Broncos Pick Up CB Tracy Porter

Cornerback Tracy Porter intercepted Peyton Manning in Super Bowl XLIV and ran it back 74 yards for a touchdown. That sealed the New Orleans Saints 31-17 win over the Indianapolis Colts.

Once foes, Manning and Porter will now team up in Denver. The Broncos signed Porter to a one-year deal.

Porter was drafted out of Indiana in the 2nd round of the 2008 draft. In his four seasons with the Saints, he has 195 tackles, 7 interceptions, and 4 forced fumbles to his name.

This is someone that can come in right away and make a difference. The Broncos have been on the lookout for a veteran corner to compete for Andre Goodman’s job. They found just that in Porter.

Porter is a bit small (5’11”, 186 pounds) when you think about him going up against some of the big receivers in the AFC West, but he’s capable of making big plays.

Now that the Manning deal is done, the Broncos are looking for the best available talent to surround him. They also signed WR Andre Caldwell on Thursday.
