May 11-- Springs is safe, even though he isn't here

VP of player Ops Vinny Cerrato joined the John Riggins show today on Triple X ESPN radio and said the team sat down with CB Shawn Springs about two months ago and told him that they would not change the parameters of his contract and he would not be released..
The Skins did ask Springs to take a pay cut earlier in the offseason, threatening his release, but Springs didn't budge and the Skins inability to land Dre Bly left them without a number one corner.. With a 7.4 million dollar cap hit for the 32 year old Springs, the Skins are obviously saying they don't believe Carlos Rogers or Fred Smoot can be a number one..

Springs remains in Arizona with his personal trainer.. He said he isn't coming to Skins OTA's until the first week of June missing basically 3 weeks of voluntary work.. Springs was misdiagnosed last summer when he injured his groin in the pre-season.. He ultimately suffered through a sports hernia and gutted through a few games before injuring his shoulder late in the season.. Staying in Arizona is a sign that Springs may not believe that he is 100% certain that he will be a Redskin this fall even though team officials are saying so.. He also is getting himself in shape under his direction in order to ensure his health for the season no matter what happens.. Springs may have only one shot at one more large signing bonus contract after this season..

Sean Taylor has not been returning the phone calls of team management and is also absent from OTA's.. Taylor has been in and out of Redskin park this off-season working on the field and in the classroom.. But he is not responding to the team.. Cerrato says his agent Drew Rosenhaus has not asked for a contract renegotiation.. But there is a possibility Taylor won't be happy after the team spent 10 mil in bonus alone on Adam Archuletta, and will owe a large signing bonus to draft pick LaRon Landry this summer.. Taylor has multiple years left on his contract so the Skins don't have to feel forced into renegotiating anything as of now unless Taylor becomes a problem.. In the past, Taylor has not missed any mandatory Redskin practices and events..

FB Nehemiah Broughton tore an ACL in practice this week, he will likely be placed on IR forcing him to miss the season.. WR Santana Moss strained a hamstring in practice and took it easy the rest of the week..

10 of the rookies who worked out during the rookie camp are going to be signed and likely will be with the team next week..
