Through a very reliable source, I've heard that he's supposed to go through this training regimen this offseason that involves him being cutoff from everyone but the training staff. If he is around next year and if he sticks to this refocused regimen, I'd be interested to see how the revamped CP does in Shanny's system.
OK i'm with you on all of that. If you look back at Denver games from when Portis was there, Portis ran outside the tackles, and the linemen were smaller and more agile than what we have. He was not a protypical redskin back. Gibbs and co. wanted him to be a pound the rock type guy, and so he was used as a workhorse here. He wasn't big or strong enough for that...so it just pretty much wore him out.

He might be able to get back in shape. I think the real question is his motivation...he has no motivation to get in shape, or practice, or attend meetings. At this point he expects to be cut and frankly, i don't think he really cares. A guy like him isn't going to change his stripes over night. He wants the job but he doesnt want to work for it.

He's done nothing in the last 2 years here to say that he's still a starter. If he gets in shape again, he might have 1 more servicible year....but that depends entirely on getting another back to help him. Portis isn't cut out for 25+ carries anymore at this point in his career...
Time to nut up or shut up

Portis will play on that team next year hopefully....the unemployed team
That is what I was hinting at. These guys are not team players.
A little humility on their part of Portis would go along way.
I wonder given Shanahan's history with Portis, how this go? Will he want to keep him or dump him?
