Broncos Free Agency 2012: Denver Signs CB Tracy Porter

The Denver Broncos have agreed to a one-year contract with free agent cornerback Tracy Porter, according to Adam Schefter of ESPN. The move continues the Broncos' efforts to re-load for a major championship run under new quarterback Peyton Manning.

ESPN's Bill Williamson reports that the deal is worth $4 million, and he also says that Porter will be the starting cornerback opposite Champ Bailey for the Broncos next season. Over the past three years, Porter has been primarily a starter for the New Orleans Saints after they drafted him in 2008.

Injuries have prevented Porter from ever playing 16 games in a season, though. He's started 34 games over the past three years, recording at least 45 tackles in each season, but he's only had one interception in each of the past two seasons after recording three picks in 2009.
