    I heard that Portis is changing his number to 21 in memory of his friend. I have yet to see a link on it but its been reported on some sites.

    Great Gesture by CP :icon_cool:

    If this is true it really is a great gesture

    i think they would retire his number to honor him rather than letting someone else have it. portis is doing it to honor his best friend, but it should be up to his family what happens with it

    I agree.

    Yea I read about it on a Broncos site.
    Then I went to and someone reported that someone on comcast or whatever said he was going to do that.

    I hope its true. Classy move.
    And I think the family would like to see Portis wear it since he is close with them.

    They were teammates at University of Miami so they go back further than just their time in Washington together. I think it's great that he is doing this, but I think he should only do it for the game this week, then hang his jersey up in tribute, never to be worn again.

    It's cool to let clinton wear it, then at the end of the season retire it. I think people would burn redskin park to the ground if they let just anyone off the street wear it.

    I agree that they should let him wear it but only for a game or until the end of season. Class move to honor a friend by Portis but I am sure the Redskins and other team mates want to honor him also.

    The team will have a patch on their jersey and a 21 on their helmets. Dan Snyder said every team will have a 21 on their helmets though Im not positive he meant every team of just his team.

    I think the gesture is quality and I think the Skins will eventually retire the number in someway.

    I agree that it should just be one game or for the rest of the season. Great gesture though.

    I think for one game only if he is allowed to change his number it shows how much respect he had for sean taylor.

    Yeah, it's going to happen, I think he's changing it for the rest of the year, but I know it's a definite for Sunday.

    I dont think they will retire it. Maybe put something up in the stadium with his mention, but they wont retire it IMO. I think it would be a great thing if Portis changed it until he retires. It would be a perfect tribute.

    Now I heard he isn't going to wear his number :(

    I really wanted him to as well but he said he wouldn't feel right wearing it.

    How about they all wear #21 for the Bills game? The Cameroon Soccer Team did it in the Confederations Cup when Foe passed away.

    Yeah I read he went on a radio show and said he wasn't going to wear it. That sucks.
