Probaly dreaming, but I would like to see Steelers go after Jerry Porter from the raiders. I think he is only around 29 or29, and feel his has always been a big play receiver who has been stuck with the raiders.

Thoughts ??

Yuck, Porter is a "me" guy. Didn't he refuse to play for an entire season for the Raiders. I'd rather Moose than Porter any day. Moose has a great work ethic and is a great team player.

Would you want to play for a team that doesn't have qb along with moss. He wasn't seeing a ball while opposite Moss. His QB was Andrew Walters not exactly your franchise QB. He would be an excellent addition to the team. Remember, Hines is getting older and has been injured more often. We need a guy that can come in take some of the heat off of Hines. I am still not sold on Holmes just yet - injury prone due to his size?

Yes he definatley had his problems with the Raiders, but they are messed up out there in Raider land. Not sure I don't take Porters side on that one.
Anyhow, a very polished receiver who has always had good yards per catch and could be a good fit on the right team.cHoping we are that team.

If it was between him and Moose, I would take Porter hands down, and "twice on Sundays"

I think signing Porter would be a great idea. Then we could put him outside and let Hines work the slot like Wes Welker.

I agree...

I think Porter is in the exact same situation as Jerome Bettis. He was made a scapegoat for the teams problems two years ago, and has not recovered from that. He needs a fresh start on a team that cares more about winning then about themselves. He could easily step into the 2 spot, and Ward move down to the slot receiver.

For Ward, I think the Rooney's would have to call him into their office and make a deal with him. If you're willing to work with us over the next few years on contract.... We will treat you just like Jerome Bettis, and you will retire here.

Good call, I'd like to see the same thing happen to Ward as with Jerome, retire a Steeler, it seems not to happen often enough. Especially on the D-side of the ball, and the more guys that hang up the cleats the same time they hang up the Steelers Jersey...the Better !!!

Porter...I'll have to read more about him. I just find guys from Oakland...shady. Personal prejudice for sure.
