So, apparently, some people thought former Redskins running back Clinton Portis died last weekend in a car crash. He didn’t. Portis, in fact, is currently still alive.
“Not sure about the rumor that’s out but I’m alive and well, before it even begins to spread of a car crash!!!!” Portis wrote Monday on his Twitter account. “I'm in bed goodnight world hopefully I don't go in my sleep 2night!”
And if that didn’t satisfy those who truly believed Portis was gone, he went on 106.7 The Fan (via the Washington Post’s Sports Bog) to let the world know he was still breathing.
“That rumor scared the mess out of me, got my mama calling me wanting to talk every hour,” Portis said. “I don’t know where the rumors came from, but I’m alive and well. Man, I done got calls from everybody. I guess it’s a trending topic on Twitter or whatnot....But I’m good, man. I appreciate the people that are worried, but it ain’t my time yet.”

“I enjoyed my time with the Washington Redskins,” Portis said. “I don’t regret anything, I don’t look back and wish I would have changed anything. It was a moment in life. You know, everything comes to an end. That’s relationships, buying a new car, buying a new house.
“You always love it in the beginning, and towards the end, you see a new car that you want, or you feel like you need to upgrade and move, or you want to re-do your house. Nothing lasts forever, and I understand that. And I understand the decision that the Redskins made in moving on....I don’t have any regrets. I think Mr. (Dan) Snyder gave me the opportunity to do something that most people would die for.”
