View Full Version : My Take--Portis on the Move Again

The Redskins just gave Betts a 5 yr, 11 million dollar extension. He seems to be a durable back with a good skill set. I just don't see that as the kind of money that you'd invest in a backup RB. It wouldn't surprise me to see the Redskins trade Portis in the offseason.

I could see him going to the following teams:

Denver: Bell can't carry the load, it's obvious. He's a change of pace/3rd down back. This is not good for us.

The Goddamned Jets: They don't have a legitimate back to replace Martin, IMO. Washington and Houston both seem like backups. Portis would give them a franchise back and great option behind a young and rapidly improving solid line.

Houston: This is dependent on how Davis returns from his injury. Dayne, Lundy, and Gado aren't the answer. Portis knows Kubiak from Denver, and he's familiar with their zone blocking scheme. A possible fit. They could also offer a high 2nd for him, which would be good trade fodder for Wash.

Other teams that need backs: Oakland (no way, he'd refuse that trade, and who could blame him) Green Bay (if Green leaves, but I doubt Portis would want to go there either).

I thought this might be interesting to discuss. Just thought about it as I was shaving.

The last time I checked, this was a football message board. It seems at least of some relevance. We've had tons of threads about non-Chiefs, you dumb sonofabitch.

I'm real suprised Betts didn't wait, he could've probably gotten more money. He has kicked some ass the last few games. Reminds me of the good ole BSHS days!

Betts and Maroney.


I wonder if Mizzou would have liked to have had those two in-state products.

F*cking Missouri and their inability to recruit in-state.

Dammit Mizzou :cuss:

He probably jumped the gun b/c he got an assurance that he'd be the feature back next year. He could be a force in that system next year, providing he gets competent QB play.

Until he tears an ACL on a freak play and gets nothing.

He made the right decision.

i liked Betts last year and thought he fit Gibbs style better than portis.

Though i did read almost the exact same thing over on the Skins BB yesterday.:hmmm:

I'd echo some of the later posters in the link Mohillbilly provided. The cap hit would probably be prohibitive and regardless of what Betts brings he's not Portis.

Now when Portis becomes a FA he will likely leave but that's a different story.

How do you know where Portis would want to go? Bottom line is Portis will GLADLY go to where a team will pay him what he wants. I don't think Wash could take cap hit to trade him and in this league you need 2 backs now days.

Would you want to go to the Raiders? A rebuilding Green Bay?

He's not. Played his high school ball in STL, then at University of Minnesota.

If they paid him he would not care, Portis is about the dollars but he is a very good back. I would love to get him back in Denver. My favorite memory of him was the WWF belt game against KC in 03.

I think the cap hit would discourage this. And I doubt the Skins could get good value for Portis considering his injuries, though that hasn't stopped the Skins before. Portis is worth more to the Skins than a 3rd or maybe 2nd round pick.

Betts is a good solid player, but he isn't in the same league as a healthy Portis. Betts still has alot to prove, he has had 2 great weeks, but it was against very bad run defenses. Betts still hasn't shown he can get into the endzone, and his oline has played very well the last few weeks. He hasn't been all that durable either even in a backup role. He is turning 28 and has history of injuries.

The Skins should keep Portis unless they can get decent value for him. Its always nice to have 2 good running backs anyways, especially since both Portis and Betts are injury-prone.
