The problem the Saints face is that Porter will likely want a nice contract for himself, not huge but nice. The Saints have only a limited amount to spread around and it might not be enough to keep him.
Porter’s problem is that since his production has fallen off some, combined with his tendency to whiff and miss on big tackles, could dry the market up for him. In fact, NBC Sports writer Evan Silva has him ranked at #7 for cornerbacks listed in free agency.
Not that Porter is itching to leave and has mentioned he wants to return to the Saints if possible. When free agency opens in a little under three hours, we’ll see how far Porter’s journey will take him from his home in Port Allen and New Orleans.
