Bears Agree to Terms with CB Tracy Porter

Pittsburgh Steelers v Oakland Raiders

The Bears have added depth to their secondary, as the team has announced they have signed veteran cornerback Tracy Porter to a one-year deal.

Porter had been with the Redskins but was released a day after Jay Gruden said he had “flight issues” which kept him from the first day of OTAs.

Porter has also played for the Saints and Raiders, and spent a year with new Bears coach John Fox in Denver in 2012.

He was the hero for New Orleans in their Super Bowl win over Peyton Manning and the Colts, when he took a pick back to clinch their 31-17 win in Super Bowl XLII.

During that time with New Orleans, he started 60 of 68 games, recording 288 tackles, 10 interceptions and 52 pass breakups. He returned three picks for touchdowns. Porter also forced three fumbles and recovered three.
