We all know Joey Porter can have a potty mouth that keeps everyone not wearing a Jets uniform entertained. But in the Sports Illustrated that hits the stands and mailboxes Wednesday, we learn Porter has a dirty reputation, also.
In a poll of 296 NFL players, Porter tied Washington's Albert Haynesworth as the second dirtiest player in the league.
Six percent of players who responded said Porter and Haynesworth were the dirtiest. Pittsburgh Steelers receiver Hines Ward, the master of the blind side block, garnered 11.6 percent of the votes to be considered the dirtiest player in the NFL.
Porter is 14th on the Dolphins with 12 tackles this season. He has 2.5 sacks, which is tied with Cameron Wake for third on the team in that category, behind Jason Taylor (5.5 sacks) and Randy Starks (3.5 sacks).
