Why Portis is getting a look

08:00 AM ET 09.01 | Seattle has made a practice of bringing in veterans, which seems consistent with reportedly bringing in Clinton Portis. Everyone should take a deep breath right now, before wondering why Seattle would be interested in an older running back. Exhale. It's very consistent with Seattle's approach to take a look at players -- even veterans -- and see if there's value to be had. A visit doesn't mean a signing is imminent, but obviously there's enough interest to take a look at a back who has missed 19 of 32 regular-season games over the past two years with Washington. ... He has played only 13 games in the previous two seasons combined, however.

There once was a fellow named Portis
Who was so old he ran like a tortoise
He said, "Pete, old pal,
You'd best play me now,
By next year I'll have rigor mortis."

They have a word count that has to be met in the Seattle Times.

Ran out of stuff...

Why wouldn't he get a look? Oh yeah.

I expect great things from Portis this year.

Yes, I AM kidding.

If my passing game was built on Jackson and Whitehurst, I'd be grasping at straws to have some kind of running game, too.

A couple of weeks back he "got a look" in New England. A look, and a plane ticket home.

Im a skins fan and I love Portis, so to see him potentially having to go to the Seattle is heartbreaking. He's only 29 and IF healthy, still a top notch RB to have. Maybe not early 20's Portis elite, but good enough to still get the job done. He gave his all in Washington behind the crappiest O-line imaginable and I wish him the best. Hope he finds a home somewhere so he can crack that 10,000 rushing yard mark for his career plataue.
