Default Porter: I've outplayed my contract

A snippet....

"The deal they gave me, I never seen that type of money in my life. Signed it with no questions. Was very happy about it, still happy about it. It changed my life forever. (But) I've outplayed that contract.

If you're talking about the best outside linebackers in the game right now playing, if my name ain't mentioned in the top three, I'm upset about it. Because I definitely know I am. I don't care what three, in what order, everybody's got their own opinion. But you can't tell me I'm not in there.

What I do know, I'm not in the top 10 as far as getting paid, I'm not in the top 20 linebackers getting paid, middle and outside."

How many times has Joey been duped or completely wiffed this season? I'm not sure he's even one of the 3 best DBs on the Steelers roster! Haggans, Foote and Farrior seem more consistent.

Im sure the Steelers can afford to give him a pay increase - if they think he is going to be worth it over the length of that extension.

Im sure Rooney et al are clever enough to realise you don't pay a guy because he overachieved in the past - you pay him for what you think he can produce in the future.

One bad, or below par, season doesnt mean his career is on a permanent nose-dive but I think he needs to produce a little more than a cheerleaders performance on the sideline and making guarantees that count for absolutely nothing.

Joey, quick question. If you underplayed it, would you give money back?

Another reason to wonder if throwing money at Joey Porter is a smart move for this teams future.
