Remember when we declared, "The Loud Mouth Era is over?"
Well, we meant almost over.
The Dolphins thought they had released disgruntled linebacker Joey Porter, but it turns out the termination was "invalid," according to a Dolphins press release on the matter.
It's unclear what went wrong, but no. 55 is still on the team, even if he does know his fate.
"The release of Joey Porter was determined to be an invalid termination," the team. "Therefore at this time, Porter reverts back to the Miami Dolphins roster."
The Dolphins have until March 10 to cut peezy before he is owed a $1 million roster bonus, so he can expect to get the boot before then.
The release is a no brainer after Porter told everyone and his mama that he no longer wanted to live in Margaritaville and that he thought Bill Parcells and coach Tony Sparano had no clue how to utilize his diminished skills.
Last season, Porter had 41 tackles, nine sacks and one forced fumble in 14 games. And then there was that game against the New England Patriots where he mouthed off about the "Tom Brady Rules" and how he was going to dominate despite the refs.
Instead, Porter was shut out completely by a rookie offensive lineman. That's Peezy for you.
If the Dolphins kept Porter they would have lost more than the $4.8 million in salary he would have been owed, but they also would have lost the locker room and the respect of all Dolfans.
Time and again last season, Porter over-hyped and under performed, which led to him being benched midway through the season and the ultimate feud between he and Parcells. Porter said he stopped talking to Parcells after the benching versus Tampa Bay.
We wish he would have just stop talking, period. Now, it only appears like a matter of time.
