Tracy Porter, a former nemesis of Peyton Manning, has joined the 35-year-old quarterback at the Denver Broncos on Thursday.

As a New Orleans cornerback, Porter intercepted one of Manning’s passes, before running 74 yards to score a touchdown in the 2010 Super Bowl.

Porter’s big play helped New Orleans to a 31-17 victory over Manning’s former team, the Indianapolis Colts.

Porter and fellow free agent Andre Caldwell both signed with Denver on Thursday, confirming the team’s belief that the arrival of Manning would be a drawcard during recruitment.

Caldwell named the 11-time Pro Bowler as a key reason for his move from the Cincinnati Bengals.

“I was all on board after they signed Peyton,” the 26-year-old receiver said.

Prior to Manning’s arrival at the Broncos it had been suggested receivers would be reluctant to join Denver, due to the running game favoured by last season’s quarterback Tim Tebow.

Caldwell seemed to confirm that theory with his comments.

“Everybody knows with Tebow, they were more of a running-style team,” Caldwell said.

“They didn’t spread the ball around as much.

“(Manning) was a major impact.”
