Portis and No. 21

There's been a lot of discussion about whether Clinton Portis will request a change to No. 21...Dan Steinberg reports:

"21 was Sean's number, and for me to put it on, I can't go out and emulate Sean's style. I can't go out and be Sean Taylor. There's no need to drag it along or carry along, or even tease the fans or the people that admire him in putting that jersey on. All I can do is go out and give everything I have. That's what Sean did week in and week out, time after time, always. I've been telling you for a while, that was the best player I've ever seen. For me to go out and put that jersey on, I can't live up to those expectations and I can't be Sean Taylor, so I won't even try it."
