Saints Should Consider Re-Signing Tracy Porter
 
1 Attachment(s)
The former Saints (and most recently Broncos) cornerback is an unrestricted free agent this offseason. All of his faults considered, Tracy Porter would be a good investment for the New Orleans Saints secondary.

Why? He was benched in Denver and looked awful his last season here. I'm skeptical that he's suddenly gotten better.

My main interest would be the vet minimum part.

He's not very big or physical but he's fast. Maybe he just didn't fit Denvers scheme. I have no issues brining him back at a reasonable cost.

I'd be OK with that I guess. Is there a vet sub-minimum?

I'd rather bring in some younger up and comers. Rob Ryan likes man-press CB's that can re-route WR's off the line. I'm not sure Tracy gives us that press part.

He was let go for shoddy coverage in 2010 and 2011, then got benched in 2012 by the broncos for the same thing allowing 3 TD's in one game

Why would we re-sign him?

He wasn't re-signed for a reason, and I doubt he would fit Ryan's scheme any better than he did GW's during his last season with the Saints.

Thanks for the memories, but no thank you to his future services.


Talk about being a poor open field tackler...

Yeah, thanks for the memories but I would rather develop new, young healthy guys.

Well... The altitude was a medical concern for him, he discovered... Yeah... As a backup for the min.... Possibilities there.

He's always injured
