The Washington Redskins announced today that they have signed unrestricted free agent cornerback Tracy Porter.

Terms of the deal were not disclosed.

Porter (5-11, 188) is a veteran of six NFL seasons who was originally selected by the New Orleans Saints in the second round (40th overall) of the 2008 NFL Draft.

He appeared in 43 regular season games with 39 starts for the Saints from 2008-11. In 2009, he contributed to New Orleans defeating the Indianapolis Colts in Super Bowl XLIV, returning an interception 74 yards for a touchdown with 3:12 remaining.

Porter signed with the Denver Broncos as an unrestricted free agent on March 23, 2012, where he started four of six regular season games and garnered AFC Defensive Player of the Week honors in Week 1 of the 2012 season.

Last season, Porter signed with the Oakland Raiders as an unrestricted free agent on April 3, 2013, appearing and starting in a career-high 16 games.

Last season, he established career highs in tackles (88) and sacks (1.5) and finished tied for the team lead in interceptions (two), one of which he returned for a touchdown.

In 65 career regular season games with 59 starts, Porter has compiled 336 tackles (257 solo), 64 passes defensed, 10 interceptions (three returned for touchdowns), four fumbles forced and two fumbles recovered.

Porter played collegiately at Indiana from 2004-07, starting in 43 games and registering 212 tackles, 16 interceptions and a school-record 413 interception return yards. He was a first-team All-Big Ten selection as a senior in 2007.

Porter, 27, attended Port Allen (La.) H.S., where he was first-team all-district as a senior. He was born on Aug. 11, 1986.
