07:56 PM ET 03.26 | The Raiders are scheduled to meet with free agent cornerback Tracy Porter on Wednesday, ESPN reports. He met with the Saints, his former team, on Monday, and is expected to make a decision on his future soon. Porter played in six games for the Broncos last season, recording 21 tackles, one interception and one touchdown. He spent the previous four years with Saints, who drafted him in the second round in 2008. The Raiders are looking for starting cornerbacks, so interest in Porter should not come as a surprise provided that they had interest in him in recent years and head coach Dennis Allen coached him in New Orleans. But the question remains as to whether or not Porter would actually be able to help the Raiders or if he'd be the next in a long line of once great players to be shipped off to Oakland for their careers to die.

Wow. Being 'shipped off to die' wasn't even in the article they are crediting.

Guess that's what happens when you rely on blog sites for news. Liberties are taken.

Maybe. Now that the Crypt Keeper is gone, we'll see how they handle things.

Still... 6 games, a pick and a TD? Come see us in Pittsburgh, Mr. Man.

Porter has no memory of such a meeting.
