MAR 15, 2014 11:57a ET
Porter signed his contract Saturday morning, making him the latest addition to the Redskins defense during free agency.
Porter has 10 career interceptions in six NFL seasons with the New Orleans Saints, Denver Broncos and Oakland Raiders. He started all 16 games for the Raiders last year and had two interceptions.
The Redskins have been seeking a replacement for Josh Wilson, who is a free agent. Porter is expected to compete with second-year player David Amerson for the starting cornerback job opposite DeAngelo Hall.
