Default Big Surprise, Porter Signs with Cards

Quote:
The Cardinals got their “marquee” free agent.

Linebacker Joey Porter agreed to a three-year contract Friday, after making the Washington Redskins his second visit.

“It is exciting on many levels,” coach Ken Whisenhunt said. “Two areas that come to mind are his productivity on the field, (because) getting 26½ sacks over the last two years is pretty impressive, especially considering last year with not even playing a full season. Also the mentality he brings, it’s something we have made great progress with as a team. Having another veteran player, who has had great success in this league, to contribute to that will only help us in an area defensively where we want to improve.”

Porter had nine sacks last season with Miami before the Dolphins cut him. He is expected to fill the starting spot held by departing free agent Chike Okeafor and gives the Cards a needed pass-rush threat.

I guess when you are a free agent and once played for the steelers you go back to the steelers or sign with the cardinals.
Now Whiz can hear Peezy's trash talk again

Skins passed on giving him a big contract, that's a first, he must be spent - they could of had Dansby for about the same money instead.
3 years $17.5M???? haha

Yeah, I can't understand where all the hate and resentment is coming from. If I was Whiz and took over a new team, I think it would be logical that you would try to acquire players you're very familiar with if you think they are capable of performing. What do people here expect him to do? Avoid all the ex-Steelers out of loyalty to Pittsburgh? How little sense does that make? He's trying to win. If YOU were coaching a team and could deal for Troy or Ben would you NOT take it because of loyalty to the Steelers? Your career as a head coach wouldn't be too long.

Agreed. It's unreal. Just be happy for the guy. Yeah, he held out around the league for more cash, but when you're a top free agent in an uncapped year, you can do that. Apart from him running his mouth to the media about his last team, I have nothing against him. Props all around.

Well, I guess this explains why it's not so shocking they let Foote walk away.

Well, I hope Porter enjoys his time out there, since the Cardinals aren't making the playoffs anymore.
