Default Shanny cut CP today, should Denver be interested in bringing him back where it started?

Ironically, days after Champ gets his extention - so did the Broncos "win" that trade or is it a no-contest considering the same guy who made the trade for the Broncos is the one who cut him with the Skins? Hmmmmm...

Anyway, with John Fox teams generally going pretty deep at the RB position - should the Broncos consider bringing Portis back to finish where he started at a cheap price - competing with White, Buck and maybe another guy for carries alongside Knowshon or maybe they make a more expensive signing for a premier guy like DeAngelo Williams or Michael Bush?

In Carolina, Fox always had at least 2 guys who could tote the rock - sometimes more - so you gotta figure at least one new back is in the fold... maybe it's CP?

Please tell me you are kidding right

The guy has missed more games than he has played the past 2 seasons. We have enough injured RB's we can bring back.

If it was cheap enough.

I love Champ, but it was too bad we had to get rid of CP I loved watching him run the ball for the broncos.

I'm thinking in a reserve role on a 1-year deal with no guarantees. He could teach Knowshon a thing or two about pass-pro.

Why he takes up a roster spot. He's washed up. Use the roster spot on a player who might actually help you. .

No thanks.

If he'd stayed in Denver, he'd be a first-ballot HOF'er.

The only help he'll be giving the team will be either keeping the bench warm or keeping The Greek company all season. Portis is done and has been for a couple years now.

I thought that KM's specialty was pass-pro? The only time the kid looks like he was worth the 15th pick in the draft is when we play KFC and they are selling out to stop the Chuck it deep to Lloyd.

I swear Portis did the same thing. Seems half his numbers came against KFC as well.

Don't think CP is washed up. Washington was trying to use him as a pounder. Our blocking scheme fit him much better and / or we were just implementing it much better than them. I think he should heal up and be a real contributor for the right team.

I don't remember the article I read recently, but maybe he has played 19 of the last 32 games? We just don't need that.

Find a young guy with an upside, or a cap casualty, but just say "no" to washed up old RB's. I loved young Clinton Portis, but he is no longer the home run threat, or the powerhouse that he used to be.

The guy that originally drafted him doesn't even want him anymore. He's done.

No way. The guy's so used up that even his alter-egos are tired.

Wow not too may a fan of bring back CP... lol - just an idea. As per White, last I heard he was rehabbing at Dove Valley. In fact, the day Fox was hired there were only two Broncos working out at the facility: White and Tebow.
