Plotted to Murder Man Who Blew His Fortune

Ex-NFL superstar Clinton Portis says he loaded up a pistol in an effort to hunt down and KILL one of the people he blames for blowing his fortune … but had a change of heart at the last minute.
Portis says it all went down in 2013 … he stalked an office building in Washington D.C. on several nights with the hopes of confronting one of the people who managed his money.
But Clinton wasn’t looking for a fight — telling SI.com, “It wasn’t no beat up … it was kill.”
FYI, Clinton famously made more than $43 MILLION during his NFL career — before losing it all through a combination of lavish spending and gross mismanagement by financial advisers.
Some members of Portis’ money team were punished by the NFL Player’s Association and a federal regulatory agency for shady dealings — but none of them went to jail for anything to do with Clinton.
The ex-running back was pissed and wanted to take matters into his own hands.
But Portis says a call to a friend saved his life — when she convinced him to holster his gun and think about his family. Portis says the thought of his 4 kids growing up fatherless ultimately convinced him to change his strategy.
Now, Portis says he’s over his murderous anger — and is focusing on growing his career as a member of the media.
