Default Joey Porter to the Dolphins

I don't have all of the details yet but here is what we know:

Mark Curnutte, of the Cincinnati Enquirer, reports the Miami Dolphins will sign free agent LB Joey Porter (Steelers) to a multi-year deal worth roughly $24 million Tuesday, March 6, according to WPXI-Channel 11. Porter will receive a signing bonus of roughly $12 million.

It sounds like overpaying for me and the guys on ESPN were saying the same thing ... too much for a guy who might just be a product of the Steelers' system and who had far too many unproductive games last season.

He played hurt a lot of last year I believe. But, what makes this a bit of a gamble is they are asking a guy whose strength was blitzing off of the corner in the 3-4 defense to convert to playing in a 4-3 defense that typically requires its LBs to play more pass coverage than pass rush. Unless they are planning on switching to a 3-4 defense it seems a bit of a pricey gamble at this stage of Porter's career.
