Running back Clinton Portis hasn’t given up hope on playing in the NFL again.

Portis, who sat out the 2011 season after being released by the Washington Redskins, told NFL.com that he has his passion back after being “heartbroken” after the Redskins cut him.

“I’m ready to go back, ready to work things out and I’m open to idea of going out to prove that I can still play,” Portis told NFL.com. “I just turned 30 and with nine years in the NFL and six 1,000-yard seasons that’s enough right there to show what I can do. I’m just ready to go prove to whatever team that’s ready and willing to open the doors to go out and prove it.”

Portis’ agent, Jason Fletcher, told NFL.com that he has meetings set up with some teams at next week’s scouting combine to discuss his client.

Portis had played in only 13 games in the two seasons before his release because of a severe concussion in 2009 and a torn groin muscle in 2010.

Fletcher told NFL.com that Portis, who is 77 yards of 10,000 career rushing yards, has been given medical clearance to resume his career.
