Clinton Portis, a former National Football League player who played for the Denver Broncos and the Washington Football Team, has acknowledged his participation in a scheme to commit healthcare fraud. Along with fellow former professional football players Tamarick Vanover and Robert McCune, Portis has pleaded guilty to the charges and faces jail time.
The two-time Pro Bowl participant played for two years with the Denver Broncos before playing for several years with Washington. During his post-retirement years, he was millions of dollars in debt despite the lucrative earnings of his NFL career. His net worth is considered to be negative at this point thanks to bankruptcy and legal costs.
Why Clinton Portis went broke
It’s estimated that Portis earned a total of $43.1 million during his nine years playing pro football. There’s nothing left to show for his NFL career with Denver and Washington because he filed for bankruptcy in 2015.
