Former Steelers linebacker Joey Porter has narrowed his wish list to the Miami Dolphins and Cincinnati Bengals and is nearing a decision, agent Jeff Sperbeck said Monday night.
"I think we'll have it wrapped up soon, probably within the next 24 hours,'' Sperbeck said.
Porter, who played eight seasons with the Steelers and is fourth in franchise history with 60 sacks, was released Thursday in a cost-cutting move.
He has been in contact with several teams, including Cleveland, Baltimore and Dallas.
"He's met with Miami, talked to Cincinnati. We're talking to both at this point,'' Sperbeck said. "The Dolphins came out to (California to) meet him. Cincinnati is interested in having him come out.''
Sperbeck said Porter came away with a good impression of the Dolphins.
"He was impressed by coach (Cam) Cameron and (general manager) Randy Mueller and the direction they're taking the team,'' Sperbeck said.
