After being cut by the Washington Redskins following the 2011 season and failing to get a job with another team during this offseason, running back Clinton Portis has decided to retire.
Portis was a nine year veteran who played his first two years with the Denver Broncos and his last seven years with the Washington Redskins.
He ends his career with 9,923 rushing yards and 75 rushing touchdowns; 2,018 receiving yards and 5 receiving touchdowns.
It is interesting that Portis has chosen to retire as a Redskin rather than retiring with the team that drafted him with the 51st pick in the second round of the 2002 NFL draft.
Portis finishes 28th overall in all-time rushing yards.
