INDIANAPOLIS - Clinton Portis says that he won't be upset if the Washington Redskins cut him rather than pay him the $8.3 million salary figure he is owed for the coming season. Redskins Coach Mike Shanahan said Friday evening at the NFL Combine that the team will allow Portis to shop himself to other teams and that they only would bring the 10-year veteran back at a significantly reduced figure. "With a guy with a high salary cap, I've always dealt with it a little differently," Shanahan explained. "If we're not going to sign Clinton to that high salary, I'll let him test the market out. Not to say we don't want him, but for a lower price, and obviously we'll try to find the best deal. It could happen. I don't want to say right now.

If the league goes to an 18 game schedule, then, IMO, you need two healthy backs. I do not see Portis lasting an extra two games. I would love for him to stay, but chances are he is gone. He will probably end up with the PATS and will split time with the Law Firm.

An extra two games?? We'd be lucky if he made it through half a 16 game season. Portis is done.

I'll continue to wear the 26 jersey - CP gave us some great years. Thanks for all the memories such as the first carry and some awesome blocks.

On another note - I have a DMac 5 jersey for sale. Low price.

I will continue to wear a Portis jersey proudly. I always loved his effort on the field.

Thankfully, I never bought a DMac jersey. Unfortunately, I bought a Haynesworth. You win some, you lose some.

The RB depth in this draft is terrific - impact players will be available well into the 4th round.

I still hope somehow we can keep him, and he can stay healthy.
