WT - Springs likes Vincent's switch

Springs likes Vincent's switch*-*Sports*-*The Washington Times, America's Newspaper

Troy Vincent's successful transition to strong safety after 13-plus seasons and five Pro Bowl seasons at cornerback has gotten Washington Redskins teammate Shawn Springs thinking.
Vincent, then 33, made the switch late in the 2004 season in Buffalo. Springs, a Pro Bowl corner for Seattle in 1998 and an alternate for the Redskins in 2004, will be 32 next season.
"I think I could make that move," Springs said. "I would love to do it. I could play another two or three years at corner and then move to safety for another two years. It would depend on whether [the Redskins] would want me to do it."
While Springs had a veteran's day off yesterday because he had been going so hard since returning from pelvic injuries four weeks ago, everyone else practiced. That included backup tight end Christian Fauria, who had sat out the previous two days with a sprained left ankle, and starting receiver Santana Moss, who increased his workload to include deep routes. Both should play tomorrow in Philadelphia.
Coach Joe Gibbs said that he was surprised about Fauria being able to take so much work and that Moss recovered so quickly this week after not being on the field the previous two weeks because of a strained left hamstring.
"Every day I went up the ladder and did more running, more strenuous things to see where it was at," Moss said. "I'm glad I made it through these three days without any setbacks. It's getting back up to strength on a daily basis. That doesn't mean you're fully healed. It means you're going on the right pace."

Re: WT - Springs likes Vincent's switch

good idea, springs definitely has the build to be a SS, and i think either this year or next year is his last year as a CB for us
