ProFootballTalk has a post up at the moment headlined “Portis Doesn’t Show For Start Off Redskins’ Offseason Workouts”. It’s highlighting a quote from Jim Zorn last week in which Zorn mentions that he doesn’t expect Portis to attend offseason workouts.
Our friends at the Red Zone noticed at the bottom of an article about the Redskins’ offseason workout program a mention of the fact that star running back Clinton Portis is expected to be a no-show for Day One.
“I fully expect him to be here participating at some point,” coach Jim Zorn said, according to the Washington Post. “I talked to Clinton on the phone yesterday, and he knows what it means. He’s just trying to work out his schedule. He’s been working out his schedule.”
Yeah, it’s hard to “work out his schedule” with more than two months off since the last day of work.
But here’s the thing: Clinton Portis was absolutely here today — I saw him myself — and, according to the people I asked, he did indeed work out. (I asked in case he had dropped by for some other, unrelated reason, although I really can’t think of what that might’ve been.) Sure, it’s not nearly on the level of declaring Terry Bradshaw dead, but it’s still a little peculiar. That said, the Albert Haynesworth photoshop he links to is actually kinda funny.
(UPDATE: PFT has corrected this.)
