The Cornerback Carousel

By: Greg
The Cornerback Carousel goes round and round, round and round, round and round. For the last few seasons the Patriots have brought in, thrown out and brought in some more corners. Last season the Patriots signed CB Shawn Spring to a three year deal, this season they have let him go and the carousel begins. The Patriots used their first round pick on a CB and signed Liegh Bodden to a long term deal making Springs expendable.

Last year he played in 12 games, had 40 tackles and one interception. He got a lot more playing time earlier in the season compared to late.

Along with Devin McCourtey (the first round pick out of Rutgers), the Pats have Terrence Wheatley, Darius Butler and Jonathan Whilite to compete to start along side Bodden. All young players, I give Butler the lead in this competition.

ESPN also reports that Springs and the Pats could come to a new agreement but for now they are splitting ways.
