NFL Free Agency: Tracy Porter a Ravens solution to secondary problems?

Could the 8 year vet help Baltimore?

Aaron Doster-USA TODAY Sports

The Baltimore Ravens cornerback situation has not been pretty with this off-season. Baltimore has Jimmy Smith, and then a long list of candidates to be starting cornerbacks. Depth is also a problem for the Ravens, as back-to-back seasons they've taken practice squad members all across the NFL to be starters for the club. Maybe Tracy Porter could help.

The last five years for Mr. Porter haven't been the most ideal, jumping from New Orleans to Denver to Oakland to Washington to Chicago, the man has been a journeyman. But for a low cost the Ravens could possibly acquire the skilled CB to help build a better defense.

The last three seasons Tracy's statline: 107 combined tackles, 1.5 sacks, and 3 interceptions. These numbers could easily be helpful to Baltimore, and with little cap space Baltimore cannot search out huge deals. Porter will not be in range to acquire a mega-deal like Josh Norman or Prince Amukamara. The Ravens don't have the money either for Norman or Amukamara. Both groups are both looking for something similar, and maybe a deal could be in the works come free agency.
