he most likely will be released, but cannot be released until March 5.
It's likely the Dolphins could release him once the new league year kicks off March 5, but Porter also has a $1 million roster bonus due March 1. It's also possible Miami could try to trade Porter, though teams are typically hesitant about dealing for players they expect to be released.
we kind screwed ourselves here. now that teams know that we want to release him, he has ZERO trade value. you would think that the "trifecta" would have known something about this.
Who cares? They didn't plan on trading him today, why would they all of the sudden be disappointed now that they can't release him until March 5th?
well, if we kept it under wraps that they were planning on releasing him, there might have been a team or two that would have inquired about trading for him, or we could have packaged him in some sort of deal. he did have value, if we were going to release him, might as well at least TRY to trade him away for some kind of compensation.
PLUS, i think the reasoning behind todays effort in trying to release him was to avoid Porters bonus which is due March 4th. so they might just be disappointed that they cant release him til the 5th.
