(NEW YORK) — Since Randy Moss and Terrell Owens are attempting to make NFL comebacks, Clinton Portis figured he’d throw his name into the mix as well.
The former Pro-Bowl running back last played for the Washington Redskins during the 2010 season, but took the field for just five games, rushing for only 227 yards because of a torn groin muscle. Portis has been given medical clearance to play again.
“I’m ready to go back, ready to work things out and I’m open to idea of going out to prove that I can still play,” Portis told NFL.com. “I just turned 30 and with nine years in the NFL and six 1,000 yard seasons that’s enough right there to show what I can do. I’m just ready to go prove to whatever team that’s ready and willing to open the doors to go out and prove it.”
If Portis does make it back to the NFL in 2012, he will need just 77 rushing yards to pass 10,000 for his career.
