Saints Should Consider Re-Signing Tracy Porter

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; We will always love Tracy Porter for obvious reasons, but back when he became a free agent I was fine with letting him walk for previously stated reasons. So I'm gonna add another "No" to the question....

Re: Saints Should Consider Re-Signing Tracy Porter

Great appreciation to Tracy Porter for two of the key interceptions of our championship season. He also is local kid from Port Allen which was always part of his appeal. I think the seizures he suffers from are starting to become an issue which most teams are afraid to deal with. Tracy like Darren Sharper are great memories of the best season in Saints history.

Re: Saints Should Consider Re-Signing Tracy Porter

That head/neck injury he had was actually pretty serious business and is precisely the sort of thing that can make a guy "lose a step" and maybe never get it back. Recovering from that type of injury can also affect a player psychologically in a game of split seconds and takes a long time to heal and come back from. I absolutely do not think he was "mailing it in" or wasn't trying, or was reading too much of his own press.

Your right on SB48 and i believe Denver saw what your saying. He has done his time and the injuries are to great to overcome. Someone will need him and i hope hes in it for the love of the game and not a one more lick to an NFL team for another quick million signing bonus.

Its the offseason and they can't think of anything better to speculate. That would just be stupid.Even at the vet minimum I wouldn't take him. We have better with more of an upside in White and Mack for cheaper. Also whats all this appeal with local players? If they come from here does that automatically make it a good signing? It seems like a lot of people would rather the home town boy with mediocre talent than someone who actually has talent. To me weather or not they come from here makes no difference. I love how everyone wants to jump on any LSU players they can think of. Even though more LSU players than not turn out to be busts in the NFL. Some guy on the other board wanted to TRADE to get T bob Hebert.
