Eleven years ago today, the Washington Redskins landed Clinton Portis in a blockbuster trade with the Denver Broncos.

Portis, who played collegiality alongside Santana Moss and Sean Taylor at Miami, had an instant impact on the Redskins’ offense, rushing for 1,315 yards and five touchdowns in his first season.

The next season, Portis would break Stephen Davis’ franchise record for most rushing yards in a single season — which has since been surpassed by Alfred Morris — with 1,516 yards along with 11 touchdowns.

In seven seasons with the Redskins, Portis rushed for 6,824 yards and 46 touchdowns.
