On ESPN’s Rome is Burning Miami Dolphins linebacker Joey Porter has suggested that the best thing for him and the Miami Dolphins is to trade him as he doesn’t want to be a rotational player.
If the Bills decide to implement a 3-4 defense the Bills should pursue Porter.
Just think about it you would have a starting defense with Aaron Maybin and Porter at outside linebacker with Aaron Schobel and Chris Kelsay at defensive end, Marcus Stroud at nose tackle, with Paul Pozluszny and Kawika Mitchell at middle linebacker.
That is a pretty solid front seven that should give offenses a run for their money.
Porter is 33 years old so the Bills would have to draft another outside linebacker next year to learn under Porter for a couple of years.
To acquire Porter the Bills would most likely have to give up a third or fourth rounder, but it would be worth it as very rarely do those picks work.
Every year there are trades that can be made to improve a football team, and this would be one of them.
In the end the Bills would be fools to not go after Porter.
According to ProFootballTalk.com, Nebraska defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh is the most sure fire player in the upcoming National Football League Draft, and should go first overall.
As the saying,”don’t count your chickens before they hatch.”
Its too early in the process to declare Suh as the number one pick as there is the NFL combine this month and Pro Day workouts where another player could woo the Saint Louis Rams who have the first overall pick this year..
An example of this is from just a couple years ago when leading up to the Draft wide receiver Calvin Johnson was being complimented as the most sure fire pick in that year.
However, when the Draft came he went number two overall to the Detroit Lions.
All the time during the NFL regular season a game appears to be a sure fire win for one team, but when the game happens the team falls apart and loses for some reason.
In the end as Chris Berman of ESPN would say “that’s why we play the game,” because in life nothing is gauranteed.
