Throwback Thursday: Redskins Make Huge Player-For-Player Trade

Posted Mar 3, 2016

For today's Throwback Thursday moment presented by Subway, Redskins.com looks back at the Redskins making a huge pre-free agency splash by acquiring Clinton Portis in a trade with the Denver Broncos.

For today's Throwback Thursday moment presented by Subway, Redskins.com looks back at the Redskins making a huge pre-free agency splash by acquiring Clinton Portis in a trade with the Denver Broncos.

It’s not too often that the NFL sees player-for-player trades anymore, let alone between two of the best players in the league, but that was the case on March 3, 2004, when the Washington Redskins and Denver Broncos swapped Champ Bailey and Clinton Portis.

While Bailey – a 1999 first-round pick – had appeared in four Pro Bowls during his five seasons with the Redskins, returning head coach Joe Gibbs wanted to build his offense around a running back capable of carrying the load.

Portis rushed for at least 1,500 yards in his two seasons with the Broncos and continued to be one of the most productive running backs in the NFL during his seven seasons in Washington.

In total, Portis, who scored a 64-yard touchdown his very first carry with the Redskins, rushed for 6,824 yards and 46 touchdowns.

He is second all-time in attempts, rushing yards and rushing touchdowns in franchise history, trailing only Pro Football Hall of Famer John Riggins in all three categories.

Portis was named to the 80 Greatest Redskins list in 2012.
