Springs Just Wants to Do His Job

FOXBORO — Shawn Springs was inactive for four straight games, but following the loss to the Dolphins, the 34-year-old cornerback knew he would get back on the field against the Panthers because he practiced with New England’s first-team all week.
Springs maintained his patience during those weeks when he was a healthy scratch, and was ready to play when called upon.
“It’s out of my control all you got to do is when your number is called is go out there and play,” Springs said.
During his four-week hiatus, Springs told the media that he looked at the positives of his situation.
“It’s all in how you look at things. For example, if y’all are reporters and get paid to do a job and they told you could relax and watch it on TV some people might be excited about it. I don’t know.” Springs said.
Springs used the generic, “Just do my job” answer on a couple of occasions. (When asked if he felt there could be a little more communication between Bill Belichick and the players, he responded, “I just do my job.” Responding to another question if he was wondering when he would play again, Springs answered, “Nope. I just come in here, get my book and do my job, I don’t wonder [about] nothing.”
