    Washington Redskins running back Clinton Portis will likely be released very soon, head coach Mike Shanahan revealed. "He's got a high (salary) number next year, one that we gotta make a decision on what direction we're gonna go," Shanahan said. "I always tell these veteran players that if you've got a high (salary) number, we're gonna let you hit free agency. It doesn't mean we don't want you, but we think in fairness to you, we want you to check out the market. "And with a guy like Clinton, all I can say is that we're gonna be fair to him. And we haven't made a decision yet, but when we do, we'll talk to him and let him know what we're gonna do and kinda go from there." Portis turns 30 in August and is due $8.254 million in base salary in 2011, along with a $500,000 roster bonus.

    No shock with this one, if there is no interest we may bring him back as a backup but i expect us to go with Torain and Williams
