And with this tweet it begins, though Denver Broncos cornerback Tracy Porter has not yet given a follow-up to the tweet to clarify it is very much possible that Porter is referring to tomorrow’s lineup as Denver plays the Baltimore Ravens. Porter has not dressed for a game since Week Five when the Broncos faced the New England Patriots, he was ruled as ill when Denver traveled to San Diego to face the Chargers in a crucial Monday Night Football game in Week Six.
In his absence second-year corners Chris Harris and Tony Carter have stepped up nicely. Prior to the November game against the Cincinnati Bengals, the Broncos released more information saying that Porter was experiencing seizure-like symptoms. The corner had a seizure in August, so getting him properly medicated was a major concern.
Porter was named the Defensive Player of the Week for his performance in the season opener against the Pittsburgh Steelers, he has 21 tackles (16 solo), one interception, one touchdown and six pass defenses in five games on the season. Porter signed a one-year deal with $4 million with Denver, it is only clear that $1 million of that was a signing bonus, it is not clear how much of that contract is guaranteed and how much is tied to escalators.
