    Default Patriots sign Kent St.'s Jermail Porter

    Hell, it worked for them with Stephen Neal, why not try it with Jermail Porter?

    Elsewhere the New England Patriots locked up Kent State?s heavyweight wrestler Jermail Porter. Nobody knows where they?ll try to play him (Porter once said guard and tackle were potential destinations), and it?s entirely possible that Belichick signed him to scare the shit out of the other 20 or so rookies coming to mini-camp.

    I'll be rooting for him! Heck, the Patriots seem to realize that wrestlers have potential. Must come from Belicheks time around the Naval Academy?

    Great news for wrestling, for sure! Porter is definitely a stud. Gotta think that Stephen Neal helped the NFL rediscover the value in hiring athletic big men of the mat, just like the good old days of wrestling champs-turned-football stars of the past, like NCAA hwt champs Jim Nance and Sherwyn Thorson in the 1960s, and countless others in the 1970s, 80s and since.

    Don't forget Carlton Haselrig. 6X NCAA champ that did not play college ball. He became an All-Pro lineman with the Steelers. I am pretty sure Neal has never been named All-Pro.

    So porter has never played ANY organized football? How many people have made the NFL in a non wideout/punter/kicker without any previous experience?

    Although Neal has not been All-Pro, the fact that he's been the starting guard for the best team in football for the last 5 years, says something for what he's doing.
