Yeah I noticed that too in the Cartwright/Campbell video.. I wonder what Shanahan was offering.

Re: Do you want Portis back next season?

That is one confusing ass poll, you have the thread titled, "Do you want him back?" and then you ask the question, "Do you want him gone?"

I voted "No" because I don't want him on the team. I think he should be gone. I was fine with his antics until he started throwing people under the bus, namely the starting quarterback. That can't slide, especially not with the poor production we've seen from him recently.

Cut his ass during the cap free season and go after a young guy with more gas in the tank.

Re: Do you want Portis back next season?

In a vacuum, yes, I want Portis back next season.

In reality, there's outside factors that may make it impractical to bring him back. We have to be mindful of the whole situation. The days of doing what Portis thinks should be done are over.

Re: Do you want Portis back next season?

I just think salary cap wise, it would be stupid to let Portis go despite his comments, just make it clear to him that anything less than 100% participation in all voluntary and non-voluntary activities will be unacceptable.

Draft a RB to come in as a change of pace back who takes over the starting role the following season unless Portis shows massive improvement

I agree with you; even if you wanted to keep him for one more year, his contract would really buckle you down any other time you wanted to get rid of him. Now is the best time.

Second, running backs are a dime a dozen and the person who drove home that philosophy is now the head coach. Portis isn't helping himself with all of these offseason distractions, and too be honest, he isn't the same player anymore. Let him go.

Re: Do you want Portis back next season?

I voted no, especially on the firm assumption of an uncapped year. I think he may bring something to the team IF he lives up to Shanahan's criteria, but the upside is not equal to clearing out his contract when a cap comes back and what a young RB who gets schooled by Shanahan's crew could bring to the team.

Re: Do you want Portis back next season?

Shanahan got rid of Portis after he posted 3000 yards rushing and 29 touchdowns. How on earth would he justify keeping him now? Financial reasons are the only thing I can think of.

Dump him.

No! It's time to move on and we need to start getting rid of the core guys the last 5 years.

Re: Do you want Portis back next season?

No! This guy is turning into a locker room plague.

Make way for the TO wannabe train. Choo Choo!

And at least TO could still produce. Portis can take his diva-ass somewhere else. PEACE.

Re: Do you want Portis back next season?

Kubiak is (at least was) a big Portis fan. Maybe he'll take him off our hands.

Talent wise I think Portis is the best RB we have and is still the best blocking running back in the league...still better to get rid of him a year too soon than a year too late

Give him one more season to see what he can do. He has given us some good seasons and deserves a shot when reunited with his old coach.
