The Oakland Raiders have announced the signing of veteran cornerback Tracy Porter. This signing is a quality move to enhance the Raiders depleted secondary.
Porter last season was limited to six games last year with the Denver Broncos for various health problems, the 26-year-old thus passes from a division rival in an attempt to revive his success.
The good news for him with the Raiders is that he will very likely hold the starting role opposite Phillip Adams in the secondary.
On the Raiders he will fit well since he's a capable right corner where he can play the slot in nickel formations. In his sixth-seasons in the NFL he’s made 43 starts and has 215 tackles, eight interceptions with four force fumbles
In Oakland, Porter will find Dennis Allen, who was his position coach in New Orleans, especially when the Saints won the Super Bowl. Presence has necessarily played in the choice of Porter.
