Was the odd man out with the additions of Amukamara and Cooper. Pretty inconsistent player, but should find a home somewhere.

Decent depth guy IMO. Should catch on with a team looking for depth at corner

I was wrong, but he got $90 million.

Thought there was someone that got over $100 million that was ridiculous, but can't remember who it was if not Porter

Hate all you want, but I think Tracy Porter is one of the most underrated CBs in the NFL. Same can be said with DRC. They are both very similar in how they play--DRC being a little better though. Both excel in coverage skills, but tackling seems to be a afterthought with both of them.

I think a playoff contending team could really benefit from having him as their #2 or most preferably #3.

If you have 2 solid starters a guy like Porter to come in and try to jump routes and force turnovers as your #3 would be a great option. Always thought he was underrated when he played in Denver years back.

Porter was solid, but he was overpaid and struggled to stay healthy. After signing Amukamara and Marcus Cooper, having Kyle Fuller return from injury, and potentially drafting Marcus Lattimore at 3, its a crowded field and I'd rather have Cre'von LeBlanc and Bryce Callahan on the roster as NB's.

He'll make a good depth signing for a few years, I think.

Isn't this the guy that remixes videos into raps? If so, top 5 CB of all-time.

Saints would certainly qualify. It would be nice to have him back.

FYI, he was released with a failed physical designation.
