Default Porter to sign with Dolphins...12 million BONUS

http://www.pittsburghlive.com/x/trib.../s_496362.html

We will miss you Peezey. The game against Miami should be a great one...hopefully the fans welcome him, and hopefully he doesn't have a game like he did in our 2006 opener.

I still would've preferred the NFC, but eh...

It's better than the Bengals, Browns or Ravens...! Or even the Patriots. -_-

Thanks for the info Infamix!

Peezy got himself a hefty bonus and a new "home". I'm happy for him and wish him all the best!

Congratulations to Porter. Good luck and take care.

On that note, hopefully this story doesn't drag on in the Pittsburgh media much like the weekly updates on Bill Cowher, his wife and his daughters.

so much for all the bogus talk that joey was only out for the money and a hefty payraise. 5 yrs/$24 mil. that averages out to less than he was making as a steeler.


stay tuned: new updates are that joey will be getting more money than whats been reported in pittsburgh (trib-review)

The deal (according to Adam Schefter of NFL Network) is for $32.5 million/5 years with $20million guaranteed.

Those are similar figures to the Adalius Thomas deal - the guaranteed money is exactly the same.

It'll be interesting to see if Joey opens his big mouth in the direction of his AFCE rivals next year.

The Patriots didn't bother with swagger to start this NFL season; they went straight to defiant. Either you're one of them or you're about to get crushed.
