    Anyone else interested in picking up Porter for our LB crew? I'd love to have him.

    We desperately need a guy like Porter on our defense. He has an attitude and guys are afraid of him on the football field. Oh, he's a pretty good football player too. haha.

    I love Porter's play and his energy, we must inquire.

    what has his salary been? i know he's a tough dude and all but i really havn't followed him much. he's been in the league what 8 years? Is he getting old and beat up, or is he still fluid and able to play at full potential?

    If he's good and healthy that'd be awesome...is he an olb or mlb?

    Don't the Steelers run a 3-4? Ah, who cares! I'd at least be picking up the phone. It never hurts to try.:shades:

    Porter was scheduled to make $5.225 million this season from a base standpoint I believe. Which would seem in line as this caliber of player would have an escalating base per year.

    I'd love to have him in a Texans uni, but I've got a feeling it's a snowball's chance in hell for it to happen.

    I think Porter is a heck of a 3-4 OLB...

    I don't think he will be as good in a 4-3 though...JMO

    Houston, again.
    Sounds like a law firm. LOL They would be laying the law down on defense. Actually not sure I am in favor of Porter. Isn't he a bit of a loose cannon?

    Is he ? I've never heard anything like that....


    But I'd love for him to end up with the Patriots....They need linebackers, and they run a 3-4....

    So what he likes to talk, hes not getting into shootings at strip clubs. This team needs some players with fire.
