Clinton Portis Was One Colorful Character

Posted by Andrew Walker on August 22, 2012 – 10:15 am

Even if he didn’t have an outstanding seven-year career with the Washington Redskins, running back Clinton Portis still would’ve been remembered as one of the most colorful characters to grace the burgundy and gold.

Portis — who will announce his retirement from football in a ceremony Thursday at Redskins Park — will leave the game as the Redskins’ No. 2 all-time rusher, trailing only the great John Riggins.

But Portis, a former University of Miami star who was acquired by the Redskins via trade with the Denver Broncos in 2002, was also very well-known for breaking out a variety of alter egos during his encounters with the local and national media.

Here’s an awesome slideshow of just a few of those characters, followed by a couple videos of Portis’s shenanigans:
