Chalk up another veteran skill player heading to Foxborough for a workout.

According to PFW correspondent and Boston Herald writer Ian Rapoport, former Redskins RB Clinton Portis had a workout with the Patriots on Friday.

Portis, 29, is a free agent. He has played in 13 combined games over the last two seasons. In five games in 2010, he rushed for 227 yards on 54 carries and two touchdowns.

The Redskins released Portis on Feb. 28. He missed most of last season with a groin injury.

The way we see it

With a loaded backfield, this seems to be yet another case of due diligence being done by the Patriots' personnel staff. It will be hard as is to decide which current backs to keep. The team reportedly worked out WRs T.J. Houshmandzadeh and Mark Clayton this week.
