Tracy Porter, Cornerback, UFA
Porter, a five-year NFL veteran, joined the Broncos on March 23, 2012. He was signed as an Unrestricted Free Agent. He opened the season as Champ Bailey's counterpart. In the season opener against Pittsburgh on September 9, 2012, Porter sealed the Broncos' victory when he intercepted a Ben Roethlisberger pass with 1:58 left in the game and returned it 43 yards for a touchdown. That performance led to Porter's being named AFC Defensive Player of the Week. Unfortunately, injury and health issues led to his being supplanted by Chris Harris as a starting cornerback.
Porter ended the season with six game appearances (four starts), one interception (returned for a touchdown), six passes defensed, sixteen tackles and five assists.
