Porter joins Broncos, partners with former foe Manning

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. -- Peyton Manning's appeal is already paying off.

The Denver Broncos agreed to terms with cornerback Tracy Porter, who picked off one of Peyton Manning's passes in the New Orleans Saints' win over the Indianapolis Colts in the Super Bowl three years ago.

Now, both will try to win a second Super Bowl together with the Broncos.

Porter spent his first four seasons in New Orleans, collecting seven interceptions, 37 pass deflections, four forced fumbles, and two fumble recoveries. He also started six playoff games, and the highlight of his career is a 74-yard interception return for a TD in the fourth quarter of the Super Bowl that denied Manning a second championship.

Porter was a second-round draft pick of the Saints in 2008 after a standout career at Indiana. He will start opposite perennial Pro Bowl corner Champ Bailey in Denver.
