The former college and NFL star revealed he had to get talked out of murdering someone.
Clinton Portis had to get talked out of murdering someone, according to a new story by Sports Illustrated.
The former star running back for the Miami Hurricanes and multiple NFL teams made more than $40 million during his career, but lost a lot of it due to bad financial management.
Portis, now 35, told SI that he was ready to kill a financial manager who he blamed for his loss of money.
The former Hurricanes' star was sitting outside of a building with a gun in hand, ready to kill the man, before being talked out of it by a friend.
“It wasn’t no beat up,” Portis told the magazine. “It was kill.”
Portis added that if he hadn't been calmed down that night, he probably would be in prison right now.
The two-time Pro Bowler filed for bankruptcy in 2015.
