Bengals’ Andrew Whitworth: I don’t respect Steelers assistant Joey Porter

Monday January 11th, 2016

Two days after Steelers assistant coach Joey Porter stepped onto the field in Saturday’s wild-card win over Cincinnati and inserted himself into a scuffle, a pair of Bengals voiced their disapproval towards his actions.

Hours after cornerback Adam ‘Pacman’ Jones criticized Porter for saying “disrespectful things” towards players when he wasn’t even supposed to be on the field, offensive tackle Andrew Whitworth added his own comments.

“I respect the Steelers and coach [Mike] Tomlin,” Whitworth said. “Joey Porter is not one of the people I have respect for. His unprofessionalism is ridiculous.”

Whitworth serves as a captain for the Bengals, and has been with the team for 10 years.

The Steelers beat the Bengals, 18–16, on Saturday to knock Cincinnati out of the playoffs. Pittsburgh advances to play the Denver Broncos this Sunday.
