With all the talk about Donovan McNabb and Mike Shanahan this past season, Clinton Portis’ injury plagued season went under the radar until now. On Friday, Shanahan said that he was going to let Portis look around at other teams. Saturday morning, Portis was on 106.7 The Fan’s with Grant Paulsen and when told what Shanahan said, Portis had this to say:
“There is no reaction,” Portis told Paulsen. “This is a business. You’ve got to understand that.”
“I don’t think the Redskins owe me anything. I enjoyed my time in D.C. I think I made the most of time here. I’m appreciative of everything they’ve done for me. I had a good time and enjoyed myself. If it’s time to move on, I’ll do that.”
But move on to where? Portis’ body is starting to break down and I think the only teams that will take a chance on him will be teams that are rebuilding.
