The Denver Broncos sign CB Tracy Porter

The Broncos agreed to terms with CB Tracy Porter (5'11, 188lbs) to a one-year, $4 million contract. Porter is famously known for intercepting Peyton Manning, and returning it for a touchdown in Super XLIV.

Porter played in 14 games last year getting 52 tackles and 1 interception. Porter was drafted in the 2nd round by the New Orleans Saints in 2008. He played his college ball at the University of Indiana. In his career he has tallied 188 tackles, 1 sack and 7 interceptions.

From Rotoworld:

Still just 25 years old, Porter can start opposite Champ Bailey, allowing him to re-enter free agency in his prime after playing out the season on a prove-it deal.

Tracy can play right Cornerback and cover the slot. In other words, you're looking at Denver's new #2 Cornerback to play across from Champ Bailey.


He had a 4.37 40 yard dash time at the 2008 Combine.


The Scouting Report on Porter says:

Assets:

An elite burner who also brings intensity and polished cover skills. A playmaker who can both stay with most receivers man-to-man and adjust with nice reads to break off for Interceptions. The potential is also there for a return man.

Flaws:

Needs to add some muscle to his frame to avoid getting overpowered by big receivers. More bulk will also help with durability since he tends to be a little injury-prone.

Considered a good cover corner with great upside.

He missed 3 games in 2010 due to a knee sprain and it was later reported the injury was severe enough to need microfracture surgery on his left knee. Porter returned healthy for the 2011 season, but suffered a neck injury in Week 9 against Tampa Bay. On the first play of the game, Mike Williams and Porter collided with one another and Tracy was carted off on a stretcher. He ended up starting the next game and 6 of the remaining 7 games.

He also has a Super Bowl Ring.
