New linebacker Joey Porter did an interview with Sports 620 KTAR this morning, noting that he never wanted to land anywhere else but Arizona (which seemed obvious) and that his trip to Washington may have expedited the process. As for his penchant for talking, Porter said he thinks coach Ken Whisenhunt was not only aware but comfortable with what Porter brings to the table.
“He knew exactly what he was getting, a guy who gets fired up on game day,” Porter said. “When it is time to rally the troops, I am going to make the main guy all the way to the last guy on the roster, when we come out of that tunnel, they can be whoever they are during the week but on game day, they are going to be trained assassins.”
As has been said before, Porter was a very good fit with the current Cards and where he stands in his career. “Arizona was my No. 1 choice from the beginning,” he said.
There is little question Porter brings with him attitude, which might be one of the reasons defensive tackle Darnell Dockett was so excited to see Porter come aboard. “None of the bullying stuff is going to happen to us,” Porter said. “If any of the bullying stuff happens, it’s going to be us on defense.”
