Packers | Sam Shields a top priority?

Thu, 06 Feb 2014 10:00:20 -0800

Green Bay Packers impending free-agent CB Sam Shields may be the team's No. 1 offseason priority in terms of free agents. He will likely command a hefty deal on the market as one of the top available free agents. It's unclear if Green Bay will be able to commit the resources to keep Shields on board, but they're expected to talk with his agent, Drew Rosenhaus, at the NFL Scouting Combine later this month. It's unlikely the Packers will use the franchise tag on him, because the value for cornerbacks is likely to be around $10.854 million.
