MIAMI -- Joey Porter took his diatribe against the Miami Dolphins to the next level Sunday morning on the NFL Network.

After a week of allowing himself a modicum of wiggle room in discussing his future with the club, Porter told "NFL GameDay Morning" he has put on a Dolphins uniform again.

"Strapping on that Dolphins jersey, yes, this year was the last time," Porter said.


The Dolphins' season ended five weeks ago, but Porter's blood still is boiling over the way head coach Tony Sparano treated him. Porter was benched for a game and kept on the sideline in favor of younger outside linebackers Cameron Wake and Charlie Anderson.

"If it was a situation where the guys were better than me, then you just have to move on," Porter said. "But if it's not a changing of the guard, they just have to sit and wait their turn. Nobody is that good enough behind me to be stepping on my toes.

"When I was in Pittsburgh, I knew [James] Harrison was getting better. It was a question of 'How can we pay both of these guys because [Harrison] can do what Joey can do?' I understood that. That is not the situation here. It's a big drop off."
