It’s the time of year when player are spending the last couple weeks in their hometowns — if they don’t live in the Valley — before coming back to Tempe for the grind of the NFL season. For linebacker Joey Porter, that means hanging out in Bakersfield, Calif., which is where he lives. The Bakersfield Californian did a story on Porter at home today, describing why he remains there.
Porter also talked about why he is happy to be a Cardinal — “It’s the best fit for me, for me and my family. (Coach Ken Whisenhunt) knows me, I know him. He knows exactly what he’s getting out of me” — and his wife Christy talked about Porter’s reputation — “He is who he is. And a lot of times, that’s a villain on the football field. But there’s another side a lot of people don’t get to see.”
