The Oakland Raiders and free-agent cornerback Tracy Porter have agreed to a one-year deal, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. Porter spent last season in Denver.

The corner appeared in just six games with the Broncos in 2012 due to a variety of ailments. First, Porter suffered a preseason seizure and the after-effects kept him out of several games. Then, upon his return, Porter suffered a concussion.

He did have an impact in his limited time with Denver, however. In the season opener, Porter intercepted Ben Roethlisberger and returned it for a score, helping lead the Broncos to a 31-19 victory.

In five seasons with the Saints and Broncos, Porter has 215 tackles and eight interceptions. He is perhaps best known for his Super Bowl-sealing pick-6 at the end of the Saints' 2009 championship season.
