Earlier this week, former Cardinal, Dolphin, and Steeler Joey Porter signed a one day contract to retire as a member of the Pittsburgh Steelers at the age of 35. A 1999 3rd round pick, Porter spent 8 seasons with the Steelers and won a Super Bowl. With them, he had 60 sacks. He then spent 3 years in Miami, where he had another 32 sacks, including an AFC leading 17.5 in 2008. He finished his career with 2 years in Arizona, where had had just 6 sacks, including just 1 last season. He retires with 98 sacks, 30th all-time, 4 Pro-Bowl appearances, and as a member of the Steelers All-Time team and the NFL’s 2000s All-Decade team. He’ll be a candidate for the Steelers’ ring of honor and a fringe candidate for the Hall-of-Fame.
