Get ready for the "link please" onslaught. In fact, I'll start:

Link Please. I think alot of teams would be interested in Portis but it probably stops there.

Re: broncos & portis

It's nothing more than the Denver papers picking up on the rumors that were floating around last week about the Skins possibly shopping Portis.

Portis on trade block
January 7
Denver Post: "There is speculation the Redskins might trade running back Clinton Portis. With backup Ladell Betts emerging and Portis' expensive contract, the Redskins may want to move Portis, but it will be difficult."

Re: broncos & portis

I think the skins would have a hard time trading CP. He older, dinged up and costs a lot of $. Thats the kind of player the skins love but most teams shy away from those types of players.

If the skins could unload CP I'd love to see them get a bunch of draft picks.

Thanks for the links.

Wasn't Portis unhappy in Denver anyway? Didn't they maintain he wasn't worth what he was asking? I thought that bridge was a pile of ashes at this point.

This is nothing more than pure speculation. Its a writer throwing out possibilities even if they are remote. Everybody thinks that just b/c Betts had a great year that all of a sudden we're not going to need CP.

He's only 25.

Age isn't the issue, his contract is.

Me too, but it won't happen. And age might not be the issue, but his mileage is.

Not only that, when Gibbs came back, he brought along two, personally hand-picked guys to build a winning franchise. We saw what it took for him to admit that one of those guys, Mark Brunell, had seen better days. Portis was the guy he was right about. So why would he get rid of him, when it took heaven and earth for him just to bench Brunell?

Well, that is misleading. Portis had a signed contract for another year at the low (relatively speaking) salary he signed as a rookie. He felt he deserved a new contract, the Broncos felt they signed him to a contract already so he should have honored it. I think the Broncos did the right thing. I get sick of players trying to renegotiate their contracts.

I know he's only 25 but he's been in the league what 5 years. Thats a longtime. The contract is the key issue but combined with the mileage on his body and the fact that he's dinged makes him a hard sell.
