i was just over at a Cardinals forum to see what they were talkin about in regards to Boldin, Rolle & Dansby.
I saw a thread titled "Joey wants to be traded" and heres some of the peoples posts about Joey starting with the original post.
I know Joey Porter is old, but we are gonna need a LB with Dansby leaving......yes the Cards will let him walk. Plus with all this Boldin trade talk (him being from Pahokee) and Rolle wantin back in South Florida throw in some draft pics to the Cards and it may work. Does Joey and Wiz have good or bad history?41 tackles this season and 9 sacks
He's an OLB
- you may have an interesting idea...
I orig. thought no way....but...now I sayAs long as they threw in a pick...maybe a 3rd rounder.
I like porter, but at his age he would just be a stop-gap at OLB. I think this draft has a lot of talent at LB...and I think this is our chance to add some young talent to our defense. If We trade Boldin, I would want to add a pick in the first 3 rounds.
What about a deal like this....I dont know if Miami would take it.
We dont gain any picks...but we swap picks in the 2nd and 3rd rounds...moving up about 14 slots in each round. We get a starting OLB and that higher 2nd round pick might put us in the reach of Brandon Spikes, Brandon Graham, Charles Brown, Jermain Gresham, Daryl Washington, Kyle Wilson ect...some of the fringe 1st/2nd round guys. I think most of those guys listed would be gone by #58.
Miami gets a true #1 receiver and doesn't lose any picks. Do you think they would take a deal like that?I would take Joey Porter in a heart beat age aint nothing but a number he is a true leader on there defense, look at what Ray Lewis is doing at his age. He may not be the answer but he's way better than Dansby ever will be enough saidBoldin for Porter and a 4th anyone?Somehow I just don't see Whiz letting a cancer into our locker room. But the fact he's a exSteeler can change everythingHow is he a cancer?Nothing wrong with the trash he talks, he usually backs it up too! I would love for our team to start talking back when the other teams do it to us.
Could you imagine him and dock? haIf he's under contract for 2 more years at that price than I think it's a great deal for us. He would start at OLB for us no doubt. I don't think he would be underused. We could get him...let him play for the 2 years and by the time his contract is up we SHOULD have developed some younger players.
As far as him being a cancer...I don't think its true. Maybe "loudmouth" would be more appropriate, but like someone else said...he usually backs it up. I don't remember any problems Porter had with is own teammates...and I think he could fit in pretty well here.
If we could work out a Boldin deal with Miami that would land us Porter and a pick....or like I suggested earlier...swapping a couple picks with them...I think it would be the best deal we could get. We get a starter at a position of need, improve our draft status, Dont have to use any of our FA money (it would be an almost even salary swap with Boldin) and perhaps most importantly.....send Boldin to an AFC team. I like it!! Lets get it done Graves!
