MIAMI GARDENS, Fla. — Linebacker Joey Porter, appearing on NFL GameDay Morning on Sunday at Sun Life Stadium, said he has played his final days in a Dolphins uniform and plans to play elsewhere next season.
“Probably as a Dolphin, but not the last time you’ll see me in this stadium,” Porter said when asked about his future in Miami. “I still have a lot of years of football left … but strapping on that jersey, yes, this year is the last time.”
Porter, 32, played in 14 games last season, missing two because of injury. He did, however, finish with nine sacks.
He says he wants no part of the team’s youth movement.
“If it was a situation where the guys were better than me, then you just have to move on,” he said. “But if it’s not a changing of the guard, they just have to sit and wait their turn. Nobody is that good enough behind me to be stepping on my toes.”
