Charley Casserly of CBS reports that Shanahan has an “open mind” regarding Portis.
And for good reason. As we’ve previously pointed out, Portis has $6.43 million in guaranteed base salary for 2010.
Portis, 28, clearly is in decline. He has had many injuries, and his leg joints have sustained plenty of wear and tear.
Then there’s a concussion problem that landed Portis on injured reserve in 2009.
Either way, the Redskins will be paying him in 2010. Unless they can trade him.
I wonder if the Broncos are interested?
