Clinton Portis Cut

Filed under: NFL football — michaelperchick @ 6:10 pm

Another day, and another former Cane out of a job.  About a week after the New Orleans Saints released former U standout Jeremy Shockey, the Washington Redskins parted ways with running back Clinton Portis.  The outspoken running back struggled to stay on the field, and battled a variety of injuries throughout his tenure in Washington.

Portis never seemed to mesh well with new coach Mike Shanahan, surprising since Portis enjoyed his best seasons early in his career while playing in Denver with Shanahan.

Portis turns 30 right before the season starts- not a great age to be hitting the open market.  On top of that, Portis has only played thirteen games the last two seasons.  Still, expect Portis to draw some interest from teams looking for an experienced back with big-play potential.
