Clinton Portis To Visit With Seahawks
Aug/31/11 11:51 PM Filed in: Clinton Portis
According to NFL.com's Jason LaCanfora, former Washington Redskins running back Clinton Portis will visit with the Seattle Seahawks on Wednesday. Portis hasn't been as effective compared to his earlier pro-bowl years, but there was enough interest from head coach Pete Carroll and the Seawhawks' braintrust to take a look at Clinton.
The 29 year old Portis has played in only 13 games during the last two seasons combined, missing 19 of 32 regular-season games over the past two years with Washington. Portis was one of the most dominant backs in the league from 2002 through 2008, rushing for more than 1,200 yards in six of his first seven seasons in the league. He earned the NFL rookie of the year award in 2002, and is a two time pro-bowler. He currently is only 76 yards shy of 10,000 career yards, sporting 75 touchdowns in his career thus far as well.
Seattle isn't exactly in need of another aging running back, but if there is talent to be had out there still, it's always prudent to do their due diligence.Click here to order Clinton Portis’ proCane Rookie Card.
