Tracy Porter Is Angry That He Had To Give No.24 To Charles Woodson
Tracy Porter wore jersey No. 22 with the New Orleans Saints for the first four years of his career and again with the Denver Broncos last year. However, he decided he wanted to wear No. 24 when he signed with the Oakland Raiders earlier this offseason. Now that Oakland has brought back Charles Woodson, that plan has been spoiled.
Woodson wore No. 24 with the Raiders from 1998-2005. When the 36-year-old veteran returned to the city where he began his career, the team apparently decided he could have his old number back — even though Porter had already claimed it. Porter did not seem pleased.
Back in May, Woodson said he was still negotiating with Porter to try to get the number. If the number was indeed straight up taken from Porter and given to Woodson, I can understand why he’s upset. That’s usually not the way it’s handled.
