Well, Joey Porter now does have another visit — to Washington, a couple of days from now. Guess I spoke too soon. The Redskins are switching to a 3-4 look, apparently, so that helps. But you can’t get much further away from California (Porter’s home state, where he said he wanted to be near). Then again, as a wiser man than me has pointed out more than once, these guys can live wherever they want when their playing days are over. If he can get a few more millions in the East …
Then again, the Redskins also looked at Larry Foote, and we all know how that turned out. Foote didn’t land in Washington either, and the way the new Bruce Allen/Mike Shanahan GM/coach combo is working, these aren’t your father’s free-spending Redskins. What does that mean with Porter and the Cardinals? Well, I don’t pretend to know. The Cards and Porter haven’t agreed to a deal yet, and I find it hard to believe Porter will suddenly drop his price before going to Washington. The ‘Skins, I suppose, will set the market.
No, I don’t know what will happen. Rod Graves said Monday he was in contact with Porter’s agent and I am sure that is continuing.
