In search of help at the cornerback position, the New York Giants are taking a look at former New Orleans Saints Super Bowl hero Tracy Porter.
According to Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network, Porter is visiting the Giants after spending last season with the Oakland Raiders.
The Giants suffered injuries to the cornerback position that saw Trumaine McBride and Prince Amukamara elevated into starting roles. Corey Webster and Aaron Ross each appeared in just four games with the Giants before being lost for the year to injury.
In addition, Webster, Ross and Terrell Thomas are all unrestricted free agents for the Giants. McBride was schedule to be a free agent as well but re-signed with the team on Tuesday.
Porter had a strong bounce-back season with the Raiders last season after a myriad of issues in 2012. While with the Denver Broncos, Porter suffered a seizure and the aftereffects forced him to miss a significant amount of time. When he did returned, he suffered a concussion and was unable to play in the playoffs.
With Oakland last season, Porter started all 16 games. He racked up 67 tackles with two interceptions and even 1.5 sacks.
