    Porter to sign with Dolphins

    WPXI-Channel 11 is reporting this morning that former Steelers linebacker Joey Porter will sign today with the Miami Dolphins.

    Porter will sign a five-year deal for about $24 million, WPXI reports. He will get a signing bonus of about $12 million.

    Good for him.
    I'm sure he'll stay out of trouble in Miami, there's nothing to do in that angelic city.

    I bet Culpepper is happy that there is one less AFC linebacker to worry about sacking him and his bum leg

    FINS CRITICIZED FOR PAYING PORTER
    pft.com

    Though some league insiders are resigned to the fact that the current market for aging linebackers justifies the payment of $20 million in guaranteed money, others are blown away by the decision of the Dolphins to hand that kind of cash to linebacker Joey Porter.

    Said one league source:
    "Anyone who watched Porter on tape this year concluded that he was done, as in 'stick a fork in him' done.
    The Dolphins paid way too much."

    Frankly, we wonder whether it was a football move, or whether it was a "let's put butts in the seats" maneuver, since the loudly colorful (or colorfully loud) Porter brings a barking dog mindset that the Dolphins haven't had lately.
    For the oft-disinterested South Floridians, Joey's fire could ignite the fan base.

    Really, why shed a bunch of veterans in an apparent effort to go young and then replace them by giving too much money to a veteran whose past success might have had more to do with the system in the 'Burgh and less to do with his own personal skills?

    Porter is, in our view, a glorified cheerleader who might still have some gas in the tank.
    But not $20 million of it.

    I disagree...and hope that I am right.
    If anything, I hope that Adalius Thomas is the one that starts to decline!
