New England Patriots Training Camp: Pats Reportedly Work Out Clinton Portis

Clinton Portis has reportedly worked out with the New England Patriots, according to a report from The Boston Herald. Portis, a running back formerly of the Washington Redskins and Denver Broncos, was released by the Redskins this spring due to a salary cap move.

Portis was once considered one of the league's premier backs and has rushed for 9,923 yards and 75 touchdowns on 2,230 carries in his nine-year career. Portis has played in 113 games, starting all but five of them.

In 2003, his second season in the league, Portis rushed for a career high 1,591 yards and scored 14 touchdowns on the ground in 13 games. In his rookie campaign in '02, Portis darted for 1,508 yards and a career-high 15 scores.

Last season, Portis played in only five games, rushing for 227 yards and two touchdowns on 54 carries. In 2009, Portis didn't fare much better, playing in eight games and rushing for 494 yards and one touchdown on 124 carries.
