It’s no secret looking at the Raiders defensive depth chart that the team needs help in the secondary. Like, a lot of help.
The Raiders have actively addressed other needs on defense with undervalued and, more importantly, under-priced free agents. Oakland no doubt will be following that strategy in addressing its defensive backfield.
The team has previously been linked to free agent cornerbacks Terence Newman and Mike Jenkins. And now the team is reportedly looking into 26-year-old Broncos free agent corner Tracy Porter:
CB Tracy Porter just told me via text he’s currently visiting with the #Raiders. “It was last minute. I got to Oakland yesterday.”

Porter signed a one-year deal with the Broncos last year but played in just six games, totaling 21 tackles and one interception, which he took to the house. He struggled to gain an edge on the depth chart after suffering a seizure over the summer, though he did fully recover.
