NFL Free Agents: Saints CB Tracy Porter Plans To Visit Rams

New, comments

The St. Louis Rams are not quite done in free agency. They may not even be done adding cornerbacks, despite signing Cortland Finnegan to a five-year, $50 million deal. According to Paul Kuharsky, New Orleans Saints free agent cornerback Tracy Porter plans to visit the Rams and the Titans.

Porter's name came up as a potential target for the Rams early last week, before the team signed Finnegan. He obviously has a connection to the coaching staff in St. Louis with defensive coordinator Gregg Williams having been his boss in New Orleans for the last three years.

Porter was a second-round pick of the Saints' in 2008.

The Bengals had Porter in for a visit last week, and Oakland would reportedly like to bring him in for a visit as well.

This could be an interesting addition for the Rams, and probably a smart one. Like Finnegan he can play in the slot. The team's interest in Porter may signal concerns about Bradley Fletcher's health or the viability of Jerome Murphy. I would assume that Porter would start, though he would be a fine third corner to have on the roster.
