While talking to reporters on Wednesday during pre-draft preparations, Baltimore Ravens head coach John Harbaugh complimented former Penn State cornerback Joey Porter Jr. and also made a slight joke about his father, former Pittsburgh Steeler Joey Porter Sr., if the team drafts him.
“He’s one heck of a player,” Harbaugh said.
“The possibility of seeing Joey Porter a Raven fan, I think it would be great for us.”
Porter Sr. played for the Steelers from 1999-2006, where he was a two-time First-team All-Pro (2002, 2008), made three Pro Bowls, and was a vital part of the Steelers’ Super Bowl XL victory.
One of the most memorable moments of Porter’s career came after a 2003 game against the Ravens, where he allegedly went to confront Ravens Hall of Fame linebacker Ray Lewis on the Ravens team bus.
Baltimore currently owns the No. 22 pick in the upcoming NFL Draft and needs a cornerback after the release of Marcus Peters to play alongside Marlon Humphrey, who is also an NFL Legacy as his father, Bobby, played for the Denver Broncos and the Miami Dolphins.
Porter is scheduled to visit the Ravens sometime next week.
