NFL: Patriots release veteran CB Shawn Springs

Associated Press

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. The New England Patriots have released veteran cornerback Shawn Springs, who played sparingly after being signed to a three-year, $10.5 million contract with the team prior to last season.

The 35-year-old Springs appeared in 12 games and had 39 tackles and one interception for the Patriots.

The 13-year veteran has also played for the Seattle Seahawks and the Washington Redskins.

The Patriots drafted Rutgers cornerback Devin McCourty in the first round of last month's draft and re-signed veteran cornerback Leigh Bodden. They also have Darius Butler, a second-round choice last season, and third-year player Jonathan Wilhite.
