Found December 27, 2012 on NFL Draft Zone:
Clinton Portis told the Washington Times he is rooting for sixth round draft pick Alfred Morris on Sunday.  Why would Portis be rooting for him? Because Morris is just 104 yards away from breaking Portis’ record.  “I’m actually rooting for him,” Portis said. “You never really hear him boast and brag about his accomplishments.” Alfred Morris has been a very good pick in the draft, and has been the centerpiece of the Redskins offense even with all the hype that RG3 has received. Both of these rookies are special, but Morris in his first year has already surpassed Terry Allen, and John Riggins on the Redskins single season rushing record.  Morris is averaging 4.67 yards per carry and now only needs 104 yards from breaking Clinton Portis record which was set in 2005 with 1,516 yards.
