Dan Snyder hasn’t had a lot of on-field success as owner of the Redskins, with just three winning seasons since he bought the team in 1999. But Clinton Portis sees something in Snyder that many fans don’t.
Portis has been a longtime defender of Snyder, and in announcing his retirement on Thursday, Portis gushed about what Snyder has meant to him. On Twitter on Thursday, Portis wrote that Snyder is the best owner in sports.
Snyder had similarly high praise for Portis, calling him “a Hall of Fame running back,” and “someone I know very well, and I’m proud to call him my friend and a great Redskin.”
