Well, Robinson already replaced Porter last season as the #2 CB on the roster. Porter would be the nickel in all likelihood, and he'd have to battle Patrick for that spot.

If nothing drastic happens during the FA period, the draft, the camps, and the OTAs - the starting CB pair will be Greer and Robinson.

But, the Saints still need to have more depth at the CB position in the coming season, so that is where re-signing Porter might be a valid option if he is willing to re-sign to an affordable deal.

Also, we don't know what Spags, Flajole, and Curtis are looking to do with the secondary, so they might be looking to do some changes in the personnel.

As do I, but I think Porter plays better on the outside. The move to nickelback didn't do him any favors.

Playing on the outside hasn't done him any favors either for the last 2 seasons. Porter causes so many pass interference calls because he's little and climbs receivers to break up passes.

It would be better if he knew how to tackle.

Resigning him would be smart. His numbers went down last year so we would get him for cheaper then what he is worth. You can never have enough corners.

I'm with Danno and others on this. I have felt all along that we have decent talent on the D side, it was just the way GW used them. Some coaches tailor their scheme around the type of talent they have and some...well some just do whatever the hell they want no mater who is playing. Not mentioning any names Greg Williams. Oops, did I just say a name?

I say let's see what Spags and company can do with them.

I doubt that very much. He is the most likely Saints' FA to be over-payed by another team, because many still remember him as the "Manning-killer" from the Super Bowl - that'll probably diminish the effect of his actual stats.

The Saints' FO have a figure in mind for which they would be willing to re-sign Porter, but it's very likely that some other team will offer Porter more - then it's just a matter of whether Porter wants to remain a Saint or follow the money.
