RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
There was no outlook written for Shawn Springs.
The 6-0, 207-pound Springs can play cornerback or safety and will likely secure a starting gig with the Pats at cornerback, where the team could absolutely use some added size.
Will probably start the season as the 'Skins starting cornerback. Had four interceptions in 2007 after only two in the previous two seasons. He is getting older and is not the most durable cornerback. Expect him to split time with Fred Smoot and Carlos Rogers.
The Redskins spent the offseason trying to rework Springs' contract. When things fell through the team looked to trade him. Not surprisingly there were no suitors looking for an aging, injury prone cornerback with a huge contract. So Springs starts 2007 still with the Redskins and possibly some bad blood. He will compete with Fred Smoot and Carlos Rogers for a starting spot. Springs will tally a few interceptions but it is unlikely he will be healthy for a full season.
Springs had a down year in 2005 as he was plagued by a painful shin and groin injuries much of the year. Expect him to improve upon his one interception in 2005.
Springs led the Redskins in interceptions with five and tied for the lead in sacks with six. Expect him to produce around the same number of interceptions but not sacks. Prior to 2004 Springs had only 1.5 sacks in his career.
Springs and opposing corner Fred Smoot will each get turns at the other teams' top receivers, and while Springs has always been a quality cover corner, he hasn't posted big interception numbers since his younger days. You shouldn't expect too much more than three INTs in 2004.
Springs is getting older, but he still is a quality DB. Had three INTs last year. Don't expect many more.
