Whodathunkit? Joey gone? I wonder the reasons?
After, what six or seven seasons, perhaps he is past his prime?
Or maybe the money was a factor? As I recall, he was talking about his contract last year — two years before the current contract was up.
Or maybe it was a matter of personality. As a citizen of SteelerNation, I sometimes loved Porter’s trash talk and other times cringed when I heard it. Perhaps that style of communication doesn’t fit with a coach who claims Tony Dungy as a ‘life mentor.’
In any case, Porter is on his way somewhere else.
Have a great time, Joey. We’ll always love you in SteelerNation (until you come to town, then we will boo you)!
