What to do with Joey Porter

At this point, I think it’s safe to assume that Joey Porter will not be in a Dolphins uniform next season. He doesn’t want us, and for the most part, we don’t want him.

The past week or so, Porter has caused a major headache for Parcells and co. Bill Parcells already made it clear that he would rather not bring back Porter, but he’s not decided yet on what to do with aging OLB, Jason Taylor. If Porter leaves, it’s safe to say that Taylor comes back, and personally, I think Taylor has a couple of years left in the tank, and is one of the most classy players out there, unlike Joey Porter.

Porter also said he would like to play for a West Coast team, close to home. Some names that came up were the Oakland Raiders, Arizona Cardinals, and San Francisco 49ers. I’ve also heard the Jets, but that seems very unlikely. It seems like Oakland likes to trade early picks for aging guys (Richard Seymour) and  they badly need linebackers. Also, Arizona’s sub-par defense could use a boost from a guy like Porter. Hell, maybe we can somehow get Anquan Boldin in return!

So, it seems like this problem is a simple one. The guy wants out, we want him out, so the solution would be to send him out! If we were to trade him, I would think the best we would get is a 3rd round pick, or so. Maybe if we package in another guy the stock will go up a bit, and we could land a decent receiver or maybe another linebacker.

So, bye bye Joey. Thanks for the 17.5 sacks, and good luck to you.
