Joey Porter: Paid less, still a Cardinal

Apparently Joey Porter decided remaining a Cardinal was worth taking a pay-cut.

I’m told Cardinals outside linebacker Joey Porter adjusted his contract and is a Cardinalless than a minute ago via TweetDeck Favorite Retweet Reply

Cardinals fans should be happy about this move.

Though Porter was a disappointment last year collecting just five sacks, the veteran linebacker still has some game. He should not be playing every down, but he can certainly be a situational pass rusher.

A 34-year-old, Porter can provide leadership at a position where the Cardinals are filled with youth. That, too, should not be discounted.

Even if Porter’s contract is.
