Springs a Washingtonian of the Year

Shawn Springs was honored last night as one of 10 Washingtonians of the Year by Washingtonian Magazine. He was part of a swank scene downtown - strictly black tie - with the area's movers and shakers.

Springs, a Silver Spring native, was honored for his charity work and efforts in the community. He keeps those activities very much on the down low and is never front and center about the causes he supports and the work that he does. Springs has been through a lot personally and professionally the past few years, and I hope he had a great night.

Well Shawn had plenty of time to help the communities. Most his sundays have been free the past few months.

He was expected to start this event up till gametime when he was seen on the floor in suit and tie. But at the last minute he informed event coordinators he wasnt 100% and to let Los22 take his spot for the evening.

Shawn is a good guy and deserves this recognition. It is a shame that he can't stay healthy, because when he is, he is a great corner as well.

Shawn did play in 16 games in 2007, starting in 14 of them.

But that's like a long time ago and stuff.

I like 24. He's a good dude, and one helluva corner when healthy. Problem is those last two words.

What are the chances he's back next year? Presumably it would have to be at a lower salary. I've heard a lot of people say there's no chance he'll take a pay cut but I disagree - does he really think the market is strong for a 35 yr old, injury prone DB? Guessing that Snyder would still give him $3 million or so, best offer he's gonna get.

Thank you Shawn. He definitely deserved this particularly given all that has happened with his dad.

Congratulations to Shawn Springs on the good stuff he does for the community. I wish the guy could stay healthy but at 35 his body just can't handle it anymore, he couldn't stay healthy last year, this year, and if he's around won't stay healthy this year
