Tracy Porter joins Washington Redskins

Kelley L Cox-USA TODAY Sports

The Oakland Raiders have not re-signed very many of their own this off-season with just Khaliff Barnes and Darren McFadden having gotten new deals to stay with the club. That trend has officially continued as the Raiders have now lost veteran CB Tracy Porter to the Washington Redskins.

Porter signed a one year deal last year with the Raiders and it was an up and down season. It started slow with an injury in preseason and it took awhile for him to get back up to speed with the team even though he managed to play in all 16 games. By the end of the year he was giving solid play and was definitely the best cornerback on the Raiders roster.

Tracy was visiting with the NY Giants before ending up signing this morning with the Redskins, so apparently he was destined for the East Coast. He recovered well here in Oakland after a disastrous one year stint with the Denver Broncos in 2012 where he only played in 6 games for them. He finished 2013 with 53 total tackles, 1.5 sacks, and 2 interceptions.

His stint in Oakland started off ugly when the team took his number 24 away from him and handed it to Charles Woodson without giving Tracy a choice on the matter. He voiced his frustrations on Twitter about it and immediately had the fans target him as a malcontent even though it was proven not to be true.

At that time it seemed like a possibility that Porter would end up being one and done with Oakland, which is exactly what ended up happening. Everybody moved on from the ugly beginning and Porter was a good teammate and player for a talent deficient club. Good luck to him as he moves on to his next squad.

The Raiders continue to lose free agents faster than adding them which is creating more holes on an already player needy team. They do have 3 potential free agents that reportedly were still in town for breakfast in Lamarr Woodley, Justin Tuck, and Jason Hatcher so signing those three players would do a world of good for a team that is in desperate need of some good news.
