    Not a huge surprise, I think most of us thought he was a bubble-guy anyway.

    Not a real big spell-checkin' guy...

    Springs getting cut was expected, hopefully the other rookies will follow suit and be signed soon as well.

    Wow, and I had just given three reasons this morning why I expected him to stay over Wheatley.

    Haha, oh well. I'll take my crow with ketchup please.

    Good news for Wheatley, he had damn sure better play well in whatever role he will be in. Say what you want about Springs' attitude but unlike AD I thought he was pretty solid whenever he was on the field.

    Very unsurprising, there's no way they were going to cut Wheatley or Arrington to make room for Springs.

    Reiss correct in his assessment:

    Why keep a 4th/5th CB who cant play Special Teams?

    Expected, but not so soon.

    I thought he would have been around for some of TC. At least the rookie signings have started to happen :)

    I told you guys months ago that he was going to be cut,he was a waste of a spot and he should have retired 2 years ago.

    Why now, though? It's not like they needed to cut anyone yet to sign Larsen (by the end of the signings, though, they will). . . .

    Re: Springs Cut, Larsen signed.

    they're about to sign Mankins to a major deal...this release was to clear Springs 3 year, $9 million contract from 2008...i believe that they could still resign him for a 1 year cheap deal
