    Won't happen. As much as I would like to see him bring some nastiness to the D, I don't see it happening

    As a situational pass rusher...he can't be THAT much smaller than Freeney.

    2 inches taller and about 20 lbs lighter...it COULD work...for the right price of course!

    Re: Joey Porter cut by Steelers

    i dont know how i would feel with porter on our team. we already have leber and greenway at OLB, and having one more OLB doesnt seem to fit our bill of needs. For the record i'm not saying greenway and leber cant be outdone by Porter, but his price tag is definately going to be up there with the heaviest. Seriously though, that would seriously help solidify our LB core, and give us some much needed depth there.

    odds are though he's going to bring a hefty price tag, and i'm not sure i would want that with a 9 year LB vet that would bring yet another OLB to the vikes. IMO i'd rather have a MLB unless porter decided to move inside...?

    Because it's customary to say we should sign every person dropped into the mix from every team.

    He is also a fast, hard hitting olb. Putting him in the mix with greenway, leber, and dt will make for a competitive, interesting training camp and will also have us set at depth for that position. Plus the pass rush he brings-SIGN HIS A$$!
    Wait, if there's cat food in this bag............................

    Porter plays off of speed a lot of the time, so putting him in the middle will probably just have him getting blocked many plays. He appears undersized for a mlb, but I don't know for sure, being that I've never seen him play mlb.

    He's listed at 6'3" and 250...no smaller than any of our current LBs (including Napo).

    Re: Joey Porter cut by Steelers

    Porter is a great player.
    3-4 4-3 defenses, who cares?
    He's a leader and he is better than any of our LBers we have now.
    Yes, any of them.
    Plus he would be a great teacher for Greenway.
