Clinton Portis Works Out For Dolphins, Who Sign Larry Johnson Instead

Former Washington Redskins running back Clinton Portis remains a free agent, but did work out with the Miami Dolphins, according to Pro Football Talk. Portis had previously worked out for the Patriots, and the Dolphins could use a running back with Ronnie Brown and Ricky Williams both departing.

However, it appears that Portis has been passed over for one of his former teammates: Larry Johnson. The Dolphins officially announced the signing of Johnson just hours after Portis reportedly came in for the workout. Johnson was in Redskins training camp last year before being cut early in the season. He had just two yards on five carries last year before being released.

That's got to be pretty humiliating for Portis if indeed the Dolphins chose Johnson over him. It makes you wonder where he may play next season, if he plays anywhere at all.
