The New Orleans Saints, apparently concerned that injuries to starting cornerbacks Tracy Porter and Jabari Greer could linger, brought in some insurance Tuesday night.

ESPNís John Clayton reports the Saints have signed veteran cornerback Chris McAllister.

Porter has a sprained MCL and could miss several weeks and Greer missed Sundayís game against St. Louis. The Saints have decent depth at cornerback with veteran Randall Gay and rookie Malcolm Jenkins.

But McAllister, a 10-year veteran and three-time Pro Bowler, could step right into the mix as one of the top three corners with Gay and Jenkins if Greer and Porter remain out. McAllister, 32, has been out of the league since the Ravens released him in February.

The undefeated Saints already have had good luck in bringing in one veteran defensive back. They signed safety Darren Sharper, 33, as a free agent and heís been an instant leader and one of the leagueís most productive defensive players.

Any word on who's leaving?

Porter going to IR (I doubt it) or is someone else being cut???

Agreed. I am sure they will ease him along slowly but it's nice to add veteran depth. McAllister knows how to play man so he will fit many of our schemes by default.

Re: Saints add depth with veteran CB McAllister

I had a feeling that they would bring someone in. Boy hope they strike gold twice in bringing in an "experienced" defensive back, begs one question though, if he had anything left in the tank then why was he available?

Re: Saints add depth with veteran CB McAllister

Who did Mc Allister play for last year? Is he good? Better than Mike MC?
