Could a Super Bowl hero be returning home?
As several reports indicate, the possibility is there for cornerback Tracy Porter and the New Orleans Saints.
According to Aaron Wilson of Scout.com, Porter visited the Saints on Monday. However, the free agent wasn't signed.
The Saints have been looking to upgrade their cornerbacks, having signed Keenan Lewis and courted Nnamdi Asomugha this offseason. But Porter reportedly also has drawn interest from the Oakland Raiders, which is not surprising as Raiders coach Dennis Allen was the secondary coach in New Orleans during Porter's first three seasons, including that famed Super Bowl year.
Entering his sixth season, Porter is coming off his lone year with the Denver Broncos. He entered the season as the starter, but he played just six games mainly due to injury. He had 21 tackles and one interception.Follow Kenny Legan on Twitter @KennyLegan.
