Washington Redskins great running back Clinton Portis just moments ago announced his retirement from football and from the Redskins in a ceremony at the team’s Ashburn, Va., facility.
For seven seasons, Portis gave the Redskins fans the gift of playing the hardest football imaginable — he was a fearless runner and pass blocker who put fear in opposing linebackers in more ways than one.
The Redskins today gave Portis a gift in exchange for all that hard work: an awesome painting depicting the running back carrying the ball against the New York Giants.
Artist LeRoy Neiman painted this beautiful piece of art and titled it “Washington Redskins In FedExField.” It was completed in October, 2005.
Redskins’ public relations staffers Angela Alfano and Dave Lankster are seen in the photos handling the photo and getting it ready for the unveiling.
