Portis Won’t Be Upset If the Skins Release Him

The Washington Post reports about the saga with Clinton Portis, and how he won’t be all that upset if the Redskins cut him and not pay him the $8.3 mil he’s owed.

Clinton Portis says that he won’t be upset if the Washington Redskins cut him rather than pay him the $8.3 million salary figure he is owed for the coming season. Head coach Mike Shanahan said Friday evening at the NFL Combine that the team will allow Portis to shop himself to other teams and that they only would bring the 10-year veteran back at a significantly reduced figure.

This morning, speaking with 106.7 The Fan’s Grant Paulsen, Portis said that he hadn’t talked with Shanahan, but that he understands the coach’s reasoning. “There is no reaction,” Portis told Paulsen. “This is a business. You’ve got to understand that.” Portis went on to say, “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.”
