James, Portis set for unique reunion

It’s a Miami reunion Sunday when Arizona’s Edgerrin James squares off with Washington’s Clinton Portis.

Both played for the Hurricanes, both won the NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year, both have been selected to the Pro Bowl, both got the lucrative contracts they wanted, and both have eye-popping numbers.

James and Portis are two of only six players in league history to play a minimum of 85 games and average at least 110.0 yards from scrimmage per game. James ranks fourth all-time with an average of 115.55 yards per game, while Portis ranks sixth with an an average of 111.47. Interestingly, the six players to average at least 110.0 yards from scrimmage per game are either still active or members of the Pro Football Hall of Fame.
