Tracy Porter possibly re-signs with Saints?

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; Porter is good. He's no Deon Sanders, I get that, but the fact is....WE HAVE NO PASS RUSH!!. Even during the SB pick, as Boomer stated... "They brought everybody" and still, they got nowhere near Manning. Porter read that route ...

"They brought everybody" and still, they got nowhere near Manning. Porter read that route like a Road Scholar. Get him a little help up front and he can make plays is what i say. I'd even say that for all our CB's. They are simply not getting much help in that dept.

They're all small, but at least Greer and Robinson have better verticals than Porter, which might explain some of that perceived technical weakness ChrisXVI was talking about.


Combine results for the vertical leap:

Robinson: 39.0 inches
Greer: 36.5 inches
Porter: 34.0 inches
Patrick: 32.0 inches

Average vertical leap for a corner from the past 4 year's combines and pro-day results is ~36.82 inches.

He played well in 2009, regressed a bit in 2010, and was out of place as a NB in 2011.

I'm pretty sure he won't cost much and he's shown he has the talent.

I think it would be a solid signing if he's not asking for too much.

At least he has a great football name... Flajole, that is. That has got to count for something!

If he could be returned to a friendly cap number, why not bring him back?

And with the changes in the coaching staff, he may get back on track...

I really believe that Tracy is a good DB. I think he let a lot of the media hype about him go to his head. If he comes cheap, I'm all for the re-signing of him. If he wants big money.... thanks for the INT in the SB!
