Does this mean the 3-4 will go on longer? Or does it mean that Smith could move to tackle i the 4-3? Or do they think he can play end in the 4-3?

I'm sad for you but I think Joey will be gone.

I really feel bad too but I've anticipated this for a long time.

Its part of the reason I purchased a Joey Porter pro bowl jersey rather than a steelers jersey.

It would be a big mistake on our part to let Porter go.

Porter isn't worth the money he is being paid and I doubt he is the kind of guy that would be willing to take a pay cut. I don't know if I'd cut him but I know I wouldn't resign him or even negotiate if he heldout.

That was the reason he was cut, they knew he was going to hold out, why pay him an extra 1million to not show up for camp.

PFT says they were negotiating with every 2008 FA OTHER THAN Porter. Shows they really had their minds made up that he was gone.

I think it was mutual though. If Porter really wanted to play for Pittsburgh and wasn't $$$ crazy he would've found a way to get in touch.
