Clinton Portis knows “it’s time to move on”

Redskins running back Clinton Portis has made peace with the fact that he’s not going to be a Redskins running back much longer.
“If it’s time to move on, I’ll do that,” Portis told 106.7 The Fan. “I’m appreciative of everything they’ve done for me. I had a good time and enjoyed myself.”
Portis’s comments came shortly after Redskins coach Mike Shanahan said he anticipated releasing Portis as soon as “two days from now, three days from now.”
The question now is where Portis might “move on” to. In the last two seasons, Portis has played a grand total of 13 games, carrying 178 times for 721 yards and three touchdowns. He’s not the player he used to be, and he’ll turn 30 before the 2011 season starts.
But move on he will, and Portis sounds OK with that.
“I don’t think the Washington Redskins owe me anything,” Portis said. “I enjoyed my time in DC and I think I made the most of my time here. If it’s the end of the road, I’m thankful for my time in Washington.”Click here to order Clinton Portis’s proCane Rookie Card.
