It’s Not Overpaying If You Keep Your Guy, Packers Agree

By Vincent Frank

Reports indicate that the Packers have re-signed cornerback Sam Shields to a four-year, $39 million contract. While that’s quite the price to pay for someone with only 35 NFL starts under his belt, it was a necessity for a Packers’ defense that needs all the help it can get in the secondary. Shields has been their best defensive back the last two seasons.
