    Michael Smith of ESPN reported that the Texans tried to trade for Joey Porter before he was released. Does anybody know what the offer was?

    Smells like a David Carr attempted move.

    i don't know who they were trying to trade but now that he is a free agent shouldn't we be going after him? Now we don't have to give anything up for him. Him with greenwood, demeco would be a great line backing crew, maybe one of the best in the league.

    Where is the actual article that says this! That doesn't make any since that they wouldn't try to bring him in now!

    I have a feeling he'll stay in his division to play the Steelers twice a year.

    He's best off going to a 3-4 team, but I wouldn't of minded at least seeing what would happen if we got him. I would however like to know what we offered.

    I wonder if Porter himself nixed a trade to Houston - something like Plummer (almost) did to Tampa Bay. I get the impression of the Pittsburgh ownership is that they'd be the type who might honor a player's request, even at a slight cost to the franchise.
