It Stinks Being Correct

It is now being reported that the Steelers have cut Verron Haynes and . . . Joey Porter.

According to comments reported on the Steelers' website, Kevin Colbert attributed the release of Mr. Porter to salary cap concerns:

"Releasing a player like Joey Porter, who has meant so much to this franchise and helped us win a Super Bowl championship, is not an easy thing to do . . . It's one of the decisions you have to make under this current system, and it's definitely a salary cap-related issue where we needed some short-term relief. But we also had to factor in what our cap situation is going to be in 2008 and 2009 and beyond."
