If were a GM, I wouldn't give anything higher than a mid-4th for Springs and that would be pushing it. Don't get me wrong, I love Springs, but I don't think he has as much trade value as people might think.
The most trade value Shawn Springs has is on this board. The fact is that he CAN'T stay healthy. In 10 seasons he's missed at least 4 games 4 times. He's played in 16 games 3 times and 15 games 3 times. Another problem I have is that TO flat out has his number.

On the other hand, Dre Bly has missed 4 games only once in 8 seasons. He's even got 6 more career picks than Springs. Now, he takes more chances, but he's got 2 less seasons on him and a lot more seasons of not missing significant time.

Finally, as for him being a malcontent, I think most people would be in Detroit. I mean really, who wants to play in Detroit? All the Skins have to worry about is winning, if you win he won't say anything. Also, I doubt the Skins will miss Springs' "leadership," I mean, who else could they find to talk smack from the bench about guys who don't play their anymore in games they're not even going to try to go in?

That would be an awesome trade....for us
that's pretty tempting. we'd lose out on okoye though unless someone took betts for picks this late in the game.

I have a problem with moving Shawn Taylor to strong safety. He can play free safety. He plays a mean free safety. I would want him downfield instead of the guy in the box. He's always played free and he's been a monster. He had a down year last year (just like everyone else). I think moving him would be a mistake. Also, what makes everyone so sure Shawn Springs can play safety or stay healthy at free safety for that matter?

Look what i just found i don't know what going on.

Quote:
DENVER -- The Broncos have heard cornerback Dre' Bly is bitter about being traded to Denver, and that he'd prefer to play for Washington.

The team, though, wants to give him some time to warm up to the deal. It's only been a few days since the 29-year-old Bly was acquired from Detroit -- along with a sixth-round pick -- for running back Tatum Bell, offensive lineman George Foster and a fifth-round pick.

i agree that jlc is a donkey, his articles are brutal and do nothing for me...on another note, we should keep springs unless denver really is going to give us a first, second, and third on top of bly....that would equal a no brainer in my mind, i dont know a front office that wouldnt do that...haha except maybe ours.

Springs can play strong safety way better than AA and if he gets hurt we still have VFox and Prioleau and Last and least AA

I actually think he is one of the Post's better writers. I've been conversing with the guy for several months now via emaiil and he's a decent guy, with a LOT of connections, and is pretty damn smart. His blog was a great idea - he gets to print rumors (with some foundation) and actually breaks news on that site long before other news outlets do. For me, the blog is an offseason Godsend.

I second that.
