Multiple sources have advised us that Portis shows little or no respect to coach Jim Zorn, and that the situation bubbled over at least once during the team’s OTA sessions, with Portis telling the coach off in front of other players.
Said one source: “Portis totally has no regard for [Zorn] and thinks he’s above everyone.”
I seriously hope this isn't true, but I think it's a high possibility that they may have been feuding in some way during the OTAs. We all saw what happened with Zorn and Portis last year so I could definitely see something similar happening again. Also considering the fact that Portis didn't want to be at the OTAs, I could imagine Portis not doing what he was asked and Zorn confronting Portis for it, only for Zorn to be disrespected and blown off by Portis.
We all know that Portis is held on a high pedestal by Snyder so even if he's is in the wrong, Zorn will be the one that is disciplined, possibly by being fired. I like Portis and his high productivity on the field, but if this is true he needs to know that no one is above the team. He needs Zorn and Zorn needs him in order to accomplish our goal of winning, I just hope Portis eventually realizes this.
