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

    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

    Shawn Springs, Chris Baker, Adalius Thomas gone.

    Bad lockeroom guys who weren't good football players, great.

    Count me among the surprised. I thought Springs was a stabilizing force late in the year. Maybe it was all the crap QBs the Pats faced down the stretch (Shaub excluded).

    Springs struck me as the gritty vet CB that Belichick likes to keep around. Someone in the Char Scott or OTIS mold. Oh well, I'll take it as a statement of confidence in the young backs.

    Well said. Springs was AD's partner in crime. Remember their very public and sarcastic apologies in front of the press in the locker room. "Sorry Shawn."
    "Sorry Adalius". ( although Springs was not one of the snow storm late arrivals, he sure had a fun time sticking it to BB. )

    Bye, Bye Shawn.....................

    Its almost like the Corleones clearing up at the end of each Godfather movie.

    So is BB Michael or Vito?
