Former NFL Player Agrees to Pay Gambling Debt to Borgata

Former NFL running back Clinton Portis has struck a deal to pay off his gambling debts at the Borgata from 2011, allowing the group to recoup nearly $200,000 that the former Pro Bowler owes.

The New Jersey casino extended Portis $200,000 in credit using personal checks as collateral. Those checks ended up bouncing, causing a nearly seven year legal battle between the two parties. The case ended when the former Redskins and Broncos back agreed to make monthly payments through August 2021 where he will pay out 10% of all gross income over $30,000 that he earns. The payout will likely not reach the full debt amount, as Portis filed for bankruptcy in 2015.

The Borgata is one of two casinos that Portis took money from without paying back. The MGM Grand Casino in Las Vegas gave the athlete more than $280,000, and that case remains open.

It seems somewhat fair...I guess now MGM will be after him too...and rightly so.
