RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
There was no outlook written for Sam Shields.
Shields will open the 2015 season as the Packerís clear primary corner after the team lost veteran Tramon Williams this offseason. Shields has decent size for a corner and has the foot speed and athleticism to cover most number 1 receivers. While he only tallied 2 interceptions last year, he will have a good chance to exceed that number this season with more targets his way and increased responsibility in the defensive backfield.
Shields signed a four-year deal to remain with the Packers this offseason, and he is set to be the team's top cover guy for the foreseeable future. He tallied four interceptions and 17 pass defenses in just 14 games last season.
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.
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.
Shields will work as the third CB.
