Friday the 13th definitely wasn’t lucky for Denver Broncos cornerback Andre Goodman.  The team released the veteran player after just three years.  Would the New Orleans Saints find a little luck in signing him to replenish their own ranks?

It would also be a bit of irony for Goodman if he did sign with the Saints.  That’s because it was the arrival of former Saints cornerback Tracy Porter that ended his time in Denver.

Porter signed a one-year, $4 million “prove it deal” recently after spending the first week or so in free agency.  The Saints lost another cornerback in Leigh Torrence last week when he signed with the Washington Redskins.

This leaves the Saints scrambling to stock the position since Porter was used as a rotational player and Torrence was a contributer on special teams as well as a backup in case of injury.

Right now, second year rookie Johnny Patrick is the only backup for both the left and right corner positions.  Meaning that if starters Jabari Greer or Patrick Robinson go down, Patrick is it and there is no backup man for him.

The Saints had Atlanta Falcons free agent cornerback Kelvin Hayden in recently to look at him as a possible replacement but the Chicago Bears snatched him up.

    Hopefully the Saints have some more salary cap space for Goodman right now we running on pens and needles this season has been hard on the Saints. Trying to get the defense up to standards if not we may be trouble. But I know our GM will make away we have the best GM in the NFL he knows how to get us what we need. This is why the NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell knocking out our masterminded staff trying to hurt our inner man but we are the WHO DAT NATION we are the elite of the NFL. GO SAINTS GO***

    Your right @larryjames836 if there is anyone that can find some space, it’s Loomis. Cornerback will have to be addressed in either FA or the draft. Thanks again for reading WDD!
