NFL World Reacts To Tuesday’s Clinton Portis News


Earlier Tuesday, the NFL world learned that former NFL running back Clinton Portis made a decision regarding his trial.

The two-time Pro Bowler pleaded guilty to conspiracy to commit health care fraud. Immediately after the news came out, fans all proceeded to say the same thing.

They all pointed out that Portis made over $43 million during his NFL career. However, poor decisions off the field led him to losing enough money to file for bankruptcy.

“Clinton Portis’ story is a tale of a pro athlete without sound advisors. Despite pleading guilty to federal crimes, it could’ve ended a lot worse,” reported Alicia Jessop said about the former star running back. “Portis earned over $43M and filed for bankruptcy. He contemplated murdering financial advisors who allegedly mismanaged his money.”

Portis faces a maximum sentence of 10 years in prison and a $250,000 fine. He allegedly made just over $100,000 during the fraud scheme. As part of his plea deal, Portis admitted that he participated in a scheme to defraud the plan through false claims.

Additionally, the former All-Pro tailback reportedly needs to make restitution of roughly $99,000 to the Gene Upshaw NFL Players Health Reimbursement Account Plan.

Portis was a star on the field, but his life off the field hasn’t gone according to plan.
