With the Denver Broncos signing defensive back Tracy Porter in free agency, the team found it’s way out of the Andre Goodman situation.
The 33-year-old Goodman was released Friday after spending three seasons with the Broncos. He had 109 tackles, 7 interceptions, 1 sack, and 35 pass deflections during his tenure in Denver.
Goodman was challenged often during his time in Denver since he played opposite Champ Bailey at right corner. It became clear during the playoffs that Goodman was having trouble keeping up with speedier receivers as he was often beat in coverage and missed tackles in the secondary.
Goodman was selected by the Detroit Lions in the third round of the 2002 draft. He also spent time with the Miami Dolphins.
The man that they hope fills Goodman’s spot is 4-year NFL veteran Tracy Porter who comes to Denver after four seasons with the New Orleans Saints. He started 14 games for the Saints last season where he had 52 tackles, 1 interceptions, 9 pass deflections, and 2 forced fumbles.
