The Saints just couldn't afford to pay a nickel or a dime CB $4M/yr - that being said, I hope Porter has a good season with the Broncos, so that he'll be able to get a long term contract come next off-season.

I'll miss him because of the huge plays he made, intercepting Favre and Manning in the playoffs. With all do respect to all the great players on our team that year, without Porter we might not have held on in the Super Bowl, and we may not have even gotten there.

But aside from a decline in his play recently, he has never been able to stay healthy, so while it would have been nice to keep him in some role, it just wouldn't have made much sense financially to pay a backup that kind of money.

Wonder if this means one less defensive player suspended half or all of the season???
