New England Patriots cornerback Shawn Springs just finished his 13th NFL season. He’s not sure if he’ll be back for a 14th.
“I don’t know yet,” Springs said when asked on ESPN First Take whether he’s done playing football.
Springs said he has a great relationship with Patriots head coach Bill Belichick, referring to him as “the nicest guy.” But he said he has other things he’d like to do with his life.
“I have so many options right now,” Springs said. “I still really enjoy playing football. Law school would be a great option. Maybe I could negotiate with some of the owners and GMs in the NFL about some of these players coming out. Maybe I could be an agent.”
Springs played in 12 games for the Patriots in 2009, starting eight. He previously played for the Redskins from 2004 to 2008 and for the Seahawks from 1997 to 2003.
