Appearing on ESPN’s Jim Rome Show Monday, Dolphins outside linebacker Joey Porter said he wants to be traded.
“I don’t get paid like a rotation guy,” Porter said. “So I’m not ready to take that role. I’m still a starter. I can honestly say I won’t come back to do that. Why keep a guy there that you want to make a role player
Porter, 33 in March, had nine sacks in 2009 and could probably still help a team as a pass rusher in the nickel defense. But he obviously believes he’s more than a situational player.
The trade market will be barren for Porter because of his attitude, so-so production, and relatively hefty contract
. Most likely, he will be released later this month.
