NFL Free Agency: Clinton Portis Works Out With New England Patriots, According To Report

Having already acquired Albert Haynesworth in a trade, the New England Patriots have kicked the tires on another former Washington Redskins star. The team brought in running back Clinton Portis for a workout on Friday, according to Ian R. Rapoport of the Boston Herald.

The Patriots worked out another marquee name yesterday, kicking the tires of former Washington running back Clinton Portis. He was in for a workout along with former Ravens receiver Mark Clayton and linebacker Ricky Brown, a former Raider who played at Boston College, sources said.

Portis was released by the Redskins before the lockout, as many injuries have limited his effectiveness. He gained just 227 yards last season on the ground and was sidelined with a neck injury for much of the year. Rapoport theorizes that the Patriots are just looking at all available options, and nothing is imminent.
