  Bears | Unlikely to go after Shawn Springs    Mon Jun 28, 08:46 PM

The Chicago Bears are unlikely to go after free-agent CB Shawn Springs (Patriots), reports the Chicago Tribune's Brad Biggs. It is unlikely Springs would join the team for the veteran minimum and it is believed the team has spent the maximum of their budget for 2010. Head coach Lovie Smith said the team likes the depth they have at cornerback now. Smith added, "Shawn will always be family to me, but right now we like where we are."

  Broncos | Could have interest in CB Springs    Wed May 19, 10:42 AM

Cecil Lammey, from Footballguys.com, reports the Denver Broncos may have some interest in veteran cornerback Shawn Springs now that he's been released by the Patriots.

Footballguys view: The Broncos have made several moves to upgrade their secondary in the draft and free agency over the last two years. They might not have room for a veteran like Springs unless injuries hit during training camp.

  Chiefs | Could have interest in CB Springs    Wed May 19, 10:42 AM

Cecil Lammey, from Footballguys.com, reports the Kansas City Chiefs may have some interest in veteran cornerback Shawn Springs now that he's been released by the Patriots.

Footballguys view: Interest from the Chiefs would make a little more sense than Denver. Kansas City has less talent and depth in their secondary, and Springs could be a competent backup behind guys like Brandon Carr and Brandon Flowers.

  NFL | Shawn Springs underwent knee surgery following last season    Wed May 19, 10:22 AM

Free-agent CB Shawn Springs (Patriots) revealed that he had arthroscopic knee surgery shortly after the team's playoff loss to the Baltimore Ravens, according to the Boston Globe. However, Springs added that his recent release was not due to the injury. He has had some swelling in the knee but said he was prepared to participate in the Patriots' upcoming passing camp. 'It's not a knee issue,' Springs said.

Footballguys view: Last season was a rough one for the veteran Springs. He lost his job and was a healthy scratch for more than a few games last year. Perhaps he can provide quality veteran depth on a team like Kansas City.
