Some of you may remember Tracy Porter from Super Bowl XLIV.
With the Colts trailing the Saints 24-17, Peyton Manning (hm, sounds familiar) was leading the Colts on a drive that could've tied the game. On third and five, Manning dropped back to pass and targeted Reggie Wayne on a slant route.
Porter read the throw and jumped the route, getting to the ball before it got to Wayne. Porter took the ball 74 yards for a touchdown, and he pretty much sealed the Saints' first championship.
In 14 regular season games last year, Porter intercepted just one pass and recorded just 52 tackles. Porter did record 11 tackles in two postseason games, but overall, he didn't have a great year. In Denver, expect that to change.
Porter will get a lot more playing time in Denver, as the Broncos struggled with pass coverage last year. However, with Champ Bailey manning one side, a lot of passes should come Porter's way.
Luckily for Denver, Porter will be able to handle it.
Porter can stay with the best receivers and is very fast (he ran a 4.37 40-yard dash). He makes great reads, so he can break away from his receiver to get an interception (much like he did in Super Bowl XLIV).
With a great opportunity, expect the speedy Porter to shine. If Porter does break out (which he will), he'll take Denver's secondary from near-worst to near-first.
