NFL veteran running back Clinton Portis bought a five-bedroom, five bath at 3448 NE 31st Ave. in Lighthouse Point for $4.1 million from Turnkey Properties Inc and Remi Developers on March 17, 2006.

The 5,279 square foot home was listed for $4.8 million. It was built in 2006.

Portis, 26, will enter his seventh year in the National Football League in 2008, and his fifth with the Washington Redskins. He's played for the Redskins since 2004, when he was traded from the Denver Broncos for former Redskins All-Pro defensive back Champ Bailey. He's rushed for 4,616 yards and 34 touchdowns in four seasons with the Redskins, including a single-season franchise record 1,516 yards in 2005.

He played two seasons in Denver after he was a second-round pick by the Broncos in the 2002 NFL Draft. He rushed for over 1,500 yards in each season in Denver and was named the NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year in 2002. He was selected to the Pro Bowl in 2003.

Originally from Gainesville, Fla, he was a star at the University of Miami, having rushed for 1,200 yards and 10 touchdowns during the Hurricanes' 2001 national championship season.
