New Orleans, La. - In a matter of hours, two of the last prominent free agents that the Saints had expressed interest in were signed to one year deals by other teams.

Cornerback Tracy Porter, most recently of the Denver Broncos, but most notably the clincher of the Saints' Super Bowl XLIV victory, signed with the Raiders Tuesday.  He will be reunited with Dennis, now the head coach in Oakland.  The duo worked together in New Orleans when Allen was the secondary coach.

Tuesday afternoon, the 49ers inked cornerback Nnamdi Asomugha to a one year deal.  Asomugha visited with Saints defensive coordinator Rob Ryan early in free agency.  Asomugha made a name for himself in the Bay Area for the Raiders, mostly under Ryan's tutorship as coordinator.

With the signing of Keenan Lewis and release of Johnny Patrick, the Saints now have just four corners on the roster with significant experience.
