In their story, it says that Portis has already filed for bankruptcy. But creditors are still trying to get money from him – even though that he made millions before he retired from rushing the ball.
Plus, his landlord, where he lives, is trying to evict him after not paying $6,500 in back rent. He also reportedly owns his baby mama’s over $400K in child support.
This isn’t the alarming about. He reportedly owes $500K to his mother, another $500K to a female reporter and an additional $300K to casinos.
He doesn’t even have enough in his checking account to cover everything. The story says that he has just a $150 in the bank.
Portis – who played nine years in the NFL with the Washington Redskins and the Denver Broncos – made over $43 million in the league. That’s a whole lot of dough for one to blow in a short-period of time.
Most people will barely make a million in their lifetime, depending on their salary. That’s, of course, if you’re working a good job – making like $50,000 per year and not a burger-flipping job.
When he last played in the NFL in 2010, he made $7.6 million. The year prior, he made just $1.2 million.
In 2004 and 2008, he made over $10 million a year. After being traded to the Redskins for Champ Bailey, he made $13.3 million in ’04.
Then, in 2008, he made $10.4 million.
