Sam Shields: Past News Updates   ( ▲ View most recent update )

Shields signed a four-year, $39 million contract with the Packers on Saturday, ESPN's Rob Demovsky reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

At first glance, the contract seems like a bit much, but the Packers have plenty of cap room, and quality starting cornerbacks don't come cheap. This deal is likely a sign of things to come, as Shields nearly hit the $10 million-per-year mark, despite ranking in the second or third tier of prospective free agents. He figures to start across from Tramon Williams again, and the Packers' cornerback group has the potential to rank among the league's best, if Casey Hayward (hamstring) can bounce back from a disappointing sophomore campaign to regain his dominant rookie-season form in the slot. Shields piled up 61 tackles (51 solo), four interceptions and 17 pass defenses in just 14 games this season, making him a nice sleeper IDP option heading into 2014.
The Packers have not reached a contract agreement with Shields, who now intends to test his value in free agency, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014

Subscribe now to see our 2014 outlook.

2013

Shields will get a chance to compete for the starting cornerback job opposite Tramon Williams. Even if he does not grab the role, he should play extensively in multiple defensive back formations.

2012

Shields will compete for the starting cornerback spot opposite Tramon Williams, but most likely will be a reserve corner and will see time only in the nickel and dime packages and on special teams.

2011

Shields will work as the third CB.
