Portis To Announce Retirement Thursday

Posted Aug 21, 2012

Clinton Portis, whose 6,824 rushing yards rank second all-time in Redskins history, will announce his retirement in a Thursday ceremony at Redskins Park.

On his very first carry as a member of the Washington Redskins in 2004, Clinton Portis took the ball 64 yards to the house for a touchdown.

It was the first of many highlight moments for Portis in his six-years in Washington, which will officially end Thursday when the two-time Pro Bowl selection will announce his retirement in a ceremony at Redskins Park.

Portis, whose 6,824 rushing yards rank second all-time in Redskins history, went to Twitter Tuesday to show his gratitude towards the Redskins and his fans.

“It’s a beginning and an end,” Portis tweeted. “This is just the new beginning to the rest of my life, the game was great to me! HTTR I’m forever a skin!!!!”

Portis was acquired by the Redskins in 2004 via trade from the Denver Broncos, where the University of Miami product rushed for at least 1,500 yards and 14 touchdowns in each of his first two seasons.

Portis resumed his dizzying rushing pace in Washington, where he rushed for more than 1,000 yards four times, including the 2005 campaign, in which Portis’s 1,516 rushing yards set the franchise’s single-season record.

From 2004 to 2010, Portis was selected to two Pro Bowls as he finished 8,164 yards from scrimmage and had 26 100-yard games.

Most importantly, Portis said he learned how to grow up during his time in D.C.

“I think I came here as a 22 year-old beginning to understand life and I left as a 30 year-old grown man,” Portis said. “For seven years, the maturity level, understanding the business side of things, the blood, sweat and tears, how big Redskins Nation really is and how the fans of Redskins Nation love this organization.”

Portis’s retirement ceremony will take place at 2:30 p.m. Thursday at Redskins Park.  Redskins Owner/Chairman Daniel M. Snyder is expected to participate in the festivities.
