Porter Wants Out

February 2, 2010

Not shy to speak his mind, Miami Dolphins linebacker Joey Porter recently voiced his disappointment with the team and has told multiple media sources that he would like to be traded. This coming after an eight week disconnect between Porter and the coaching staff, which he felt made him an outcast.

On Miami radio 560 WQAM, Porter was asked about potential teams that he would like to join if he indeed is traded. He prefaced his choices by saying that in this stage of his career he would like to play closer to home and be near his family. Then he went on to mention a few enticing west coast teams, to the likes of the San Diego Chargers, Arizona Cardinals and San Francisco 49ers, that he believes could be good suitors for his services.

Nevertheless, Porter claimed that he would not mind playing for any other team that plays a 3-4 defense, even if it means playing away from the west coast. And he also mentioned that returning as a Dolphin is not completely out of the question; he just does not see such a situation happening.

DolFans will have to wait and see what happens in the coming weeks or months as the Dolphins front office will begin focusing on roster adjustments for next season. With speculation that Miami could take a linebacker in the first round of the draft, Porter could very well be on his way out. Then again, many players on the defensive unit have vied for "J Peezy" all season long and enjoy his presence as a motivator in the locker room.

Bill Parcells is not very fond of talkers and when things go awry it could be the last time that the outspoken one opens his mouth in a Dolphin uniform. In the mean time, Porter will continue to address the media's trade questions without ever being at a loss of words.
