Joey Porter was recently on a radio based in his hometown of Bakersfield, California and flat out said that he was not happy with his role on the team in the 2009 season. He also said that he hopes that he does not have to come back to the Dolphins next season.
This could be for several reasons. Porter was often subbed out on passing downs, was in somewhat of the coaches doghouse mid-way through the season, ended up getting suspended for one game, and all in all, had a terrible year for the Dolphins compared to his 2008 season.
With Porter’s agent set to meet with the Dolphins sometime this week, I can imagine that Porter will be long gone, and most likely will be the deadweight that the Trifecta will be looking to cut this off-season.
Thanks for the great 2008 season, but mosty likely we will be saying the same thing to you as we will to Chad Pennington. “Thanks for the memories, but good luck elsewhere.”
