NFL Trade Rumors:
According to Bill Williamson of ESPN.com, the Oakland Raiders have been in contact with free agent CB Tracy Porter.
Williamson adds that the Saints have interest in Porter as well.
Raiders is also considering CBs Terence Newman and Mike Jenkins, according to Williamson.
Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald mentioned over the weekend that the Dolphins have also inquired about Porter as well.
Porter, 26, signed a one-year deal with the Broncos last season, but only wound up playing in only six games for them. He unfortunately suffered a seizure during the summer, but never managed to regain a starting role in the team’s defense.
Oakland needs to find some defensive backs before the start of the season and Porter seems like a decent enough fit, given that head coach Dennis Allen actually coached Porter while in New Orleans.

"As noted Monday, it's possible that we may have seen the last of Carson Palmer in an Oakland Raiders uniform, as it's "highly unlikely" that the QB will take a pay cut, according to ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter.
