ASHBURN, Va. -- Clinton Portis is announcing his retirement, nearly two years after he played his last NFL game.
The Washington Redskins said Tuesday that Portis and owner Dan Snyder will hold a retirement news conference Thursday.
The Redskins cut Portis after a torn groin muscle ruined his 2010 season, unwilling to pay for another year of his expensive contract.
He was unable to find another team and ends his career 77 yards shy of 10,000, No. 27 on the NFL's all-time list.
