Kyle Shanahan hinted that Clinton Portis, Larry Johnson, and Willie Parker will all make the Redskins final roster, but we don’t expect that to happen.
It seems far more likely that Johnson or Parker will get cut so the Redskins can find some young players to develop that can help on special teams as reserves. One option will be Ryan Torain, who the Redskins signed Monday.
Mike Shanahan drafted Torain in Denver and once said he was “one of the most gifted running backs I’ve been around for a long time.” Injuries have derailed his career since.
The Redskins also signed Marques Hagan. Jerry Porter had a tryout with the team, but they passed on him.
