LB Joey Porter’s campaign for his release during Super Bowl week had nothing to do with the team’s decision to cut him Feb. 12. “It’s all based on performance on the field, why we released him,” Ireland said. Porter was placed back on the roster because of a salary-cap snafu and cannot be cut until March 5. Ireland said “there’s always a chance” the Dolphins keep Porter - a fat chance.
The Dolphins are officially leaving the window open for Porter's return, but it's not going to happen.
