Redskins running back Clinton Portis, who was criticized by past coaches for his offseason conditioning habits, says that won't be a problem for him. At the conclusion of the final practice of Shanahan's first minicamp, Portis said he feels more committed than he has in recent years.
"I actually do. It's a difference when you say commitment and you want someone to buy into a system that you really don't believe in," Portis said. "I think having Coach Shanahan here, you just believe in whatever he say. If he tell you, 'I think we can jump off the roof, that we going to land safe.' It's like, 'All right, [expletive] it, let's jump.'"
