Ashburn, VA – Two-time Pro Bowl running back Clinton Portis will retire as a member of the Washington Redskins on Thursday, the team announced.
Portis, a nine-year veteran, hasn't played in the NFL since an injury-plagued 2010 campaign. Portis played in just five games, rushing for 227 yards on 54 carries.
The former second-round pick of the Denver Broncos in the 2002 NFL Draft rushed for 9,923 yards and 75 touchdowns in his career, averaging 4.4 yards per carry.
After posting back-to-back 1500-yard seasons with the Broncos in 2002 and 2003, Portis was traded to the Washington Redskins in exchange for conerback Champ Bailey and a second-round pick in the 2004 draft.
Portis rushed for at least 1,300 yards in four of his first five seasons with the Redskins before nagging injuries eventually ended his career.
Portis helped lead the Miami Hurricanes to a National Championship in 2001. He rushed for 1,200 yards and 10 touchdowns on 220 carries that season, highlighted by a 104 yard, one touchdown performance in a 37-14 Rose Bowl win over the Nebraska Cornhuskers.
