Clinton Portis has lastly emerged from hiding.
It should be no surprise that the Patriots, of all teams, uncovered him. They are the patron saints of player workouts.
Ian Rapoport of the Boston Herald reports that Portis worked out for the Patriots Friday. New England has hosted a lengthy list of player workouts over the final month.
They signed a few of the players. Most of the veterans, like T.J. Houshmandzadeh and Darren Sharper, stay totally free agents. Portis appears to be in the category of “due diligence.”
Running back is maybe New England’s deepest position and we can’t imagine they would take into account signing Portis unless injuries hit.
