Report: Shawn Springs to Sign With Pats

by Matt Snyder

According to a report in The Providence Journal, the New England Patriots are going to sign former Redskins cornerback Shawn Springs sometime this week. The Redskins decided to re-up with DeAngelo Hall to go opposite Carlos Rogers on the outside, so the aging and injury-prone Springs was deemed expendable and released.

This could end up being a very nice signing for the Patriots. No terms of the deal have been reported yet, so we don't know if they overpaid. Assuming they didn't, though, the Pats have acquired a solid corner who still has a few years left.
