According to a report, cornerback Sam Shields is seeking around $5 million annually from the Green Bay Packers. That's hardly an outrageous amount.


This is a NO-BRAINER if it is an accurate report!!!

I would consider Sam Shields a steal at 5.7 mil a year.

I don't give a damn whether he has made a probowl or not.

The report seems to be quoting Drew Rosenhouse.

DON'T BALK ON THIS ONE TED, that is if it's accurate.

I hope this is true and that we get this done.

Do I dare get my muppet hopes up that we can sign Shields for this amount, restructure Williams, let Raji go AND honestly have some money to sign a free agent or two that could help fill a hole on our defense while keeping all our current key pieces?

Raji is off the books as of 2013, but yes, if they could sign Sam at 5.7 mil, and extend Tramon to lower his cap # for 2014, The Packers could still have 30mil+ to work with to spend however they feel is right.

Tramon is going to count in the area of 9.5 mil in 2014, 7.5 is base salary, 2 mil is dead money(signing bonus money)
The Packers could extend him for 3 years, turn that 7.5 mil into a signing bonus, for this post let's make it easy and make it 8 mil signing bonus.
That could be spread out over 4 years(2mil a year), then pay him 1mil(2013), 3 mil (2014), 4mil(2015 and 2016).
Even if Tramon would end up playing out the full 4 years, his cap # would never be over 6 mil.

That would free up 4.5 mil in 2014(Ted would only use about 1 mil of the current 30mil available).

Today's NFL contracts are all about signing bonuses and guaranteed money, the rest as "they say" is agent window dressing.

I think the report was quoting an unnamed "source familiar with Rosenhaus"... which doesn't give us a clue who the source is nor their real knowledge.

Because I'm a little bit familiar with Rosenhaus, so I could be a random source. Rosenhaus has a bad rep but really he doesn't like wasting time and tries to go hard after what his client wants and get it down fast as he can. Really he's not bad, just goes after what the client wants (which sometimes isn't realist) and he's an attention hog and will take as much of it as he can get.

But the report has Tom Silverstein, and Silverstein takes the sources stuff VERY serious (maybe a bit too serious?) anyways his sources haven't been perfect but he gets the best info he can.

Also the unnamed source said they was basing it off that other deal... it doesn't say how closely or what part they're basing it off of. Shields could want 6.3 million a year (or more) with baseing four years and 50% be guaranteed, and 8 million in the first could be the base off the deal.




Bu yeah anyways under 6 million a year doesn't seem that bad, then again I don't think we've gone though and compared every single play like the Packers did. Shields could be worse than fans think and the fans just missed it because the Safeties are HORRIBLE last year. Though I think Shields did pretty well but I'm honestly surprised they're not looking for over 6 million (then again maybe they are we don't know).

I don't care for rosey at all. I am suspect of the "source". Even if he frustrates the hell out of us Ted isn't stupid. The deal with get done sometime before training camp. We just have to wait no matter how much it stinks to wait.

uffda udfa (57m) : It's just fine.
musccy (1h) : 5 questionable Packers, none for Falcons. Not good.
uffda udfa (1h) : Jordy not listed as OUT or DOUBTFUL. Questionable on injury report.
uffda udfa (2h) : This is the 6th straight game we've faced someone for the 2nd time. We learn.
uffda udfa (2h) : Aaron: I like our role. I like our chances. (said he relishes being an underdog)
uffda udfa (2h) : Aaron alludes to fake crowd noise at Georgia Dome for Sunday.
uffda udfa (3h) : So, to recap. Losing streak "just the way it is", winning streak "astronomical feat". #Balanced
uffda udfa (3h) : Ironically, he called the turn around "astronomical" not just the way it is in the NFL. #Don'tMissTheIrony
uffda udfa (3h) : Ted tells Demovsky the Packers weren't underachieving when 4-6. Just the way it is in the NFL????
Zero2Cool (7h) : Only time I recall getting annoyed is when they beat a single topic over and over and over.
Pack93z (7h) : Most yes... Heller seems to get it more so... diversity in his coverage... but seemingly can highlight the pressing issues properly.
Zero2Cool (7h) : I'm kind of in the boat that they all are babblying boonies.
Pack93z (7h) : God bless it... Bill Michaels can be a stubborn SOB at times... love his Packers coverage, still think he is a buffoon at times.
Zero2Cool (8h) : Jordy Nelson Named PFWA Comeback Player of the Year
Zero2Cool (9h) : Carter is predicitng the end is in ATL for Packers.
Porforis (9h) : Or I could just completely miss the part where that was Cris Carter.
Porforis (9h) : Careful there. Don't you want to predict a Packers loss just in case?
Zero2Cool (10h) : @criscarter80 :Every fairy tale comes to an end, and this is where the magic carpet ride stops in the ATL.
Zero2Cool (10h) : McCarthy: "JC Tretter actually had surgery Tuesday. He won't be available this week"
Zero2Cool (11h) : Crosby is fine now. Full Participant in practice Thursday
Porforis (12h) : What I'm more worried about at this point is WR injuries and Crosby being sick. Who'd be the backup if Crosby can't go?
Zero2Cool (12h) : We do have hope. Our secondary has improved. Also, he had to throw 80% to get 1 point up. That won't happen again.
Zero2Cool (12h) : I like to tease sometimes.
uffda udfa (12h) : Only 80%? :). We lost by one given that stat? Wish we had hope of tightening up.
uffda udfa (12h) : Z, u should tell everyone who Quintorris is. Quintorris Lopez Jones, better known as Julio.
Zero2Cool (12h) : Matt Ryan completed 80% of his passes against Packers in October.
uffda udfa (12h) : McGinn goes full on attack mode dismissing the notion of "Packers people". Harsh.
uffda udfa (12h) : McGinn says John Dorsey likely to be next Packers GM.
Zero2Cool (15h) : Boom! Davante Adams says last year's ankle injury "more difficult to deal with'
uffda udfa (18h) : Packers brass potentially leaving? Not worthy of discussing. Pressure Cooker? Never enough talk about them.
Zero2Cool (23h) : Put Quintorris in a pressure cooker.
uffda udfa (19-Jan) : Back to football: Julio says he's going to play Sunday. Did NOT say he wouldn't be limited in the game.
uffda udfa (19-Jan) : Anyone ever used their dishwasher to make their Thanksgiving turkey?
uffda udfa (19-Jan) : Favorite Ronnie Milsap song? Smokey Mountain Rain or Any Day Now?
uffda udfa (19-Jan) : Favorite GM candidate... Wolf or Gutekunst?
