Bears released CB Tracy Porter.
30-year-old Porter started 28-of-30 games he appeared in for the Bears the past two seasons but was an inconsistent, up-and-down cover man and a big part of Chicago's bottom-barrel pass defense. The release saves the Bears $3.6 million against the cap. Chicago signed Prince Amukamara and Marcus Cooper to be its new starting corners earlier this offseason. Apr 10 - 10:31 AM

Bears LCB Tracy Porter is day to day with a knee injury.

Porter missed only five snaps against the Jaguars, but has just three days to get healthy for Week 7 with the Bears playing on Thursday Night Football. The Bears' defense has overachieved through six games, but has nothing in the way of depth, especially in the secondary.

Bears LCB Tracy Porter (concussion) is expected to be ready for Sunday's opener.

It's welcome news for the Bears' banged up secondary. Porter missed two games last season, and 13 in 2014.

Bears CB Tracy Porter exited the third preseason game with a possible concussion.

He took a knee to the back of the head from a teammate late in the second quarter. He stayed down on the turf for several minutes before being escorted to the locker room. With Kyle Fuller out with a knee injury, the Bears are very thin at corner.
Sat, Aug 27, 2016 02:24:00 PM

Bears re-signed CB Tracy Porter to a three-year, $16.5 million contract.

The deal includes a $900,000 signing bonus and $4.25 million in guarantees. Going on 30, Porter started 13 games last season. His 856 snaps were largely ineffective, though he was better in the second half of the season. His salary suggests he'll remain one of the Bears' starters for 2016.
Wed, Mar 9, 2016 05:29:00 PM

Bears coach John Fox said CB Tracy Porter will get looks at nickel back in camp.

"I think he’s smart, he knows how to cover, and he’s got excellent ball skills," Fox said. "He can play in all three spots on the sub defenses. So we’ll wait and see how it shakes out." Porter was expected to serve as Washington's primary slot corner last season, but hamstring and shoulder injuries limited him to three games. Porter has been a liability in coverage the last several seasons, but he could find a role in the Bears' underwhelming secondary.

Bears signed CB Tracy Porter to a one-year contract.

Washington cut ties with the injury-prone corner last month. Porter is most remembered for his clutch interceptions against Brett Favre and Peyton Manning in the 2009 playoffs. The 29-year-old hasn't received a positive grade from Pro Football Focus since 2010 and is unlikely to help the Bears' secondary.

Redskins released CB Tracy Porter.

The move saves the Redskins about $2.3 million in cap space. Signed to a two-year, $6 million contract last offseason, Porter played in three games for the Redskins before missing the rest of the season with a shoulder injury. Highly injury-prone throughout his career, Porter has played a full 16-game season just once. Porter turns 29 in August and has been a liability on the field recently.
Wed, May 27, 2015 11:14:00 AM

Redskins placed CB Tracy Porter on injured reserve with a shoulder injury, ending his season.

Porter sprained his AC joint in Week 12. The Redskins' No. 3 corner played just 89 snaps this season. Andrew Luck and the Colts' passing game are just licking their chops at the Week 13 matchup awaiting them on Sunday.
Wed, Nov 26, 2014 03:29:00 PM

Redskins CB Tracy Porter (sprained AC joint) could miss "significant time."

The Redskins' No. 3 cornerback, Porter could be headed to injured reserve if he's dealing with anything other than a 1-2 week injury.
Mon, Nov 24, 2014 03:29:00 PM

Redskins CB Tracy Porter has been cleared for training camp.

Porter missed the entire offseason program recovering from shoulder surgery. Now that he's been cleared, he'll get the majority of snaps at slot corner, with David Amerson and DeAngelo Hall starting outside.
Sat, Jul 26, 2014 03:59:00 PM

Redskins CB Tracy Porter (shoulder) is expected to be ready for training camp.

Porter missed the entire offseason program recovering from shoulder surgery. The Redskins "expect him to be fine" when camp opens later this month. Porter is the favorite for the slot role behind David Amerson and DeAngelo Hall. Rookie Bashaud Breeland will likely start the season as the No. 4 corner.

Redskins CB Tracy Porter underwent shoulder surgery this offseason.

Porter is still recovering from the surgery, but should be ready for camp. Signed to a two-year, $6 million deal in March, Porter is penciled in as the Redskins' nickel corner. He could face competition for snaps from rookie Bashaud Breeland, which would allow DeAngelo Hall to cover the slot in sub-packages.
Sat, May 17, 2014 05:07:00 PM

Redskins agreed to terms with CB Tracy Porter, formerly of the Raiders, on a two-year, $6 million deal.

Porter, 28 in August, started all 16 games for Oakland in 2013, playing 1,016 snaps. It was the first time in his career Porter played a full season, and the results weren't pretty. He graded out 105th in Pro Football Focus' 110-man cornerback rankings, and an abominable 106th in pass coverage. Porter has experience at both outside and slot corner. With DeAngelo Hall and David Amerson on the perimeter, Porter will likely replace Josh Wilson at nickel.
Thu, Mar 13, 2014 01:36:00 PM

Free agent CB Tracy Porter is visiting the Giants.

Porter has been getting burned in coverage for years, but NFL teams still seem to see potential in him. He's 27 years old with experience covering the slot and playing outside. He'd enter a camp battle to start with the G-Men.
