Porter finished in Miami

After three seasons in Miami, Joey Porter is out.

The Dolphins are expected to release the veteran linebacker today, according to Jay Glazer of FoxSports.com.

Porter, an 11-year veteran out of Colorado State, spent the first eight years of his career with the Pittsburgh Steelers before signing with the Dolphins in 2007. He recorded 42 sacks for the Fish over the past three years.

The news doesn’t come as much of a surprise. Porter requested a trade earlier this month and told reporters that he and head coach Tony Sparano hadn’t spoken to one another since Sparano deactivated the linebacker for a game back in November.

Unfortunately for Porter, he could have a tough time finding a team willing to pay him the $4.6 million he was owed in 2010.
