    "...Porter did express his frustration with this past season with the Dolphins and senses the team is ready to move in a different direction, the source said. But he never said he wanted to leave the Dolphins..."

    he wont sign with the pats and BB wont play LB's that only rush the QB if u can't stop the run or cover you can't play for BB


    he will sign with the jets and have about 6 sacks vs the fish in two games.

    Re: OT: Joey Porter wants out of Miami,says he's done as a Dolphin

    Yes,I read it - He said on the radio he wanted to leave and he also said he didn't another time,I really don't think the Dolphins want a player who is not sure he wants to be on the team,I expect him to be released in this case if he has the same kind of attitude.

    I guarantee you that Parcells won't put up with this sh!t being a distraction all offseason,either he is commited to being in Miami or he is not.

    Re: OT: Joey Porter wants out of Miami,says he's done as a Dolphin

    You do realize that for Porter to come to the team, he would actually have to have the desire to play in New England, right? Given he has already publicly stated that he "hates" this organization it seems pretty unlikely.

    Re: OT: Joey Porter wants out of Miami,says he's done as a Dolphin

    Like the LT discussion, I am not advocating getting Porter, but I still don't get why people are so against getting aging veterans. That is how the Pats won Super Bowls. This team desperately needs some veteran leadership and a change in attitude. You aren't going to get that from a rookie.

    As for Porter specifically, he is the wrong type of player to bring in. He wore out his welcome in Florida because he refused to come out of games eventhough his coach has told him to come out. That is not the type of leadership the Pats need.

    If Jason Taylor was willing to come here for short money, I would be all for it as long as the Pats didn't look at him as a full time starter. But Porter is another story.

    Re: OT: Joey Porter wants out of Miami,says he's done as a Dolphin

    Sure its unlikely - actually VERY unlikely, but with the way BB gives any player a possibility to come here and change his atitude you can't rule anyone out.

    Re: OT: Joey Porter wants out of Miami,says he's done as a Dolphin

    Aging veterans is one thing

    Overrated, over the hill wash ups is another

    Also, if you think veteran leadership or a positive change in attitude would come from Porter than you amaze me

    Looks like Miami might be drafting a passrusher then. Porter is trying to shoot himself out of town with his big fat mouth!

    Re: OT: Joey Porter wants out of Miami,says he's done as a Dolphin

    Ummm... Considering I said that I do not want Porter and that I think he has the wrong attitude, I am not saying that at all.

    I am arguing against the premise that the Pats shouldn't get a veteran LB. I am not arguing the premise that that veteran LB should be Joey Porter.

    Will never happen, Porter hates the Pats more then Jason Taylor. Plus Porter is about washed up and not versatile.

    I think Porter has already shot his way out of town by being himself and not producing like he did in 2008.

    Re: OT: Joey Porter wants out of Miami,says he's done as a Dolphin

    I figured that's what you meant

    It was more of a blanket statement to anybody that thought Porter had something of value to offer this team

    Jason Taylor doesn't hate the Pats. He hates them when he is playing against them, but has said he would like to play for Belichick at some point if the opportunity arises. Well, unless the Dolphins want him back.

    Re: OT: Joey Porter wants out of Miami,says he's done as a Dolphin

    Without Jason Taylor and Joey Porter who are both probably going to be gone there go the veterans on the team....Miami looks like they are losing as much up front as we are and it will be a fight to get the best pass rush draftees in the AFC East,we need to make some swift smart moves in April

    IIRC didn't Bryan Cox have bad things to say about the Pats until he joined them for the SB run in 2001?

    Re: OT: Joey Porter wants out of Miami,says he's done as a Dolphin

    Well, the Dolphins do have other needs just as important like a #1 WR. I think the Dolphins may not have a first round pick come draft time anyway because I think they will make a hard push to get Elvis Dummerville if he is a RFA this offseason.

    I think Shawne Merriman is high on thier list of potential LBs to replace the older vets...I would say he is in their top 10 FAs

    If we wanted a linebacker that was locker room cancer, why not just keep AD?

    Re: OT: Joey Porter wants out of Miami,says he's done as a Dolphin

    I think Porter is actually a motivator to the other players in the locker room unlike an underacheiving and an "I don't care,ask him" guy like Thomas.

    Porter does remind me of a Bryan Cox type player who was a very emotional player for the Phins but I still don't want him even thought of.

    I think Dumervil is higher because of Mike Nolan's experience with him in Denver.

    Re: OT: Joey Porter wants out of Miami,says he's done as a Dolphin

    Why wouldn't the Pats want Dumervil? I know he's not a 6'5 giant like BB prefers, but he's such a demon in that 3-4 OLB spot. That's a guy that if we signed and say we re-signed TBc we'd have a pretty respectable pass rush right there.

    Re: OT: Joey Porter wants out of Miami,says he's done as a Dolphin

    Not really. They won superbowls by picking up players that could contribute.

    They picked up players of all ages, from the youngest player ever drafted (PK Sam) to a guy who has retired a couple times (Junior Seau).

    To say that the Patriots won the superbowl by signing old players is plain wrong, as wrong as it is to say you cannot win the superbowl if you sign an old player.

    The key isn't how old a player is, it is what he can contribute. To suggest signing players because they are old is goofy (who himself is so old he played with a leather helmet in his earliest cartoons).

    Re: OT: Joey Porter wants out of Miami,says he's done as a Dolphin

    i think Dumervil, is higher on every ones list but i can't see denver leting him go. they will let brandon marshell, go befor they let him go


    marriman, is a guy that had a off year and san diegos LT and two best WR's are FA's so they wont bring back marriman if the price is not right.


    the 49ers the fish the jets the cards will all be looking at marriman,
