to encounter this offseason.

http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/news/story?id=4909494


AFC East blog


ESPN.com's Tim Graham writes about all things AFC East in his division blog.Blog network: NFL Nation





NFL rules prohibited the Dolphins from releasing Porter at this time when his salary-cap acceleration exceeded the space that the team had, according to an NFL source. Now, after thinking he had his freedom, Porter does not. He is still a Dolphin -- and is likely to remain so until at least next month, when the league's new year starts March 5.


The NFL is expected to go to an uncapped year starting March 5 -- assuming the league and the NFL Players Association cannot extend their collective bargaining agreement before then. But until then, teams must work within the constraints of the salary cap, so Porter's rights reverted back to Miami.


It's likely the Dolphins could release him once the new league year kicks off March 5, but Porter also has a $1 million roster bonus due March 1. It's also possible Miami could try to trade Porter, though teams are typically hesitant about dealing for players they expect to be released.


Porter joined the Dolphins in March 2007, signing a five-year deal for $32 million, with $20 million guaranteed.

The four-time Pro Bowl linebacker campaigned last week to be waived, saying in broadcast interviews he was frustrated about his reduced role in 2009 and doubted his relationship with coach Tony Sparano could be repaired.
As his role diminished, Porter said, he talked with Sparano only on Sundays and stopped speaking with general manager Jeff Ireland and football czar Bill Parcells. Porter said he was the Dolphins' best outside linebacker and unhappy about being replaced by pass-rush specialist Cameron Wake in some situations. He said he wanted to go to a team where he could play every down.
Porter said he saw less playing time after Sparano held him out of a midseason game at Tampa Bay because he "went out to get something to eat" two nights before the game. The defense deteriorated at the end of the season, and Miami failed to make the playoffs, finishing 7-9.
An 11-year pro, Porter led the AFC in 2008 with 17½ sacks. His sack total in 2009 fell to nine, still the Dolphins' high, and he was named to the NFL's All-Decade team for the 2000s in January.
Information from ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter and The Associated Press was used in this report.

Word on the lightrail is that Joey likes getting shot in the ass. Plus he is 3-4 OLB that gas been pretty productive. I hope we at least give him a look.

no thanks, don't need a loud mouth distraction plus this would hurt Ayers development.

Ayers should def start this year if he has a good camp.

I almost forgot how great it is when 10 people start threads everytime a player gets cut or is rumored to get cut saying we should bring him in or not.

He'd break off 2k tackles in our system once they release him for good.

(leaving the Lombardi for someone else to post)

Still a dolphin for the time being. You guys glossed over a post explaining it. In a nutshell:

Adam_Schefter



Dolphins have $4.2 million worth of salary cap space right now. But cutting Joey Porter accelerates $4.8 million worth of money. No can do.
