    I'd be surprised if retirement happens. He didn't sound like someone who was giving it real serious consideration.

    He'd actually be helping the Pats if he retires.

    Is this news supposed to scare us?

    Springs is a long gone talent who left the peak of his career far back.

    Time to get even more younger and faster - Without Wilhite unless he does something special in TC

    Wilhite will be on this team in 2010 regardless of what he does in TC.

    That's not good. When healthy, Springs is solid.

    If the Patriots improve the pass rush (aka generate any pass rush), then all of the CBs will look better even Willhite.

    Signing off Deputy Duhhhhh :p

    I'll dump them both and take Cromartie who is reported to be on the trading block

    130 Tackles and 15 INTs and 2 TDs in the last 3 seasons and you say he sucks?

    If he sucks then our guys currently at CB should not even be in the league.

    He should have to give back part of his signing bonus if he retires. He promised us 3 years, and gave only one.

    Watch me get railed on for this post. Why do so many posters get off insulting people on these message boards and putting people down? Is this how they stoke their egos?

    I said Kaczur could play guard next year and one guy got apoplectic. "Have you EVER EVEN PLAYED FOOTBALL?". Well, yes I have, but is that a requirement to post here?

    Disable Jersey

    YouTube - Antonio Cromartie WTF are you doing?

    I'm not sure this is the sort of thing Belichick finds acceptable.

    I wouldn't give more than a bucket of beatup range balls for those 2, and that would only be so I could use them up in preseason as gunners for stealing the $ they have so far.
    After PS I would make one a towel boy, and the other the official toilet washer.

    Jesus. What a puss.

    As for Wilhite, I don't mind him or Wheatley in the nickelback role.

    He is NOT retiring after all.

    from Chris Gasper on Twitter. Whoever he is
    Twitter / Chris Gasper: Just talked to Shawn Sprin ...

    Just talked to Shawn Springs. He is not planning to retire at this point. "Nah, I don't think so. I still got a lot to play for," he said.
