Joey Porter and Drew Bledsoe are on the market. Porter may interest me, even as much as I hate that fucker.

I say we sign the prick and send him to the same part of the practice field as Le Charles. Any wasted cap money would be worth it. :lol:

Of course I am joking...if we did sign him he would probably be so friggin mad at that team from toothless town that he would go after Cryin' Ben with a vengeance.

Cowher rumors would probably heat up again if we indeed did sign Porter.

Could it be some kind of cap move? I think the Cowher/Schottenheimer rumors are more exciting than the current team.

It was totally a cap move, and I would not be sad if the Browns signed both. We all know Porter, and the Browns could do worse than Bledsoe when it comes to bringing in a veteran mentor to Frye and/or Anderson.

I'm certainly not saying they have to sign them, but I'm not against it.

I'm all for bringing a veteran QB in, however, I would draw the line with those who blow. They already tried that routine with Dilfer. And, man, Joey Porter did not play well at all this year. I would rather they pass.

Porter interests Browns
Friday, March 02, 2007Mary Kay CabotPlain Dealer Reporter
Steelers linebacker Joey Porter has been one of the Browns' biggest enemies, but could become a close personal friend.

Browns coach Romeo Crennel, before an autograph session at the Greater Cleveland Auto Show Thursday night, said the Browns are interested in Porter, who was released by the Steelers on Thursday in a salary-cap move.

Porter, a ninth-year pro and three-time Pro Bowler, was due to make $4 million in 2007 and a $1 million bonus early this month.

"Well, of course [we're interested]," said Crennel. "Everybody should be interested in Joey, particularly 3-4 [defensive] teams. But along with that, you also have to look at what it's going to cost for some of these guys, and Joey's coming out late [in the free-agent sweepstakes]. He's into it late, so we'll have to see how that plays out and see how he would fit with the team."

Crennel, referring to 2006 top pick Kamerion Wimbley, said, "On that right side, we do have a young player that we like quite a bit on our team right now, but we might be able to put him over there [on the left] or put Joey over there."

In the Steelers' Christmas Eve 2005 rout, Porter had three sacks and two forced fumbles in the 41-0 victory over the Browns.

This season, he was fined $10,000 for calling Kellen Winslow Jr. a derogatory gay term and in 2004 he was ejected before a game for fighting with William Green.

Porter's agents could not be reached for comment. Crennel said the Browns are not ruling out anybody right now, even running back Jamal Lewis, who was released by the Ravens.

"Everybody is on the radar screen," said Crennel. "Even though Reuben [Droughns] is on our team, and he's done a good job for us and we're not looking to replace him. We're looking for competition. We're trying to get the best players and put them on the team."

Crennel said the Browns will act quickly and could have a player or two signed by today. Top two targets are guard Eric Steinbach, who is expected to visit today, and cornerback Nate Clements.

Exactly. Bledsoe is terrible. I would love to have Porter. He has the nastiest that the Browns need.

How the Steelers could cut Porter is beyond me? I read the move is for salary cap reasons but Porter is an elite LB and surely they could have found another way then to cut one of their best defensive players. I would love to have him on the Browns but he is a wang at times so I don't see it happening.
