Linebacker Joey Porter, a four-time Pro Bowler, says he will end his 13-year NFL career where it started: as a Pittsburgh Steeler.
He said he has already talked to Steelers officials about the plan, according to a report on NFL.com.
"It'll be an honor to go out there and retire as a Steeler. Started there, end there. Thirteen years. I never thought I'd play that long when I first started," Porter, 35, told NFL.com Wednesday before a practice round of the American Century Celebrity Golf Classic in South lake Tahoe,
Porter, who was drafted by the Steelers in the third round in 1999, signed with the Miami Dolphins in 2007 and the Arizona Cardinals in 2010.
