Shawn Springs visits Eagles

Springs is here! No, not spring. My frozen second-floor cold water pipe knows better than that. It's really, really cold for March, or any other darned time. But Shawn Springs, the corner the Redskins released because they always have to release a bunch of Dan Snyder's old favorite free agent toys to make room for his new free agent toys every year, is visiting the NovaCare complex.

Springs is here! No, not spring. My frozen second-floor cold water pipe knows better than that. It's really, really cold for March, or any other darned time. But Shawn Springs, the corner the Redskins released because they always have to release a bunch of Dan Snyder's old favorite free agent toys to make room for his new free agent toys every year, is visiting the NovaCare complex.

The visit started today and will continue tomorrow, with a media availability scheduled for the afternoon. That probably means a signing.

What does this mean? Good question. The Eagles have a roster spot, with Lito Sheppard finally traded, but they just paid Joselio Hanson handsomely to be their nickel corner; hard to see Springs being happy with Lito's old role. Can he play safety? That would be good. He did have six sacks in 2004, so he has to be able to play inside a little, right?
 

Springs, 33, spent the last five seasons with the Redskins after beginning his career with the Seattle Seahawks (third overall pick in the 1997 draft). Springs has 32 interceptions and has been selected to the Pro Bowl once.

BTW, in case you hadn't noticed, Tra Thomas has not signed with the Jags. That doesn't mean he's coming back here, though.
