I still think he's going to be looking for the "pay me for what I did, not what I can do" contract, which the Steelers will not do.

just to clear it up a bit, this is a relatively minor surgery that takes, 15-30 minutes through about a 1/4 inch incision, and takeas about a month to get back to new. ben said he wanted to play 2 weeks after having his meniscus shaved last year which is a similar procedure. joey will be fine. these "operations" are pretty routine.

Porter missed most of training camp and the four exhibition games last summer after needing knee surgery -- a problem aggravated when he jumped in the air to celebrate winning a training camp blocking competition. He returned to play in the Super Bowl champions' 16 regular-season games and four playoff games. He'll be fine.

Porter is not attending voluntary workouts due to his surgery..at this point, thats all there is to it. Sure he wants a new deal and he may make some waves, but if the Steelers dont offer Hines a renegoiation with 2 years left, they wont be giving Joey one either.

Joey will play this year after talking some smack, getting alittle heated, stirring the pot, getting the fans in an uproar...and then decide its in his best interest to come back and play this season and then look for a new deal next offseason. Its normal Joey Porter style, nothing to worry about.

Still uncertain if missing last week's workouts was knee related or contract related.

From Len Pasquarelli
ESPN.com

It is still not known if Porter's absence from the OTA workouts are a result of the pending surgery or an indication that the seven-year veteran wants to have his contract situation addressed. Porter has two more seasons on his current contract and is due a base salary of $3.85 million in 2006 and of $4 million in 2007. There is an additional $1 million roster bonus due in the spring of 2007.

Historically, the Steelers have not extended players' contract until they have just one season remaining.

But once again as with the original article, it's pure speculation and there are still no hard facts that it's over a contract. Until then it's pure speculation on the media's part.

Default Re: Joey Porter Knee Surgery & No show at Voluntary Workouts

lets see:

a) he needs knee surgery
b) he needs a new contract

i pick a) as the reason he missed jogging around with his teammates.
