Default RUMOR: Texans to pursue Clinton Portis in offseason!

I read this on a very credible site that I frequent.

Makes perfect sense! Ladell Betts has really emerged as a legit #1 back and Washington just extended his contract.

Portis had his best season in Denver under Kubiak in the "zone blocking" system.

Restructuring his contract may be an issue, and I'm not sure what it would take to get him, but I say do whatever it takes! You get Portis and draft a top DB in the first round, Kevin Kolb in the 2nd round and we're on out way!

Here is the actual blurb:

Houston may reportedly show interest in Clinton Portis this offseason.

Here we go. Along with Ron Dayne, Portis, who has a history in Gary Kubiak’s scheme, would form one of the league’s premier backfields. This would free up the Texans to choose a first-round defensive back, defensive end, or even quarterback. Re-working Portis’ contract to make it tradable would be the biggest obstacle for a blockbuster like this.

How are we going to acquire Portis without giving up at least our 1st round pick?

I think that is getting thrown around as Daniel Snyder is reportedly concerned at his large team payroll.

Just a rumor folks, and I copied and pasted the blurb I read about it.

I have no idea what Washington would want for him, but with Betts I bet they wouldn't mind dumping Portis's salary so it wouldn't cost a "Champ Bailey".

That's a good thing since we don't have a "Champ Bailey" to trade.

I would give away a second rounder and Samkon Gado for Clinton Portis, not a first round pick.

Im down for going after Portis, as long as the price is right. He had great sucess with Kubiak, so he could with us. Contracts and actually agreeing on reasonable compensation should kill this unfortunately. It would be a great move for us if we could do it IMo, but I guarantee Washington wants a 1st and we might go as far as a 2nd if talks even reach that far.

No they do not need a QB. That new QB who sucks was their first round pick 2 years ago and is not going anywhere.

Do we really need another injured RB? With him and DD that will equal 8 games and then Dayne can run the other 8!

Carr couldn't beat out Campbell or Brunell and really isn't tradable for anything but another marginal NFL player.

It seems that Portis is in the same situation that Shaun Alexander and Edgerrin James were a few years ago. They both had huge contracts and their teams wanted very high picks for them. The only way to pick up Portis (without giving up picks) will be to trade a player with similar production. Unfortunately, we just don't have a player like that on this team other than DeMeco Ryans.
