Report: Raiders, Porter agree

The Raiders have reached agreement on a one-year contract with free agent cornerback Tracy Porter, ESPN reported Tuesday.

Porter, 26, played for the Denver Broncos in 2012 and 2013 after playing three seasons for the New Orleans Saints.

Best known for his 74-yard interception return for a touchdown against Peyton Manning in Super Bowl XLIV, Porter was a second-round draft pick out of Indiana . Raiders coach Dennis Allen was Porter’s secondary coach with the Saints.

Porter fell out of the Broncos rotation after issues with medication and regulating seizures limited his availability in October and November.

The first cornerback from outside the organization to sign with the Raiders during free agency, Porter joins Phillip Adams, Chimdi Chekwa and Brandian Ross on the roster.

    ““palmer WILL NOT BE GAME 1 STARTER” as incorrectly predicted by some….lol”

    He is still on the roster Einstein so you might want to wait before getting all self indulgent and going into a masturbatory state there guy.

    PRYOR IS GONE!!!

    So your get rid of Palmer to give Pryor a chance did not work our for you, therefore making your prediction null and void!

    +++++++++

    666, You can hold on to the hope that palmer is staying however, if you listed to DA’s presser he is done in oakland.

    Flynn signing is good for the NATION. I will pull for Flynn, and PRYOR to be successful, they are both Raiders.

    Flynn did throw for 400+ yards and 6 TDs against the Lions. Haha. Pulling for Pryor tho.

  • The_Judge37

    I like that Flynn will be in competition with Pryor. It sends a message that even though we traded for you and you’re making more money, you’re still just Camp Fodder like everyone else.

  • Kirk

    I think Pryor and Flynn both look good.

    We need another offensive tackle to protect them.

    DA had a big hand in the Porter signing, he had long talks with Porter and don’t forget DA was with the Donks. Give the guy a break. No one like Norv either and he did just fine with the Bolts

    If we can just get Jordy Nelson to come with Flynn, we will be in business.

    Pryor threw to Hagan and Streaker.

  • beach

    Palmer deserves to get scr_ewed in this deal. He either goes to AZ with us receiving at least a draft pick, or sits on the roster until June 1. To heck with Carson, the big arm, INT machine, QB.

    “So does this mean he will be day 1 starter?”

    No simpleton you know exactly what it means if not you are one of those indigent retard Raider fans we read about on other teams blogs.

    ++++++=

    What happened to you 666? One could talk football with you all day, now its name calling an insults.

  • raidertbone

    Streaker? Really?

    I truly hope who ever is behind center does well.

    Flynn and Pryor are both Raiders.
    ___________
    YES! a Real Raider fan without an agenda

    >>>>

    Exactly, if Pryor truly did suddenly learn to clean up his mechanics enough to where he can pinpoint passes with velocity and WIN the starting job, the Raiders will be a very good team!

    But thats not what the Pryor Brigade want. They want him to just be given the starting job without earning it and then see what happens. Like Palmer (and now Flynn) should just step aside…

    Its annoying as hell.

    It makes me want to root against him…

  • raidertbone

    Carson reminds me of Jeff George

  • http://polarityblog.com Silverandblack666

    I could care less who our QB is I am just pizzed off at how RM is having a fire sale.

    IMO this spells the end of the Raiders in Oakland. That is why I am so upset.

    In the end I could care less about Palmer, Russell, Aaron Brooks, Jeff Hostettler, Jay Schroeder, TP6 and or Gannon as anyone here will tell you I was an Al Davis Bootlicker.

    Tarps on the seats and a complete fire sale! OK I can see that…..but then bring in a guy that has the same cap impact, give up 2 future draft picks and pay him almost as much as Palmer. This QB has 2 NFL starts!

    I would have rather VY than Flynn as he has a history.

    The worst part of this that gives me little or no faith in RM is that HE himself restructured that Palmer contract last year AND yet Reggie McJenzie did not have enough foresight to see this coming….what a retard!!

    TP has a bigger arm than Wilson??? What?? Are you high? TP lobs. His actual arm might be bigger but he sure can’t throw it like Wilson. Put the crack pipe down dude… lol

    go watch some highlights and when you realize i’m right, you don’t have to mention it

  • hwnrdr

    Well, there it is…Schefter just tweeted that Cardinals gives us a conditional 7th rd pick for Palmer

  • hwnrdr

    Well, if he starts 13 games in 2013, we will get 7th in 2014

  • Thec

    Now that its sinking in that 27 million means no Pryor starting your anger is seeping in.

    Calm down take a few breaths and realize that you are just a simpleton and there is nothing you can do about it.

    As you were..

    ++++++++

    666, not angry one bit. I am actually pretty calm. I try not to be disrespectful to others by name calling.

    However, if one looks at your post, you seem angry not sure why.

    As stated Flynn, and PRYOR will get 200% support from me.

    As long as they ball when they play. If not ship them noth out…

  • RNOraiderFan

    Next year (hopefully) we won’t be drafting this high. While we have a top 10 pick I would like it to be on a kick ass pass rusher. One that will make O coordinatos game plan for. A 14+ sack guy every year. just a complete bad ass.

  • LTR

    Hopefully Porter works out better than Bartell and Spencer. 0-2 in my book. Anybody remember who the corner was that we cut when Curry came off of the PUP?
    Then cut Curry the next week. This regime does not instill confidence IMO.

    I apologize dude I am sorry I can hear the moving trucks backing up in Oakland and I am deeply hurt by this.

    Sorry to rain on your parade you Pryor fans do deserve a chance to see what the kid has. I just don’t see it now that RM has signed his guy.

    Sorry.

  • RNOraiderFan

    Pryors greatest strength is his deep ball…… at least it was going into college. I hope he has picked up some other strengths the past 4 years.

    Palmer did good when he had guys who can go up and get his passes. Mike Williams at USC, Ocho-5, TO, Housh, D.Moore… So he should be alright with Fitz.

    200. OMG. Priest is good for many laughs. Pryor is better than Russell Wilson? Flynn cannot compete with Alex Smith? Jamarcus is the “Black Moses?” Priest, you know absolutely nothing about the QB position. This is not an opinion. It is a FACT!

    Wrong! Its a surprise he got anything for Palmer considering everyone knew we were going to release him anyway.

  • Charlie

    666

    RM is managing cost not cutting cost.

    First things first; you have to have talent on the field.
    49-111 over the last ten years under seven different coaching staffs tells you our players are bad. NOT THE COACHES.

    Once we get the talent which will be done primarily through the draft, we will pay for performance.

    This is a multi year project. That is why Reggie and DA have four year deals.

  • PurpleDrank81

    Everyone said it would be impossible to trade Palmer…. Yet we did and also saved 6 million in Cap Space. Good riddance Quitter

    LOL!!

    true Gdog, but like I’ve been saying.. the Cards don’t want to get into a bidding war for Palmer’s services if he were to become a free agent

  • hwnrdr

    LOL, AZ gave him 2 yrs, $20 million!

    palmer is better than flynn…he will regret the decision is all im saying…
