Clinton Portis Wants To Play Washington Redskins Twice A Year

Oh, for crying out loud, people. First, we get upset that free agent Carlos Rogers, who is likely not returning to the Redskins, says he wants to play the Redskins twice a year to show them what they are missing. Now, Clinton Portis, who was released just before the lockout began, is saying the same thing.

CSN Washington's Rich Tandler transcribed an interview Portis did on SIRIUS XM Radio, during which Portis said he would like to play for the New York Giants in part because they are in the Redskins' division.

"To go to the Giants and get to play the Redskins twice a year after them feeling I wasn't capable any more, I think that would be outstanding," he said.    

Taking a look at the full transcript of the interview, it's clear Portis was responding directly to a question about whether he wanted to play for the Giants. And frankly, he should feel slighted, and he should want to get back at the team that cut him. That's how athletes work.

Anyway, the full interview is worth reading, even if a lot of the things Portis said about the media, his practice habits and such are kind of predictable.
