Portis to re-sign with redskins, 3 year, 20 million

Just saw this on ESPN this morning. CP will be returning to the redskins when/if the 2011 season begins. He is inked in for a 3 year deal that will pay 20 million.
There is a press conference scheduled for 1PM today, but Portis was on the radio this morning talking about the deal.

A summary of what he said:

Said he was happy to get the call. He said he had no complaints, even though he wanted to test the waters a bit. He said he's glad he gets to finish his career with the Redskins. He promised that he would get the rushing title this season, and also promised that he would show the league he "wasnt no old man" and he "had plenty left". He said he's not talking any jive, but they didnt agree on this contract for him to sit on the bench or "play a few plays". he said he is looking forward to coming back. he said the redskins this year will be "contenders" and not "pretenders". Loves coach Shanahan and cant wait to get back to work. Said a presser is coming at 1 PM.

Thoughts?? I'm personally not happy with the move, but nothing can be done and maybe we can get one more good season out of him, and maybe we make the playoffs.....

Lol. I tried to make his quotes sound as ridiculous as possible while still sounding "official" I mean really, the skins didnt bring him back in real life because he was owed over 8 million next year, and to re-sign him for 3 more years at almost 7 million, lol. And then "Portis" saying he wasnt signed to be a backup or play "a few plays", implying he was the guaranteed starter. Lol again.

Re: Portis to re-sign with redskins, 3 year, 20 million

I'd just posted b-day wishes for a friend on facebook, so I was already in april fool's mode. Honestly only got my attention for a split second & then I knew it was an april fool joke before I opened it. Well written though. My only critique is; couldn't we have had a janky spanky presser?

Didn't have to click the thread to know this was a joke. Portis isn't coming back regardless of pay.

Guys, a recent interview with Portis about the whole thing and how he feels.
